AMD Ryzen 7000 – release date, price, specs, and benchmarks
AMD Ryzen 7000 Overview
The new generation of Ryzen chips also represent a big shift in how AMD integrates GPUs on their chips. The days of APUs with G suffixes attached to the model names are long gone. Now, all AMD chips are getting integrated GPUs. Just like Intel chips, they’re going to come with a GPU, meaning that you don’t need an external GPU anymore to fire up your PC.
Not only that, but they’ll also be pretty good integrated GPUs, thanks to them being based on AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture rather than its older Vega architecture. You still shouldn’t expect to get a gaming powerhouse out of just these parts. They’re still going to be too weak for most serious gaming purposes, and if you’re building a proper gaming PC, you should definitely get yourself a discreet GPU, be it from Nvidia or AMD itself—but at least you’ll be able to fire up your PC and have a backup if you don’t have or need one.Intel Core i9-13900K
