AMD will have its keynote at 2PM today and early presentation slides from the keynote has apparently leaked online with slides pertaining denoting some of the SKUs key selling points.
VideoCardz has secured copies of the presentation slides from the keynote deck with one of the slides highlighting an increase in L2 cache, >15% single-thread uplift, 5Ghz+ of max boost and AI acceleration with expanded instructions.
Now an L2 cache upgrade was already expected and with the success of V-Cache, it was already known that AMD could really push their CPUs further via this technique at the expense of overclocking capabilities but it was already reported that Ryzen 7000 may not see V-cache on launch but with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D already proving it can match the Core i9-12900K in gaming performance via V-cache alone, it comes as a surprise that AMD is only saying a 15% single threaded performance uplift for Ryzen 7000.
While this may theoretically put the Ryzen 7000 CPUs close to an Alder Lake CPU, the upcoming Raptor Lake CPUs is aiming to improve on that so as of this moment, Ryzen 7000 may sit on par with Intel’s single-core supremacy but something that may not last long as AMD’s efficiency game as well as their looming master of V-cache may once again put Intel on their rear-view as they step forward to another generation.
