About the AMD Ryzen 7 7800X Processor
Zen 4 Architecture
More efficient 5nm chiplets will provide up to 16 of the new Zen 4 cores – replacing the Zen 3 cores that currently power Ryzen 5000 processors. The biggest news for the 5nm Zen 4 chips comes as a 15% or better improvement in single-threaded performance over the previous-gen Zen 3-powered Ryzen 5000 processors and IPC improvement of about 8 to 10% is expected.
The all-new I/O die comes with the 6nm process and houses the PCIe 5.0 and DDR5 memory controllers along with the RDNA 2 graphics engine. The RDNA 2 engine supports up to four display outputs, including HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 2 interfaces.
The Ryzen 7000 chips support up to 24 lanes of the PCIe 5.0 interface directly from the socket and DDR5 memory only. DDR5 opens up the potential for faster clock rates, reduced power consumption, and latency.
The new CPUs’ PCIe 5.0 support will also open up potential for faster storage and graphics cards, as well as improved power delivery. PCIe 5.0 SSDs are likely to be much faster than even the best SSDs that use the PCIe 4.0 interface.
Despite the entirely different LGA1718 socket interface (1718 pins), the AM5 socket will still support AM4 coolers.
The AM5 platform will be a breath of fresh air since it provides scope for many new technologies. Expect more and faster ports, more overclocking headroom, a higher PPT limit (230W vs 142W), and more.
