When AMD's CEO confirmed we would get Zen 4 processors later this year, most assumed they would arrive sometime in the fourth quarter. However, a new report suggests launches may come sooner than expected, with the first Ryzen Zen 4 desktop processors possibly debuting in Q3.
According to Greymon55, AMD will launch the Ryzen 7000 desktop processors before September 22, contradicting earlier rumours that the Zen 4 processors would debut in Q4 2022.
Earlier than that.

AMD Ryzen 7000 series processors will be the red team's first platform using the LGA1718 (AM5) socket. These processors will launch alongside AMD 600-series chipset motherboards, which will support DDR5 memory and PCIe 5.0 devices.
As shown in a Halo Infinite gameplay demo during CES 2022, the Ryzen 7000 series CPUs are expected to reach 5.0GHz boost clocks. In addition, rumours claimed there would be SKUs with up to 16x cores and 32x threads and RDNA2-based integrated graphics. Like the freshly announced Ryzen 7 5800X3D, we expect AMD will also use 3D V-cache on the upcoming Ryzen 7000 series desktop chips.

KitGuru says: Are you planning on upgrading your system once AMD releases the Ryzen 7000 desktop processors, or would you rather wait for Intel to launch Raptor Lake before deciding on an upgrade?
