AMD will ship its next-generation Ryzen 7000 processors this quarter, AMD executives confirmed Tuesday. That means Ryzen 7000 will hit the streets by the end of September.

Previously, AMD had said that Ryzen 7000 would ship in the second half of the year, but the company narrowed its release schedule in a conference call with analysts. AMD representatives indicated that the change in timing should be taken as a clarification, not as a change in the companys roadmap.

AMD made clear that Intels unexpected, catastrophic loss this quarter was mainly due to Intels execution, rather than wider industry problems, with AMD delivering record revenue for the eighth straight quarter. The good times appear ready to keep rolling, too. Chief executive Dr. Lisa Su said that AMDs fourth quarter will be highlighted by the companys new lineup of 5nm products, that were very excited about. Those include the Ryzen 7000 lineup but also Radeons next-gen RDNA3 graphics cards. AMD expects the new RDNA3 GPUs will deliver more than 50 percent generation-over-generation improvement, a combination of design as well as the 5nm process technology.

Ryzen 7000 should run well over 5GHz, using the new AM5 socket, according to previous AMD disclosures.
