AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs could be a huge generational leap for boost speeds

AMD’s next-gen flagship Zen 4 processor could be clocked much faster than its predecessor, potentially being capable of boosting up to 5.7GHz, and other CPUs in the Ryzen 7000 range will receive a similar level of turbocharging, if the latest from the rumor mill is right.

As VideoCardz (opens in new tab) reports, this actually comes from two different sources, Wccftech (opens in new tab) and Expreview (opens in new tab) on Bilibili (a Chinese video sharing site), so we need to exercise more caution than normal here, given that we wouldn’t rate these as the most reliable sources of leakage. That said, the purported specs match up across both sources, so that lends a bit more weight to the rumors here.
