AMD Postpones Ryzen 7000 Series Launch By Two Weeks to September 27

AMD had announced that the company would announce its next-gen Ryzen 7000 series in the last week of August. Earlier leaks claimed the Rapahel series would be available in mid-September. However, new rumors are suggesting a 2-week delay. 

According to MyDrivers, AMD will launch the Ryzen 7000 series on September 27th.

Intel is also reportedly introducing its 13th-gen Raptor Lake CPUs on the same day during the Innovation event.   

AMD will announce the next-gen range featuring Zen 4 architecture and RDNA2 graphics on August 29th(ET). Neither AMD nor Intel have confirmed the speculated launch/announcement date. 

AMD’s official website still states August 29th as the announcement date, so this schedule remains unchanged.  

Here’s the timeline for Ryzen 7000 series: 

  • AMD Ryzen 7000 Announcement – August 29th, 8:00 PM ET/ August 30th IST 
  • AMD Ryzen 7000 Product Launch – September 27th 

AMD is expected to introduce four Ryzen 7000 SKUs featuring 16 Zen 4 cores. A Canadian retailer PC Canada has listed the four SKUs along with their pricing.
