THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING.

FROM THIS NEW PLATFORM, YOU CAN SEE THE FUTURE

Build your next rig with an AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processor and PRIME B650-PLUS to experience advanced performance. With up to 16 “Zen 4” cores and 32 threads, boost clocks of up to 5.7GHz, and 80MB cache, the AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series keeps you ahead of the game.1

You’ll also gain access to new features for gamers with AMD Socket AM5, from the speed of DDR5 memory to the increased bandwidth of PCIe® 5.0. AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processors and AMD socket AM5 motherboards are unlocked for overclocking to personalize your experience. Gain even more performance when you overclock your DDR5 memory with AMD EXPO™ technology.2

  1. Max boost for AMD Ryzen processors is the maximum frequency achievable by a single core on the processor running a bursty single-threaded workload. Max boost will vary based on several factors, including, but not limited to: thermal paste; system cooling; motherboard design and BIOS; the latest AMD chipset driver; and the latest OS updates. GD-150
  2. Overclocking and/or undervolting AMD processors and memory, including without limitation, altering clock frequencies / multipliers or memory timing / voltage, to operate outside of AMD’s published specifications will void any applicable AMD product warranty, even when enabled via AMD hardware and/or software. This may also void warranties offered by the system manufacturer or retailer. Users assume all risks and liabilities that may arise out of overclocking and/or undervolting AMD processors, including, without limitation, failure of or damage to hardware, reduced system performance and/or data loss, corruption or vulnerability.
