The AMD Ryzen 7000 get hotter, More than 200 W of TDP!

There is no doubt that future AMD CPUs, based on the Zen 4 architecture, will be a leap in performance compared to the Ryzen 5000 and 6000. This increase in power will come from two fronts. First, the architecture, second, the increase in clock speed. Well, AMD has given new information and important details about the TDP of its Ryzen 7000 . And, therefore, on energy consumption and heat. Which as you already know will be higher than in the current generation.

Both Intel and AMD have been forced to switch sockets after several years in order to support the new technologies that have appeared. In the case of Lisa Su’s company, they have been much more conservative in maintaining the same socket for their processors for more than 5 years. However, the appearance of new standards such as DDR5 and PCI Express 5.0 forced profound changes. This in the face of the design of the new processors has allowed them to work with a higher TDP: 170 W. In addition to the already known 65 W and 105 W already used in previous generations of Ryzen desktop processors.

AMD clarifies the TDP of its Ryzen 7000 processors

There is no doubt that the Ryzen 7000 has become the flagship product of Computex. As well as its corresponding socket, the AM5. That is why AMD after the barrage of information has been forced to clarify the TDP of its Ryzen 7000.

We at AMD would like to make a correction on socket power and TDP limits in AMD’s upcoming Socket AM5. Which supports a TDP of 170 W with a PPT of up to 230 W. Which is calculated as ( TDP*1.35) for all AMD sockets during the “Zen” era, and the new 170W spec is no exception. This new group of TDPs will allow higher computational performance on models with large number of cores in heavy tasks. Which will be placed together with the groups of 65 W and 105 W for which Ryzen are known today.

It’s no secret that one of the keys to the performance boost in upcoming AMD CPUs is the ability to cross 5 GHz on all processor cores. Something that has led them to increase the maximum TDP of the processor to achieve it. Which in turn they have been able to do with the redesign of the AM5 socket. Although the important thing here is that we could see a much more complete range with the Ryzen 7000 than in previous generations.

Since we will not only have processors with a TDP of 65W and 105W, but also 170W, we will see a much wider range. At the moment we do not know what the nomenclature of the different Ryzen 7000 is . But for example, we might see a 170W Ryzen 9 7900XT, a 105W Ryzen 9 7900X, and a 65W Ryzen 9 7900. Obviously with falling clock and Boost speeds.
