AMD will be hosting a live stream on August 29 at 7PM ET, where it teases "together we advance_PCs" and we all know what that means: Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4" processors, the new AM5 socket and platform, X670E and X670 motherboards galore, and DDR5 EXPO memory overclocking technology.

AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su will be there, as too will CTO and EVP Mark Papermaster and other AMD executives that will be on the YouTube live stream to talk about everything Zen 4, the new AM5 platform, and new technologies like DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 connectivity... all of which will advance PCs.

24 hours ago, we reported: we're now reportedly looking at a September 27 release for Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4", which will see AMD meeting Intel on the same day as their new 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" CPU launch. That will make for one of the biggest days in technology history: next-gen AMD and Intel CPUs and motherboards... all in the same week? I can't wait.
