AMD has made a public announcement on the performance issues in 7000 CPUs. AMD is known for its poor performance in several games, including Metro Exodus, GTA V, and Doom Eternal. The company’s response to the public, meanwhile, might not be adequate for many customers.
According to a statement released by AMD, the new Ryzen 7000 CPUs face some of the usual “new architecture” problems when first introduced to customers.
Here is AMD’s official statement:
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.
According to AMD’s advice, the issue is not only with the Ryzen 7000 CPU but also with the internal game engine for each game, the GPU, and the RAM used, implying that it is more of a system and game compatibility issue.
As a result of this cross-compatibility across engines and components, AMD’s new CPU series may perform so well. The majority of the more notable disparities in games similar to those earlier in this article occurred in fewer games evaluated. It seems reasonable that some games would not cooperate as well with one system or component as they would with another since all more current games are implanted with their own internal game engines. Another problem might be the operating system, as games made before Windows 11 may function better in that OS than in the new operating system.
Finally, it’s important to remember that each new product has some degree of imperfection, whether major or little, just because it’s brand new to the market. As the CPU becomes more widely used, it can take some time to work out any issues and conduct more improvements for more precise performance.
