AMD has not yet officially announced the Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” CPU lineup. But, it looks like AMD has leaked on its own website the existence of Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X CPUs. This might be the initial launch lineup of processors by AMD, which usually happens with the strongest Stock Keeping Units (SKUs). Check out all the details of the upcoming AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs below.

AMD is already starting to provide an indication of which models can be expected at the start of the Ryzen 7000 Series CPUs. On its official website, AMD has listed the upcoming Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X CPUs in their own product library.
For now, the website has listed only the four processors, even without any technical specifications. There are no mentions of other SKUs that are usually part of any AMD generation lineup, like the Ryzen 7 7800X or even Ryzen 3 entry-level CPUs.
In addition, as per the prominent leaker Greymon55, the Ryzen 7 7700X should not be part of the initial lineup. He has also listed the Ryzen 7 7800X which is not the part of this “leak” coming from AMD itself. At this point and with the scarcity of official information, we can only speculate.
As per some rumors and leaks so far, the Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” CPUs will have the same core and thread configurations as the current mainstream fifth-generation Ryzen lineup.
Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” CPUs
- Ryzen 9 7950X 16C/32T
- Ryzen 9 7900X 12C/24T
- Ryzen 7 7800X 8C/16T
- Ryzen 7 7700X 8C/16T
- Ryzen 5 7600X 6C/12T
The new processors of AMD will arrive on a new platform. After using the socket in the PGA format, in which the pins go into the processor, for so many years, AMD will adopt the LGA socket (1178 pins) with the AM5, in which the pins go into the socket itself, a format adopted and used by Intel for many years.
It is already known that the Ryzen 7000 will be based on the new Zen 4 architecture, which will come in three different variants: Zen 4 3D V-Cache, workstation-oriented Zen 4c, in addition to the standard Zen 4.
AMD guarantees that Zen 4 CPUs will have up to a 10% increase in IPC (instructions per clock), 15% performance gain in a single thread, up to 125% more memory bandwidth per core, and support for AVX-512 and AI-oriented instructions compared to Zen 3.
These processors are expected to arrive starting in September, as well as the next-generation Intel Raptor Lake, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40xx GPUs, and the next-generation Radeon RX 7000.
