CEO Su announced that the highly anticipated Zen 4 CPUs and AM5 motherboards would be released in the current quarter, which concludes on September 30.

"We're on track to launch our all-new 5nm Ryzen 7000 desktop processors and AM5 platforms later this quarter with outstanding gaming and content creation capabilities," Su said.

AMD is expected to release its next-gen processors in the first week of September (or the end of August) before launching them on September 15, so it appears AMD may launch its chips somewhat earlier than initially planned. The Zen 3-powered Ryzen 5000 CPUs were announced in October 2020 and launched the following month.

The pricing of the Ryzen 7000 processors is still unknown. Although it should be taken with a grain of salt, Paul from Youtube channel RedGamingTech (via NoteBookCheck) has provided some statistics, although even he admits these may be different before their launch, particularly if Intel removes some pricing surprises with Raptor Lake.

The September launch date matches up with previous rumors of a Zen 4 coming in the same month. It was also claimed that the Ryzen 7000 chips would be based on the Ryzen 5000 series but would be omitted from the Ryzen 7 7700X in the initial launch lineup.

AMD claims that the Zen 4 will have an impressive 35% performance increase over Zen 3 and improved clock speeds. It was tested at Computex, believed to be a prototype of the Ryzen 9 7950X, which later confirmed the CPU was not overclocked. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D's 3D V-cache technology would also be used for the next generation of chips.

Su claims that its RDNA 3 Navi 3x graphics cards and 5nm Epyc Genoa server chips will be released later this year.

AMD's financial performance was up to expectations and had an excellent quarter, with revenue rising by 70% year over year, while non-GAAP net income rising by $1.7 billion, compared to $778 million a year earlier. As a result, AMD had briefly become more valuable than Intel, but Chipzilla now has a bigger market cap.

AMD has taken its largest processor share to date in Steam, with the Zen 4 expected to take even higher.
