AMD could launch the Ryzen 7000 CPU to disrupt Intel Raptor Lake reveal. Or is it that there might be another reason of the purportedly pushing back of the timing of the launch?
AMD Could Launch the Ryzen 7000 CPU to Disrupt Intel Raptor Lake Reveal
It was rumored that AMD is planning to have the launch of its Ryzen 7000 processors, as in hitting the shelves and being available to purchase on September 15. But however, a fresh new leak suggests that Team Red has now pushed back the set date and also that the new intended launch date coincides with the expected reveal date of the Intel raptor lake.
This is the word from various sources who have spoken to Wccftech which has beliefs that AMD has pushed back the launch of next-gen CPUs that are based on Zen 4 to late September. New rumors making the rounds now suggest that the new date is September 27 which as mentioned already is the day on which Intel has set its innovation event and is also rumored to be preparing the first glimpse at the next-gen raptor lake processors.
You should however note that for Intel, this will only be a reveal ahead of sales starting in October (in theory). For AMD on the other hand, this will be the timeframe at which the actual products will be on sale.
The Reveal for AMD Will Come At a Much Earlier Timeframe
The reveal for AMD will come at a much earlier timeframe which is at the end of this month if anything about the rumors is true which is on august 29 to be correct. The thinking here is that we will be treated to a quartet of new CPUs which are the Ryzen 9 7950X, 7900X, and 7700X plus 7600X.
Could AMD Be Running Interference With Raptor Or Could It Be Something Else Entirely?
If this is true and we would need to be very careful as to assuming anything at the moment, this would be a very bold move for AMD. By shifting the date to coincide with the launch of the raptor lake launch, in effect, it is a very direct challenge, throwing down the gauntlet.
