AMD has confirmed techy’s hardware 80 systems based on its mysterious 4700S desktop suite will be on the market, and the official sales of the first batch of systems are obviously already in progress.
The story of the AMD 4700S desktop kit with chips, motherboard, memory, and heat sink is strange.Almost all the details about AMD’s mysterious desktop suite come from Product list and leaks Before AMD even listed the chip on its website, the company launched the 4700S without any normal communication with the media through briefings or press releases.
We followed up with AMD on the 4700S desktop kit. The chip manufacturer revealed that more than 80 systems built around its 4700S kit will be available:
“We want to see more than 80 designs coming to the market from our SI [System Integrator] Partners start on June 24. The prices of these systems will be announced by our SI partners in due course. “-AMD representative.
The first 4700S-based systems are already available on the open market for free, although only in certain regions of Asia. Therefore, pictures of the bare 4700S chip have surfaced.
Given the chip of the 7nm 4700S desktop kit Visually matches PS5’s “Ariel” SoC, With 8 Zen 2 cores and 16 threads, and using GDDR6 (8GB or 16GB) instead of DDR4 memory in modern PCs, it is almost certain that it matches the chip in PS5 very well, despite the disabled RDNA2 integrated graphics engine and possible Change the CPU clock speed. This leads people to speculate that the 4700S is just a defective PS5 SoC that AMD has repurposed.
It may also be a close relative of Ariel, but with Adjustments to various IP blocks, Such as memory controller, interrupt handler, system management controller and hardware accelerated video encoding/decoding block. This means that the 4700S is its own semi-custom design, which utilizes some of the features in AMD’s other SoCs (such as Ariel), but not all of them.
This is actually quite mysterious, so we asked AMD 4700S if it was built with the same SoC as the PS5:
“The AMD 4700S Desktop Kit is its unique solution designed to meet the mainstream market’s demand for powerful, high-core count performance-ideal for multitasking, productivity, and lightweight 3D workflows.”-AMD representative.
AMD’s response is actually noncommittal because it refers to the desktop kit rather than the chip itself. We have asked for more details, but the company is tight-lipped about the new system and obviously avoids using any Ryzen brand around the kit, so we won’t hold our breath to get a clear answer.
In both cases, we have seen these systems appearing at retailers in the Asian market. The retail price is usually between ~320 and ~700 US dollars (converted to US dollars), but these systems have unique decorations. Such as SSD, GPU, PSU and chassis will ultimately affect pricing.
AMD has confirmed that these systems, which are obviously not for cutting-edge game consoles, will be available soon, but it has not yet stated whether we will see them at US retailers anytime soon.
