Ryzen 7000 Series Raphael CPU’s with 5nm and Dual Zen 4 Chiplets and Up To 16 Cores coupled with RDNA2 GPU!

Out of the blue moon, Higher TDP, support for Actually hardcore overclocking, Ryzen 7000 Series – Wait what?

AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Leaked: World's First 5nm Desktop CPUs, 15% Higher Single-Threaded Performance, Dual Zen 4 Chiplets, Up To 16 Cores, RDNA 2 GPU, Launching This Fall
Source – AMD

Sounds quite a mouthful, eh? But the goodness simply doesn’t stop there The AMD Ryzen 7000 processors will be powered by the brand-new Zen 4 core architecture which is going to be a total architecture overhaul. The CPUs will retain the chiplet design along with high-core counts. AMD hasn’t confirmed anything in terms of specifications but it is stated that they will be powered by TSMC’s 5nm process node and are designed for gamers first. The leaked slide by Videocardz confirms that the CPU will utilize two Zen 4 CCD’s (Core Complex Dies) based on TSMC 5nm process and a singular I/O die (IOD) which is fabricated on TSMC’s 6nm process node.

Ryzen 7000 Series Leaked: Over 15% Higher Single Threaded Performance – Goodness just doesn’t stop, yet.

What we expect to see

  1. Dual Channel DDR5 Memory Support
  2. PCIe Gen 5.0
  3. TSMC 5nm Node with 6nm IO die
  4. AM5 Socket with LGA1718 (Bye bent pins)
  5. 28 PCIe Lanes from the CPU itself
  6. 170W Max TDP (similar to intel 12th gen max tdp)
  7. Improved IHS Design for a CPU die of 45mm x 45mm

Based on the information we knew already that Zen 4 was coming this year, The next-generation Zen 4-based Ryzen Desktop CPUs will be codenamed Raphael and will replace the Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000 Desktop CPUs that are codenamed, Vermeer, since these will be the standard Zen 4-powered chips, we expect to see up to 16 cores and 32 threads once again on the coming Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs.

The brand-new Zen 4 architecture is rumored to deliver over 15% single-threaded performance gain over Zen 3 and hit clock speeds of around 5 GHz as demoed by them at CES 2022.

The demo featured an undisclosed Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 Series CPU running at 5 GHz across all cores (core count not mentioned) which means that single-thread clock speed would be beyond 5 GHz. We can expect up to a 5 GHz all-core boost on the next-generation Zen 4-powered platform. The CPUs will also come equipped with RDNA 2 iGPU which would be usable through HDMI 2.1 FRL and DP 1.4 connectors on the latest AM5 motherboards. So yeah, RX 680M for you too

Ryzen 7000 Series – Drawing The Early Conclusion Curtain

For the Ryzen 7000 Series thermals and the fact that it has a new TDP limit, a big buffed up package size and seemingly aggressive clock speeds with higher voltage and (actually hardcore overclocking) (no puns intended) I love buildzoid 😀 anyway, ill wait and see if they totally ditch boxed coolers or they ship a liquid AIO one just like there Faildozer 9590 had, lets just hope that it doesn’t end that way.

Whichever thing is fast, and from AMD have had a pretty tough past. As for users in India, well you don’t get an air conditioner bundled with the CPU – just yet, or you are just a Coolermaster :D…

Hey but they made a cooler that’s not that bad, and follows a chiller approach. Yeah right.

As for the launch, the AMD Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs are said to launch this fall which means the earliest we are going to see the chips in action is September 2022. It is definitely surprising since motherboard makers are mostly ready with their upcoming X670E, X670, and B650 offerings that will be unveiled tomorrow
