AMD launched the new Ryzen 7000 series CPUs in India last week, enabling gamers and creative professionals to take advantage of the latest architectural upgrades and higher performance. The CPUs were launched in the US on September 27, and are making their way to India in less than a month.
The AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs are powered by AMD’s Zen 4 architecture, bringing support for DDR5 RAM and requiring new motherboard chipsets and cooling configurations. Do note that the AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs do not support DDR4 RAM anymore, so users planning to upgrade will have to invest in the latest gen RAM and motherboard.
