AMD Releases New Ryzen CPUs

AMD launches two new Ryzen desktop processors based on its current-generation Zen 4 microarchitecture, but there’s a catch.

AMD Releases New Ryzen CPUs


  • AMD launched new Ryzen processors, Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F, on April 1.
  • The chips are available globally, but currently only for OEMs and system integrators.
  • Next-gen Zen 5 CPUs are expected in the second half of 2024, promising significant performance gains.

AMD has launched two new Ryzen desktop processors globally, but the chips will only be offered to a specific market segment, according to reports. The semiconductor giant is scheduled to release its next-generation CPUs in 2024.

During the AI PC Innovation Summit that was held in Beijing on March 21, AMD revealed the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F. These two processors, which lack integrated graphics like other SKUs with an F suffix, were initially only available in China, but AMD has apparently started to supply them worldwide.

Dedicated product pages for the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F on AMD's website showed that the two chips launched on April 1 and have become available globally. However, these CPUs can only be obtained by OEMs like pre-built computer makers, media outlet Wccftech reported. AMD made a similar move when it released the Ryzen 5 7500F worldwide through system integrators. It should be noted that the Ryzen 5 7500F ended up becoming available as a standalone CPU in the US and Europe.

The Ryzen 7 8700F, with its 8 cores and 16 threads, can boost up to 5 GHz. Meanwhile, the 6-core, 12-thread Ryzen 5 8400F peaks at 4.7 GHz. Both CPUs have a default TDP of 65 watts and are based on AMD's current-generation Zen 4 microarchitecture, which also powers some of AMD's best gaming CPUs like the Ryzen 9 7950X3D. The product pages for the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F do not mention prices, but the former is expected to be cheaper than the Ryzen 7 8700G that it ly resembles.

New AMD Ryzen CPUs April 2024

  • CPUs: Ryzen 7 8700F, Ryzen 5 8400F
  • Release: April 1, 2024

AMD confirmed in a previous earnings call that processors based on its next-generation Zen 5 microarchitecture are scheduled to reach the consumer market during the second half of 2024. While company president and CEO Lisa Su has told investors that these chips will deliver significant performance and efficiency gains, AMD has yet to officially dis any details regarding them. Hardware industry leakers, however, have claimed that the upcoming Zen 5 CPUs will be 40% faster than their Zen 4 counterparts in specific workloads.

Leakers also said that Zen 5 processors have already entered mass production, specifically the Granite Ridge series of desktop chips. Aside from Granite Ridge, AMD's Zen 5 will introduce new offerings for the light mobile, extreme mobile, server, and enthusiast/workstation markets that are codenamed Strix Point, Dragon Range, Turin, and Shimada Peak, respectively.
