AMD says it is investigating performance issues with Ryzen 7000 CPUs in some games. The company has not yet found any causes and suspects that game developers should make optimizations.

AMD refers in a statement also to the introduction of its new architecture. Such a moment can sometimes cause abnormal test results or performance in computer systems, according to the company. According to the company, this was also to be expected and, according to AMD, is not a new phenomenon.

AMD’s response comes after the editors of tech website Tom’s Hardware has discovered that Ryzen 7000 CPUs made with a single CCD chiplet design in games such as Warhammer 3, Cyberpunk 2077 and F1 2022 outperformed the Ryzen 7000 CPUs which had a dual CCD chiplet design with more cores. Tom’s Hardware tested the gaming performance of Ryzen 7000 in a PC system with an Asus RTX 4090 ROG Strix OC GPU and did all driver and bios updates associated with these PC components. The tech website suspects that some games are optimized for CPUs with fewer cores and threads and that the Ryzen CPUs with fewer cores therefore performed better.

Update2:50 PM: Added info about the PC system used by Tom’s Hardware to arrive at the results.
