    AMD Issues Performance Advisory for Ryzen 7000 Series Processors

    New products, new problems.

    AMD has issued a new advisory regarding the performance characteristics of its new Ryzen 7000 processors, saying that it had received reports of unexpected performance deltas in some games — as we experienced firsthand in our testing with the Ryzen 7000 processors and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 — and will work with game devs to optimize for its new architecture.

    Additionally, despite unsubstantiated reports of performance problems with Windows 11, the company hasn't seen any unexpected results when comparing Windows 10 and Windows 11. Here's AMD's full advisory:

    "We have been made aware of reports of unexpected performance deltas in certain games with AMD Ryzen desktop processors as well as performance variances between Windows 11 and Windows 10 in certain game titles. We are currently investigating but based on testing to date have not observed a material difference in game performance between OS versions across a variety of operating scenarios and game titles.

    "Many factors affect gaming performance, including the game engine, CPU architecture, GPU selection and memory choices. As new architectures enter the market, we often observe performance anomalies which must be addressed by the component vendor or the game publisher. This is not a new phenomenon nor is it unexpected.

    "As we have done since the introduction of Ryzen, when these performance anomalies are brought to light we will use them to steer our partner engagements with game developers and ecosystem hardware partners to implement optimizations that eliminate the variations."

    The advisory mirrors what the company told us after we shared our own results that exposed a few new performance inversions with the Ryzen 7000 processors. These inversions, wherein single-CCD (chiplet) Ryzen models outperformed dual-CCD models that have more cores, occurred in three of the eight game titles we tested with the new RTX 4090 GPUs: Warhammer 3, Cyberpunk 2077, and F1 2022. We've also heard of similar trends with The Riftbreaker and Metro Exodus.
