AMD has confirmed that it will be hosting the unveiling of its Ryzen 7000 "Zen 4" CPUs, AM5 platform & DDR5 EXPO memory on the 29th of August. The event will be live-streamed & will include presentations from AMD's CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, CTO, Mark Papermaster, and other execs.
AMD Ryzen 7000 "Zen 4" CPU, AM5 Platform & DDR5 EXPO Memory To Be Unveiled During 29th August Livestream
For those who have been following our reports, this confirmation wouldn't come as a surprise since we already reported the event and launch dates for the said products. As per our previous info, the AMD schedule is as follows:
- Product announcement: August 29, 2022 at 7:00PM ET / August 30, 2022 at 1:00AM CET / 7:00AM TW
- Press embargo: September 13, 2022 at 9AM ET / 3PM CET / 9PM TW
- Sales embargo: September 15, 2022 at 9AM ET / 3PM CET / 9PM TW
According to the presser released by AMD, the event will focus on next-generation PC products, mainly the AMD Ryzen 7000 "Zen 4" CPUs, the all-new AM5 platform, and the DDR5 EXPO DRAM which are going to play just as big of a role as the CPUs themselves. Now there's some confusion surrounding the event so we will make it clear. The event will solely focus on the specs, prices & sales launch data of the upcoming products. The products will be announced but they won't go on sale until September.
Today, AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) announced “together we advance_PCs”, a livestream premiere to unveil next generation AMD PC products. Chair and CEO Dr. Lisa Su, CTO Mark Papermaster, and other AMD executives will present details on the latest "Zen 4" architecture that powers upcoming AMD Ryzen™ processors and the all new AM5 platform built around the latest technologies including DDR5 and PCIe5, all designed to drive a new era of performance desktop PCs.
Join us on Aug. 29 at 7 p.m. ET for “together we advance_PCs,” a livestream premiere to unveil the next generation AMD PC products.

As per our previous report, the AMD Ryzen 7000 "Zen 4" Desktop CPUs were aiming a launch on the 15th of September which is also something that motherboard vendors pointed out however, the dates have possibly seen a change, and the sales have been moved to 27th of September, a whole month after the unveiling later this month.
Now nothing is set in stone but with AMD confirming one of their previous dates that we reported first earlier this month, it may be entirely possible that the company sticks to its original launch plan which would be great for consumers or they can initiate sales the same day as Intel unveils their 13th Gen Raptor Lake Desktop CPUs. That is something that only AMD can confirm during the event itself.
Both the 15th September and the 27th September dates were reported by us first, so in the case AMD decides to proceed with sales on either of the two dates, it will be a confirmation of what we reported.
