AMD wants to shake Intel by bringing its latest 7nm Ryzen 4000 chips, based on its Zen 2 architecture, to desktop computers.
After much success among notebooks, it is starting with chips for pre-built systems, for the time being those that leave the factory, so we will not be able to buy it independently to build our custom PC.
It is not yet possible to compare the new line with Intel’s 10th generation chips, which claims to be the fastest gaming processor in the world, but it is an important first step.
In terms of architecture, even if it is still Zen 2, they plan to launch Zen 3 before the end of the year.
The first to attack desktop computers will be the Ryzen 4000 G-Series desktop processor, with built-in Radeon graphics. The processors in this series are those shown in the table they have published in The Verge:
At the moment Intel offers a 125W TDP class chip that AMD does not yet offer, but we are talking about AMD’s 7nm Zen 2, which is the same technology as the custom processors that will use Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, so the focus on games is clear.
AMD is going strong, which means that the competition cannot relax much, and that always ends up benefiting us as consumers.
