IN Openbenchmarking database. We’ve seen Ryzen 7000 processors appear a few times, but the latest entry gives us a closer look at the preliminary specs, and things look great for the next-generation AM5 CPU.
AMD Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ ES desktop processor: 8 Zen 4 cores clocked at 5.2 GHz, RDNA 2 iGPU clocked at 2.0 GHz
The AMD Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ ES desktop processor, which is seen in the Openbenchmarking database, is part of the Phoronix Test Suite 10.8.3, which is used for the validation and testing phases. The specific processor doesn’t necessarily say which Ryzen 7000 desktop processor it is, as it’s still a bit early, but the platform and OPN code confirm that this is indeed a sample of the AM5 CPU.
So, starting with the details, the particular AMD Ryzen 7000 processor has the OPN code “100-000000666” and is the same sample we announced earlier this year. The configuration of the core also coincides with the previous models with the chip, which shakes the Zen 4 nuclear architecture with a total of 8 cores and a total of 16 threads. The most interesting part is that this chip ran up to 5.21 GHz, which is a big boost over existing chips. Just for comparison, the fastest 8-core Zen 3 chip, which is the Ryzen 7 5800X, has a clock speed of 4.7 GHz. So even in its pre-state, the Zen 4 chip offers 11% clock acceleration. Above 5 GHz would not be a surprise for a single core, as AMD has already shown a prototype Ryzen 7000 chip running at 5 GHz in all cores of CES 2022.

The platform on which the AMD Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ ES desktop processor was tested is also interesting in itself. We are looking at a new reference platform known as AMD Splinter-RPL (WS22427N000 BIOS), 16 GB of memory (mostly DDR5 as this will support AM5) and a standard storage / OS configuration. Another aspect of the Ryzen 7000 ES desktop processor is that it shakes the iGPU and not just the iGPU, but one with RDNA 2 cores.

AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Raphael desktop processors are indeed expected to offer an iGPU based on the new RDNA 2 graphics architecture. Some have said that this iGPU will include 2 or 4 CUs, so 1 or 2 WGPs. The specific iGPU is referred to as the “GFX1036” and has 512 MB of shared memory. The clock is rated at up to 2000 MHz, although we are not sure if this is a correct list or not. iGPU shares its basic design with AMD’s Rembrandt APU and therefore offers a similar Radeon HD audio suit. AMD will present Raphael in two versions, desktop and mobile. The desktop parts will retain their code name Raphael, while the mobile parts have been renamed Dragon Range. Both will share the same matrix, similar to the SKU of Intel Alder Lake-S (desktop computers) and Alder Lake-HX (mobile). So a similar iGPU configuration is likely to be seen on Dragon Range chips.
Finally, the performance of the iGPU was revealed in the OpenBenchmarking database, but it was not very useful, as the clock speeds were unknown. 2-4 CU RDNA 2 The iGPU will be able to deliver performance on par with AMD Vega’s iGPU, especially thanks to the higher TDP limits with the Ryzen 7000 ‘Raphael’ chips, which are expected to be available in 170W flavors. With that in mind, it looks like AMD will be unveiling a big presentation of Raphael and the Computex 2022 AM5 platform in a few weeks.
