The first four AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs in the lineup—the Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X—have their rumored specifications revealed just in time for AMD Ryzen 7000.
With extremely high clock speeds, enormous cache sizes, and a performance boost that might reach up to 35%, the specifications definitely paint a favourable picture of the impending Zen 4 series. The CPUs are said to only support undervolting, which is unfortunate news for overclocking fans.
Multiple sites, including one, which claims its own anonymous sources, and @9550pro on Twitter, have reported on the purported specifications for the first four AMD Ryzen 7000 processors.
As long as AMD itself announces the big news, we won’t know for sure, but given that the reports are consistent across the board, it could be time to get excited.
According to earlier projections, it appears that AMD will only introduce four CPUs at first, with the remainder of the portfolio following later.
According to the source, we can anticipate an increase in instructions per cycle (IPC) of up to 10% as well as performance increases of about 15% for single-threaded processes and 35% for multi-threaded ones.
AMD is also actively pursuing performance-per-watt, promising an increase of up to 25% in that area. If Intel Raptor Lake is as power-hungry as rumors suggest, this could be a smart move for AMD.
A substantially larger L2 cache, support for PCIe Gen 5.0, and DDR5 RAM will also be provided by AMD in addition to changes made to the core counts and rates (and only DDR5 RAM). Let’s now examine the specifications we may anticipate for the upcoming AMD processors.
Although the number of cores hasn’t increased since the launch of the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, the frequencies have. According to reports, the CPU has 16 cores, 32 threads, and a base rate of 4.5GHz that can be increased to 5.7GHz.
Although the power requirements are met, they may still be worse. According to reports, this model will have a TDP of 170 watts and a package power tracking (PPT) of 230 watts. The L3 cache alone takes up 64MB of the enormous cache’s combined total of 80MB.
The Ryzen 9 7900X follows with somewhat weaker specifications but is still more than capable of powering a top-tier gaming system.
With a base rate of 4.7GHz and a boost clock that can reach 5.6GHz, the processor has 12 cores and 24 threads. The TDP stays at 170 watts despite the cache shrinking to 76MB.
The Ryzen 7 7700X and the Ryzen 5 7600X are two midrange Ryzen CPUs that are listed below. The former has just 105 watts of TDP and has 8 cores and 16 threads, a 4.5GHz base frequency with a boost up to 5.4GHz. The cache size was reduced to 40MB. There haven’t yet been any rumors about a potential Ryzen 7 7800X.
The Ryzen 5 7600X, which has just six cores and 12 threads, is the last option. With a 4.7GHz base and a 5.3GHz single-core boost clock, the processor maintains high clock rates despite having fewer cores than its more potent brothers. The TDP is still 105 watts, a significant improvement over the 65 watts of the current-generation competitor.
As was already said, overclocking enthusiasts may be dissatisfied with the new lineup because it appears AMD is giving little to no room for overclocking. While you will still be able to undervolt the CPU, you might not be able to raise these clock rates any higher than they are at the moment. This was also the situation with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
The new AMD Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” lineup is rumored to go on sale on September 15 after being officially announced on August 29. Keep checking back because we’ll update you on all the exciting information.
