AMD's Ryzen 7000 series CPUs will be the next step for the company as it steps into the future of superpower chips to power devices worldwide. Earlier on August 30, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su revealed the 7000 series and more, as fans had been anticipating over the past few months.

The new CPU will enhance performance even more than their previous renditions. AMD has also revealed a fresh line of chipsets to accommodate them, and has increased their already robust line of 500+ motherboards in the market.

The company has been a leading name in the hardware industry over the years, providing stiff competition to Intel. It has its line of both flagship and budget offerings when it comes to processors and more. With the new product, AMD hopes to go the extra mile in providing users with more options and greater device flexibility.

AMD's B650E will efficiently power up the new Ryzen 7000 series CPUs

Earlier in the evening, AMD revealed not only the Ryzen 7000 but the B650E chipset, which will power the processor. It has been made to keep up with the capabilities and prowess of the device in question. Prior to this, the company had already revealed the X670, X670E, and the standard edition of the B650 this year.

The B650E is the Extreme edition of the chip, which was announced earlier in the year. It will have the advantage of PCIe 5.0 lanes in at least one of the M2 slots. In addition, there's a likely scenario for the chipset having optional PCIe 5.0 support for one of the graphics slots.

Overall, tonight's announcement will offer a far better choice for those looking for an affordable option. Thanks to the additional support, the B650E will offer the same productivity but at a cheaper cost.

The PCIe 5.0 offers better performance but comes at a higher cost. The PCB requirement goes higher to ensure the signal integrity isn't compromised. This change from its previous rendition would traditionally require costlier controller sets. Thankfully, the Extreme chipset will help avoid that, and users can pick from either AMD's X6570 or X670E.


Based on what AMD has announced, the Ryzen 7000 will be launched on September 27 this year. Its release will coincide with that of the X670E and X670 chipsets. The B650 and B650E will be launched next month, although the specific date hasn't been announced.

Based on the public domain information, the company will likely keep the original prices with the Ryzen 7000 series. The cheapest offering will be the Ryzen 5 7600EX, which will be offered at $299, while the top-end model will set you back by $799.

It's hard to predict what the pricing of the motherboards will be at this point. The price of the Ryzen 7000 series comes on the back of leaks and it has now been officially confirmed. Those looking to purchase one of these CPUs will no doubt be eagerly awaiting to find out the company's pricing strategy for its upcoming motherboards.
