All the news from AMD at CES 2023

AMD has introduced various new Ryzen processors throughout its presentation at CES 2023, together with the extremely anticipated Ryzen 7000X3D processors with which the corporate will attempt to compete towards Intel’s thirteenth era desktop CPUs to as soon as once more be topped queen of efficiency. in video video games.

The concept is fairly simple: take the 3D V-Cache know-how that made the previous-gen Ryzen 7 5800X3D so quick, to the purpose the place it rivaled later-gen chips, and couple it with the sooner Ryzen 7000 processors. The result’s three new chips: the Ryzen 7800X3D, the Ryzen 7900X3D, and the Ryzen 7950X3D. All three have a a lot bigger cache dimension – 104MB of L2 and L3 cache on Ryzen 7 and as much as 144MB on Ryzen 9 – to reduce the time the CPU spends ready for information to be copied to the cache, growing significantly the efficiency in some video games.

In AMD-provided benchmarks the 7800X3D was between 10% and 25% sooner than the 5800X3D at 1080p in titles like Cyberpunk 2077, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Borderlands 3 or F1 22. That is barely lower than what I anticipated, contemplating that the 7800X3D additionally makes use of DDR5 RAM as a substitute of the DDR4 that the 5800X3D used. Maybe probably the most attention-grabbing comparability is between the 7950X3D and Intel’s 13900K, the place AMD guarantees a 9-24% enchancment in video games like Watch Canines Legion, Dota 2, Rainbow Six Siege, or Horizon Zero Daybreak.

CPU design Increase Base L3 cache TDP Worth
Ryzen 9 7950X3D Zen 4 16C/32T 5.7GHz 4.2GHz 128MB 170W TBA
Ryzen 9 7950X Zen 4 16C/32T 5.7GHz 4.5GHz 64MB 170W $699
Ryzen 9 7900X3D Zen 4 12C/24T 5.6GHz 4.4GHz 132MB 120W TBA
Ryzen 9 7900X Zen 4 12C/24T 5.6GHz 4.7GHz 64MB 170W $549
Ryzen 9 7900 Zen 4 12C/24T 5.3GHz TBA 64MB 65W $429
Ryzen 7 7800X3D Zen 4 8C/16T 5GHz 4.XGHz 96MB 120W TBA
Ryzen 7 7700X Zen 4 8C/16T 5.4GHz 4.5GHz 32MB 105W $399
Ryzen 7 7700 Zen 4 8C/16T 5.3GHz TBA 32MB 65W $329
Ryzen 5 7600X Zen 4 6C/12T 5.3GHz 4.7GHz 32MB 105W $299
Ryzen 5 7600 Zen 4 6C/12T 5.1GHz TBA 32MB 65W $229

These X3D chips will undoubtedly be costly, and throughout the announcement AMD made no point out of pricing (though there was a small notation within the presentation indicating that costs got in {dollars}, which suggests they had been in all probability erased in the previous couple of years). second). There’s additionally no particular date, solely that they may arrive in February.

In any case, they’re additionally going to launch a number of cheaper Ryzen 7000 CPUs available on the market. Particularly, there are three “non-X” variations that can ship on January 10, together with the $429 Ryzen 9 7900, the $329 Ryzen 7 7700, and the $229 Ryzen 5 7600. These CPUs additionally include a CPU fan, with the Wraith Prism with RGB included within the Ryzen 7/9 chips and the Wraith Stealth within the Ryzen 5, a logical resolution in elements that eat much less power and, subsequently, generate much less warmth. We have now beforehand seen minimal variations (between one and three %) between X and non-X elements (for instance, between the Ryzen 5600 and the Ryzen 5600X), which can make the Ryzen 7000 a simple promote for shoppers. – even if the excessive costs of motherboards and DDR5 reminiscence will proceed to have an effect on early adoption.

AMD claims that the Ryzen 7040 is the primary x86 chip with devoted {hardware} for AI.

AMD has additionally detailed its new 4nm Ryzen Cell 7040 processors for ultra-slim notebooks, which embrace the primary {hardware} implementation for AI acceleration following the corporate’s current buy of Xilinx. These CPUs are based mostly on the Zen 4 structure and embrace RDNA 3 graphics, so they need to be fairly highly effective regardless of their modest energy consumption, and able to rivaling Apple’s M2 and Intel’s low-power twelfth-generation cell processors.

The CEO of AMD, Lisa Su, additionally introduced cell processors extra centered on gaming, the 7045HX vary, through which the chiplet design is launched for the primary time in laptops with as much as sixteen Zen 4 cores, thirty-two threads and RDNA 2 graphics. AMD talks about an enchancment of as much as 41% in CS:GO over the outdated 6900HX, and enhancements of 17%, 18% and 29% in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Watch Canines Legion and Far Cry 6, respectively.

These new CPUs will likely be accompanied by the brand new 7600M XT cell GPUs, which – in line with AMD’s assessments – outperform the RTX 3060 for laptops by round twenty %. After all, we all know that the efficiency and energy consumption of laptop computer GPUs can differ considerably, and Nvidia has additionally introduced its 40 collection of laptop computer GPUs, in order that comparability is a bit ineffective proper now. We’ll know extra when these laptops begin hitting shops beginning February 23.

It is an thrilling time for AMD, all in all, and we’re actually wanting ahead to placing all these new elements to the check, particularly the desktop processors. What do you consider AMD’s presentation? Inform us within the feedback.
