AMD is reportedly very close to launching its next-gen CPU architecture. We knew it was coming in “the fall” but weren’t sure of the exact dates. Now those dates are confirmed, according to a new Wccftech report.

Later this month, AMD will host a briefing on its upcoming technology. It’s unclear if it will be just for media, or if it will be live-streamed (we assume it’s the latter, but you never know). Two weeks later it will lift the NDA on benchmarks. Then, two days after that on Sept.15, its new CPUs (and their accompanying motherboards) will officially go on sale. AMD announced a similar event previously for August 5th. The signup page for that event is still live, but it seems like it just got pushed back for some reason.

The event will likely be similar to the previously planned shindig. AMD will put on a dog and pony show for its Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” CPUs first. Next, some of its motherboard partners will show off their X670 and X670 Extreme motherboards. It had previously scheduled ASRock, Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte, and MSI to speak. AMD has also already listed the names of the motherboards that will be featured (below).

At Computex AMD listed what it calls “flagship” AM5 boards.

We also have a pretty good idea of which CPUs it will launch. Previously AMD uploaded the name of four Zen 4 CPUs to its website’s resource library. The CPUs listed include the Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X. They are anticipated to be a 16C/32T, 12C/24T, 8C/16T, and 6C/12T parts.

The initial unveiling is timed to take place at 8 AM Taiwan time on the 30th, which will be 8 PM EST in the US. The embargoes for reviews and sales will be on US East Coast time, however. Benchmarks will drop Sept. 13 at 9 AM EST. Zen 4 products will then go on sale on Sept. 15, also at 9 AM EST, according to Wccftech.

Although the upper-midrange CPUs will likely be part of the ceremony, we expect AMD to showcase the peak performance of its high-end CPUs on X670 Extreme motherboards. There should be ample overclocking demonstrations as well. AMD has already talked up overclocking quite a bit over the last few months. Not only on the CPU, but for memory as well with EXPO, or EXtended Profiles for Overclocking. This should be similar to Intel’s XMP.

AMD is expected to be aiming for the moon with Zen 4, as there are reports it will support some of the fastest DDR5 memory available. AMD also previously demoed Zen 4 running at 5.5GHz at Computex. Intel’s upcoming Raptor Lake has also been spotted running a dual-core boost clock of 5.8GHz, so this battle is going to be a spicy one.
