The powerful Zen 3 Ryzen 5000-series CPUs from Team Red’s next generation AMD Ryzen 7000 series processors may not be as far off as you believe. If the rumors are true, we should expect a launch in a little more than a month.
The new chips will be using AMD Zen 4 5nm architecture, which will give them a significant technological edge over Intel. Before moving on to the core specs, it is important to note that while the AMD Zen 4 architecture improves IPC by 8–10%, the majority of the performance gain comes from the higher clock rates and higher TDP added to each chip compared to the previous generation.

Specs of the Ryzen 7000-series
As per the Benchleaks Twitter bot, Ryen 7000 series is likely to comprise both a 16-core/32-thread CPU and an 8-core/16-thread chip. According to this, the L2 cache size is double that of the Zen 3 at 1MB per core.
|CPU||PROCESS NODE||CORES / THREADS||BASE CLOCK||BOOST CLOCK||CACHE||TDP|
|AMD Ryzen 5 7600X||5nm||6/12||4.7 GHz||5.3 GHz||38 MB (32+6)||105W|
|AMD Ryzen 7 7700X||5nm||8/16||4.5 GHz||5.4 GHz||40 MB (32+8)||105W|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7900X||5nm||12/24||4.7 GHz||5.6 GHz||76 MB (64+12)||170W|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7950X||5nm||16/32||4.5 GHz||5.7 GHz||80 MB (64+16)||170W|
Also, the rumors suggest that the AMD Ryzen 7 7800X, an 8-core CPU, has a purported boost speed of 5.2GHz as opposed to the 5800X’s boost speed of 4.7GHz. Additionally, it might include an integrated GPU, which would indicate that it would have built-in graphics. The CPU reportedly contains a ‘GFX1036’ GPU solution that operates between 1,000MHz and 2,000MHz, and the codename suggests that it is RDNA 2.
The leaks also mention AMD will initially release 4 CPU models, namely Ryzen 5 7600X, Ryzen 7 7700X, Ryzen 9 7900X, and finally Ryzen 9 7950X.
The release of the AMD Ryzen 7000-series is essential to Team Red’s ability to compete in the production of processors in the future since Intel continues to retain a dominant position, particularly after the introduction of Alder Lake restored Team Blue’s leadership.
The success of Intel’s Alder Lake series will cause AMD to lose 26 percent of its CPU market share sales in 2022. There is also a decrease in the popularity of high-end PCs, Followed by how well Intel’s Alder Lake processors are welcomed, these two factors are the cause of decline in revenue for AMD.
