AMD’s Ryzen 7000 (Raphael) processors with Zen 4 cores will arrive this fall to destroy the best processors on the market. However, hardware leaks An enthusiastic citizen (opens in new tab) has spoiled us with the potential specs for the next generation of chips. Then, out of the blue, ASRock released an official statement through its Weibo account (opens in new tab) denying that the information came from the company, suggesting that the specs are probably accurate.

Like the Ryzen 5000 (Vermeer), the Ryzen 7000 will max out at 16 cores and 32 threads. It may sound disappointing to some, as many early rumors claimed that AMD could go as high as 24 cores on consumer chips. But objectively, AMD doesn’t have much reason to increase the core count of its Ryzen desktop processors. The chipmaker already offers the largest number of cores per consumer chip, if you don’t count Intel’s whole hybrid antics with performance cores (P-Cores) and efficiency cores (E-Cores). Raptor Lake, Ryzen 7000’s competitor, offers up to 24 cores consisting of eight P-cores and 16 E-cores.
