The registration page provides more information about the upcoming event. It covers who will be in attendance, the topics in discussion, and a summary of what to expect. Speakers from ASRock, MSI, Biostar, Asus, and Gigabyte will each make an appearance. And there’s something more specific that points to the launch of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Series in August. The summary for the event reads “Supporting the recent launch of AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors”, which definitely sounds a bit suspicious.
This is by no means confirmation that the Ryzen 7000 Series will launch so soon. There’s also still a chance that the description of the event is misleading. AMD hasn’t officially said anything about this event just yet, which would definitely make a Ryzen 7000 Series launch feel like a surprise announcement.
It’s fair to say that things are looking a little unclear right now. Additionally, this information contradicts some other rumors that suggested AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Series launch would take place in September.
AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Series is close
The launch of AMD’s 7000 CPUs is relatively close no matter which way you look at it. We’ve been awaiting more information about the upcoming AM5 motherboards since May, so it’s good to know that we’ll be getting that on August 5 at least. But it’s fair to say that the imminent Ryzen 7000 Series is the real focus.
AMD has already shown that its top Zen 4 chips reach 5.5GHz and offer about a 15% single threaded performance uplift. Multi-threaded performance for top models also beats the Intel 16-core 12900K by around 30%. We should see a respectable performance jump in games as a result, further emphasizing the need for better graphics cards to remove bottlenecks and push better overall system performance.
Luckily we shouldn’t need to wait long for an answer. Whether this is indeed a hint at a Ryzen 7000 Series launch in August or something that we’re looking into too much is something we’ll find out soon.
