AMD’s next-gen processors will be led by four Ryzen 7000 CPUs, the latest being from the vine.
The claim by one of Twitter’s most well-known hardware rumor sellers, Greymon55, is that AMD is planning to initially release the Ryzen 7950X, 7900X, 7800X, and 7600X, with other models to follow later.

The leaker further notes that the 7700X will not be in the initial batch of Zen 4 CPUs hitting shelves. Take this with the usual sense of skepticism surrounding any rumor.
There’s also another Zen 4 leak floating around this morning, and that claims the release date for the Ryzen 7000 processors will be September 15th. Specifically, this consists of an image purportedly showing an AMD presentation in China, where that date is displayed on a slide – but we have serious doubts as to whether this is genuine.
Mainly because it comes from a tweet (opens in new tab) delivered by an unknown source (and we can’t verify what the text says anyway, but there were certainly doubts raised by other denizens of Twitter).
Review: Let’s hope there’s no major lag for the 7700X
It’s safer to dismiss the September 15 release date as a hoax, and while we don’t know for sure, we certainly wouldn’t put any stock on it – by any means – for now.
That said, it lines up with what we’ve already heard on the vine, namely that the Ryzen 7000 processors will launch in September, a rumor that has popped up several times in fact – so don’t rule out that possibility, by any means. At the moment, this month seems like the most likely release date for AMD’s next-gen Ryzen processors.
It wouldn’t be surprising if the four models mentioned above were the first out of the gate – especially since that’s exactly what happened with the current Ryzen 5000 chips. remember, the 5700X didn’t make it to A lot of later – not until a few months ago, actually.
Let’s hope the wait isn’t that long for the 7700X, and we don’t imagine it will be, as production issues and supply chain concerns are easing (and the situation is predicted to improve further as 2022 rolls around). rolls, fingers crossed that nothing changes in this regard).
The 5700X/7700X CPU is an important part of the Ryzen range because it is an 8-core (16-thread) chip like the 5800X/7800X, but the former offers a more affordable option compared to the latter. In that regard, it’s the best value proposition for many people who want an 8-core processor instead of a 6-core model (and of course, hexa-core is starting to look less and less future-proof with the passing of time).
