Rumor machine: Every passing day brings us closer to the launch of AMD’s Zen 4 processors and RDNA 3 GPUs, which means the rumors keep coming faster and faster. In the case of the former, the latest claim relates to Team Red’s initial lineup of new processors, which may include the flagship Ryzen 7950X.
The latest rumor comes from the Twitter account of regular and reliable hardware leaker Greymon55. They claim that the first line of Zen 4-powered CPUs will include the Ryzen 7950X, 7900X, 7800X, and 7600X, with the 7700X missing. It would be a next-gen replica of the Ryzen 5000 launch lineup from November 2020.
The 7700X is still not in the first range.

Excitement around the Ryzen 7000 series increased last month when AMD confirmed that the chip it showed off at Computex running Ghostwire Tokyo at up to 5.5 GHz, believed to be a prototype of the Ryzen 9 7950X, was not overclocked and using a mainstream 280mm AIO liquid cooler.
A few weeks ago, there was more hype during AMD’s Financial Analyst Day 2022 when the company promised that Zen 4 would have a 35% performance boost over Zen 3 and that its 3D V technology -cache used in the Ryzen 7 5800X3D will be part of the new series of processors. The new processors are also said to offer increases in instructions of 8-10% per clock, over 15% single-threaded performance, and up to 125% memory bandwidth per core.
We know that Zen 4 is only a few months away. AMD still hasn’t been more specific than “this fall,” but there are plenty of rumors that September will be the month they land, with the 15th being offered as a potential date, despite the fall starting on September 22. claims Radeon 7000 series will land after AMD processors; the latest rumors say that RDNA 3 powered boards will drop between October and November.
