According to independent sources, Expreview and Wccftech, the final specifications of the future Ryzen 7000 processors have appeared.
Flagship processor Ryzen 9 7950X with 16 cores and 32 threads will have significantly higher clock speeds compared to the Zen3 5950X. It is reported that the base frequency has increased from 3.4 GHz to 4.5 GHz for Raphael, and the boost frequency reaches 5.7 GHz, which is 800 MHz more. This CPU specifically has a higher TDP of up to 170W (230W boosted).
12 core Ryzen 9 7900X will actually have a higher base frequency of 4.7 GHz, which is 1 GHz faster than its predecessor. The acceleration clock will be 5.6 GHz, which is slightly lower than the flagship CPU. Rumors that all Ryzen 9s are 170W by default are slowly finding their way, the 7900X allegedly having the same TDP as the 7950X.
The mid-range Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 versions will no longer have more cores, but the frequencies have changed here as well. Ryzen 7 7700X with 8 cores and 16 threads will overclock up to 5.4 GHz (base frequency 4.5 GHz) without any change in TDP specifications (default is 105W). However, there is no mention of the Ryzen 7 7800X.
Gamer’s Favorite Series Ryzen 5 also receives the Zen4 architecture. Clock frequency Ryzen 5 7600X will be increased to 5.3 GHz. Like the Ryzen 7, this model also has a TDP of 105W.
All Ryzen 7000 processors have a higher L2 cache – 1MB versus 500kb, but the L3 cache remains the same. This means that each model has an increased cache size compared to its predecessor. Naturally, the only exception is Ryzen 7 5800X3D with a total cache of 100MB, but AMD is reportedly already working on improved Raphael CPUs with 3D V-Cache.
AMD is set to release its Ryzen 7000 series on September 15th. More information from the company will officially follow later this month as the new series is rumored to be unveiled on August 29th.
