Wochenrück- und Ausblick: Nach der Gamescom fällt der Vorhang vor AMD Ryzen 7000

Weekly Review & Outlook: After Gamescom, the curtain falls on AMD Ryzen 7000

Last week was dominated by Gamescom 2022. There were select presentations of new technology, but the highlight after a three-year hiatus from the trade show was the face-to-face meetings. Next week should be technical again: AMD raises the curtain on Ryzen 7000 with Zen 4 for the AM5 platform.

Again the question of Sunday.

Over and over again on Sundays, ComputerBase asks the community questions on ever-changing topics. The interest is big every week, but it was even bigger last week, and the poll shot straight up to number 1 on the article charts.

The gigantic power consumption of the world’s largest contract chipmaker, TSMC, left no other topic with a chance at the top of the news.

TSMC’s electricity consumption was estimated at around six percent of the total consumption of the island state of Taiwan in 2020. This figure is expected to more than double by 2025, with TSMC accounting for 12.5 percent of the total consumption of island energy.

Coupled with the huge water requirement, the ecological footprint of modern chip production is undoubtedly exorbitant and sparked heated discussions in the community.

AMD presents Ryzen 7000 with final Zen 4

In all probability, the coming week will be dominated by Ryzen 7000: AMD announced the final announcement of the first generation of processors based on the new Zen 4 cores for the night from Monday to Tuesday.

Now it can be assumed that all four models Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X and Ryzen 5 7600X will be available. What remains open is the exact key data and prices.

To date, AMD has spoken of “more than 15 percent more single-core performance” and “8 to 10 percent more IPC.” To what extent “more than 15 percent” a higher clock frequency compared to Ryzen 5000 increases performance, there has been only speculation so far. The latest rumors spoke of more than 20 percent, but it remains to be seen if they will be true in the end. In any case, ComputerBase will report in detail.

The next fair is the IFA

Another topic for next week is IFA 2022which will open its doors to the media from August 31 and to all interested parties in Berlin from September 2.
