AMD launches what it claims is “the world’s fastest processor for gaming” in September

At a time of rocketing PC sales, Advanced Micro Devices Inc. launched its new generation of gaming cards and motherboards for fall late Monday – but boasting of having the world’s fastest gaming card could get some attention and generate sales.

“The Ryzen 7000 series is absolutely the world’s first desktop processor in 5 nanometers,” AMD AMD,
Chief Executive Lisa Su told an audience in a presentation in Austin, Texas that was also streamed on YouTube. “With a Zen 4 core, it’s the fastest processor in the world for gaming and content creation.”

“And with our new AM5 platform, it really brings the latest technologies in I/O and storage. It also brings our commitment to multi-year roadmap support to 2025 and beyond,” said Su.

AMD said the gaming cards will be available starting September 27th.

The top-end Ryzen 9 7950x is $699, the Ryzen 9 7900x is $549, the Ryzen 7 7700x is $399, and the budget Ryzen 5 7600x is $299.

The last time AMD announced a new generation of products was with 7-nanometer chips in 2020, just before the COVID-19 pandemic became official.

AMD will also launch its AM5 socket platform with four new motherboards: the AMD X670 Extreme and X670 for the best connectivity for those who like to overclock, the AMD B650E for performance users, and the B650 for mainstream users.

The motherboards start at $125, with the X670 chips coming out in September and the B650E and B650 in October.

In early August, AMD proved to be the most resilient of the major chipmakers during earnings season. With competitors like Intel Corp. INTC,
and Nvidia Corp. NVDA,
AMD slashed its revenue forecasts by the billions, getting off relatively lightly with a forecast revenue range that mostly fell below Wall Street’s estimate of $6.84 billion.
