There's still much to learn about the Ryzen 7000 series. The official announcement is expected to happen later this month, but while we wait for it, leakers have shared what they claim to be the specifications of AMD's next-gen Ryzen CPUs.

These CPUs will come with up to 16 Zen 4 cores capable of reaching 5.7GHz boost clock speeds and packing up to 80MB of cache (L3+ L2). As per the rumours, the maximum TDP of the upcoming chips is 170W.
The following table shows the rumoured specifications for these SKUs in more detail:
|CPU||Cores/ Threads||Base Clock||Boost Clock||Cache (L3+ L2)||TDP|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7950X||16/32||4.5 GHz||5.7 GHz||80 MB (64+16)||170W|
|AMD Ryzen 9 7900X||12/24||4.7 GHz||5.6 GHz||76 MB (64+12)||170W|

AMD has already introduced the first X670 and X670E motherboards, so all that's left is for AMD to announce the Ryzen 7000 series. Recent rumours claim we'll see these CPUs announced on the 29th of August, with retail availability arriving in mid-September.
