AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs could be a big leap for boost speeds. Reports coming in now claim that the Zen 4 flagship processor could hit a crazy boost of up to 5.7GHz.
AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs Could Be a Big Leap for Boost Speeds
The next-gen flagship Zen 4 processor by AMD could be clocked at a much faster time than its predecessors. The processor is even reported to be capable of boosting up to 5.7GHz. Also, other CPUs in the Ryzen 7000 will get a similar level of turbocharging, if anything about recent rumors is true.
This is actually coming from two different sources, Wccftch and Expreview on Bilibili which is a Chinese video-sharing website as per reports from VideoCardz. That being said, a lot of caution needs to be adhered to here given the fact that we would normally not rate these are the best sources of leakage. However, the purported specs do match across both sources, so that should give the rumors a bit of weight to throw around here.
AMD Is All Set To Launch Four Initial Processors
The theory here is that AMD is all set to launch four initial processors for the Ryzen 7000 range and they are the Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X which also goes on par with prior speculations. And while all the core counts stay the same as their Ryzen 5000 counterparts, clocks on the other hand are ramped up heavily.
The flagship Ryzen 9 7950X with supposed 16-cores is reportedly set to run with a base clock of 4.5GHz and also boost to 5.7GH. this would therefore represent a big step up in contrast to the present 5950X which will be an increase of 1.1GHz and 800MHz respectively.
For the Ryzen 9 7900X (12-cores) on the other hand, AMD is reported to be aiming for a base clock of 4.7GHz and boost to 5.6GHz. And this again is a huge leap compared to the 5900X which has clocks of 3.7GHz and 4.8GHz. Both of these top-end chips are reported to have a TDP of 170W by default (a figure mentioned by AMD before). However, they’ll chug 230W when the boost pedal is flat to the metal (that’s the rated PPT or Package Power Tracking, the maximum power of consumption that is allowed).
Mid-Range 8-Core Product of AMD
The mid-range 8-core product of AMD which is the Ryzen 7 7700X, is apparently going to hit 4.5GHz for its base clock and 5.4GHz boost, with the Ryzen 5 7600X (6-core part) on the other hand achieving a boost of 5.3GHz. Those chips will then have a TDP of 105W (and a PPT of 142W).
