The AMD Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” desktop processors, based on the 5nm Zen 4 architecture, expired before their presentation tomorrow at Computex 2022.
AMD Ryzen 7000 leak: World’s first 5nm desktop processors, Zen 4 dual chips, up to 16 cores, RDNA 2 GPU, launch this fall
The AMD Ryzen 7000 processors will be powered by the brand new Zen 4 core architecture, which will be a complete overhaul of the architecture. The processors will retain the design of the chipset along with the number of high cores. AMD has not confirmed anything regarding the specifications, but it is stated that they will be powered by TSNC’s 5nm process node and are intended primarily for gamers. The leak slides Video card confirms that the processor will use two Zen 4 CCD (Core Complex Dies) based on TSMC 5nm process and a single I / O array (IOD), which is manufactured on 6nm process node of TSMC.
Expected features of AMD Ryzen ‘Zen 4 desktop processor:
- Brand new Zen 4 CPU cores (IPC / Architectural enhancements)
- Brand new TSMC 5nm process node with 6nm IOD
- Support for AM5 platform with LGA1718 socket
- Dual channel DDR5 memory support
- 28 PCIe lines (exclusive CPU)
- 105-120W TDP (upper limit range ~ 170W)
The next generation of Zen 4-based Ryzen desktop processors will be codenamed Raphael and will replace Zen 3-based Ryzen 5000-based desktop processors codenamed Vermeer. From the information we have at the moment, as these will be the standard chips powered by Zen 4, we expect to see up to 16 cores and 32 threads again on the upcoming Ryzen 7000 desktop processors.
The brand new Zen 4 architecture is said to provide more than a 15% single-threaded increase in performance over the Zen 3 and reaches a clock speed of around 5 GHz, as demonstrated by them at CES 2022. The demo included an undiscovered Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 processor running at 5 GHz for all cores (number of cores not mentioned), which means that the single-threaded clock frequency will be above 5 GHz. We can expect up to 5 GHz amplification of all cores on the next generation Zen 4 platform. The processors will also be equipped with RDNA 2 iGPU, which can be used via HDMI 2.1 FRL and DP 1.4 connectors on the latest AM5 motherboards.
The AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop processors will have a perfect square shape (45×45 mm), but will have a very thin integrated heat distributor or IHS. The processors will be the same length, width and height as the existing Ryzen desktop processors and are sealed on the side so that the application of thermal paste will not fill the inside of the IHS with TIM. That’s why the current coolers will be fully compatible with the Ryzen 7000 chips.
In terms of TDP requirements, the AMD AM5 processor platform will include six different segments, starting with the flagship 170W CPU class, which is recommended for liquid coolers (280 mm or higher). It looks like this will be a chip with an aggressive clock with higher voltages and support for CPU overclocking. This segment is followed by 120W TDP processors, which are recommended to use a high-performance air cooler. Interestingly, the 45-105W variants are listed as SR1 / SR2a / SR4 thermal segments, which means they will require standard radiator solutions when operating in a standard configuration, so not much else is needed to cool .
As for the launch, it is said that the AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop processors will launch this fall, which means that the earliest we will see the chips in action is September 2022. It is definitely surprising, as motherboard manufacturers are ready mostly with its upcoming X670E, X670, and B650 proposals to be unveiled tomorrow. AMD is expected to reveal more details about its Ryzen 7000 family of processors at Computex, so be sure to join the event here tomorrow!
