Two Twitter insiders agree: Among the upcoming Ryzen 7000 CPUs, codenamed Raphael, there will also be a 16-core model with a 170W TDP. This would be a significant increase in TDP over the Ryzen 5000.

after Grimon 55 About the Ryzen 9 7000 family variants with 65W, 105W and 170W 16-core 32-pin and 170W variants WroteTrue HXL Nick name @9550pro in content.

Accordingly, the 16 cores should have a TDP (thermal design power) of 170 watts and a PPT (packet tracing power) of 230 watts. The TDP to PPT ratio will remain at a factor of 1.35, as will the Ryzen 9 5950X with its 105W TDP and 140W PPT.

PPT stands for maximum electrical power that can be called as long as the temperature is not too high. CPU Power Consumption: What Does “TDP” Mean for Intel Core and AMD Ryzen provides background information on a very complex topic.

6nm chip I/O

While chiplets are manufactured with 5nm CPU cores, AMD has already confirmed this, the I / O die, which equips processors with different interfaces, will also get a more accurate machining process. According to HXL’s tweet, the Ryzen 5000 goes from 12nm to 6nm in the Ryzen 7000.

In principle, Rafael should also handle DDR4

was before Grimon 55 He also tweeted that Zen 4’s memory controllers can handle not only DDR5 but also DDR4 memory. However, this does not necessarily mean that the final product officially supports DDR4. However, with Intel Alder Lake, this is the case in the transition to a new memory generation and motherboards are available with either DDR4 or DDR5 sockets.

AMD has announced its first new-socket AM5 Ryzen 7000 CPU for the second half of 2022. Aside from Zen4 architecture, 5nm production, DDR5 and PCIe 5.0 support, there are hardly any official details.
