At the time of Computex 2022, about a month ago, AMD gave us the complete briefing on Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 CPUs. AMD also gave some necessary specifications and a clue about performance stats. The new AM5 is also plenty; the details of the next-gen CPUs are pretty fascinating. Still, according to the official statement from AMD, we should keep off our excitement until the official release, which is expected to be in fall 2022. The fall starts with the equinox on September 22 in the US, but according to a leaked slide, AMD will probably release the Ryzen 7000 CPUs on September 15.
An exciting slide was posted by PC leaks stalwart @wxnod on Twitter. Adding a lot of important stuff to this image is the only thing we can try. The TV display shows off the most interesting and the cream of all the information showing that September 15 is the “time to sell.” The given date is not a date to confuse but an official release date.
Getting done with the launch date, all the other slides are not very informative; the event took place in China rather than Taiwan, and it was evident that simple Chinese letters were used during the descent and were also written on the slide. Without the release date overlaid, the AM5 socket slide was also shown on the TV at Computex. A Ryzen 5000 era tablecloth seems to be used by the AMD team at the presentation in China.

If legit, the leaked release date is still three months away from us, and we should noticeably keep that in mind before getting excited. Some third-party leaks are also expected to be seen by enthusiasts until the launch, and the leaks will probably be about Ryzen 7000 retail models, performance, and pricing. In addition, some essential leaks regarding the 13th Gen Intel Core processor (Raptor Lake) will also come in handy.
