AMD’s first 7nm Ryzen 4000 desktop chips bring the fight to Intel


AMD is starting to bring its latest 7nm Ryzen 4000 chips based on its Zen 2 architecture to desktops today, following the successful rollout of the portable version of those processors earlier this year.

AMD is starting with chips for prebuilt consumer-centric systems from OEMs, which means customers looking to use the new 4000 series chips in their own custom platforms will have to wait a bit longer. It also means that it will be more difficult to compare the new lineup to Intel’s own 10th generation chips, which it claims to be “the fastest gaming processor in the world.”

It’s also important to note that these chips are still based on the Zen 2 architecture – not the next-gen Zen 3 line that is expected to debut later this year.

Specifically, the first line of desktop chips that AMD offers is the Ryzen 4000 G-Series desktop processor, with integrated Radeon graphics that AMD says will deliver dramatically improved gaming performance on newer APUs, even without a card. discrete (although you can obviously pair them with a discrete GPU, assuming your OEM offers one).
