AMD is beginning to bring its latest 7nm Ryzen 4000 chips based on its Zen 2 architecture to desktops today, following a successful rollout of the laptop version of those processors earlier this year.
AMD is starting with chips for consumer-focused prebuilt systems by OEMs, which means customers looking to use the new 4000-series chips in their own custom-built rigs will still have to wait a bit. It also means that it’ll be tougher to compare the new lineup to Intel’s own 10th Gen chips, which it boasts as being “the world’s fastest gaming processor.”
It’s also important to note that these chips are still based on the Zen 2 architecture — not the next-gen Zen 3 lineup that’s expected to debut later this year.
