The new generation of Ryzen is getting closer every day. Without having a release date…
Today we are back to talk about a Ryzen 7000, specifically the AMD Ryzen 9 7950Xof which it is indicated that it will be able to reach a maximum frequency of 5.85GHzwhich is a real milestone if we consider that its predecessor, the Ryzen 9 5950X, is capable of reaching a frequency of 4.90GHzso we are talking about an increment of 950 MHz.
That yes, as it happens in Intel, here also there are “trick“, and it is a frequency that will depend on many factors, the most important of which is temperature. In essence, we are facing the counterpart of the Intel Thermal Velocity Boost (TVB), which in this case is called frequency ‘F Max‘ and must be activated from the Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO), and what it does is increase power limitbut as long as the temperatures are considered “correct“In addition, it will also depend on the workload. In the case of the Intel Core i9-13900Kwith the TVB, is expected to reach a maximum frequency of 5.80GHzthus staying just behind.
The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X is the top of the range CPU with 16 Zen 4 cores (Persephone)
In addition to revealing the frequencies, it is disclosed that this processor will make use of two CCD’s baptized as Durango. Each of them welcomes a total of 8 cores with the code name Persephone. In a screenshot of CPU-Z, it is seen that the processor is capable of carrying the 16 cores at a frequency of 4.84 GHz, although it is unknown under what workload this frequency was. Additionally, the screenshot also confirms support for AVX512 instructions.
Little more remains to be known about the AMD Ryzen 7000 beyond the obvious, which are prices, performance and release date. At least all these unknowns could be solved in just over 24 hourswhich is when the AMD event will begin where it will present its new family of processors along with the new generation of motherboards, providing performance tests.
Rumored specifications of the AMD Ryzen 7000
As early as tomorrow, we’ll run into this AMD Ryzen 9 7950Xa top-of-the-range model that will offer a configuration of 16 cores and 32 threads processing at a Base/Turbo frequency of 4.50/5.70GHz with a TDP of 170Wwhich was listed a couple of weeks ago in a store in Canada at a price of $892 Americans, or €883 To the change.
In the same range we will come across the AMD Ryzen 9 7900Xwhich continues to impose with its configuration of 12 cores and 24 threads at Base/Turbo frequencies of 4.70/5.60 GHz and the same TDP as its older brother that was listed for $798 / €778. The most accessible models are AMD Ryzen 7 7700X with 8 cores and 16 threads @ 5.40 GHz which was listed at a price of $480/ €477and the Ryzen 5 7600X with 6 cores and 12 threads @ 5.30 GHz which was listed for $330/ €322.
