New reports regarding the thermal performance of AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs Shared by Enthusiastic citizen of Bilibili And it looks like upcoming Zen 4 chips will require serious cooling hardware to keep them tamed.
AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs run wild with the Ryzen 9 7950X reaching 95°C at 230W and Ryzen 5 7600X reaching 90°C at 120W, common colleges
A highly reliable leaker with his information and previous leaks stated that AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs based on the Zen 4 core architecture will be some of the best chips produced to date. The leaker talks about two specific chipsets, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and the Ryzen 5 7600X. Do note that the information shared is based on ES/QS samples so final results may vary.
Speaking of details, it is said that the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X will throttle below 5.0GHz on intense tasks because it comes with 95C Thermal Threshold or TjMax and you’ll need some thicker coolant to keep the chip running under that – which. When fully loaded in the stock configuration, the CPU is said to consume up to 230W of power and operate at 95°C. The Ryzen 5 7600X is also a similar scenario where the chip draws up to 120W of power at full load and reaches temperatures of up to 90°C.
This time Zen4 vs. RPL, the multi-core 7950X will lose against the 13900K with no suspense. The heat built up along with the temperature wall will make the 7950X under heavy load unable to maintain 5G, 230W at 95 degrees, and it will be ash when it comes out. Even the R5 isn’t much better, 120W is 90 degrees, which is a concession on cost. 230W 95° Zen4 vs 270W 82° RPL,
I must say that it is good to have the money, and pancakes can be made casual. In terms of price, AMD may not have an advantage this time around. The first X670E is not cheap. DDR5 is still not as cheap as DDR4. Although the AMD CPU may be cheaper, Intel will have a cheaper B660 and DDR4 at this point. R5 users are still honest. just wait. All data is from ES/QS, accuracy is not guaranteed.
We’ve also heard reports from our sources that the AMD Ryzen 9 7000 series chipset runs at 92-94°C using the AIDA64’s 360mm AIO liquid cooler. No overclocking applied and again, this is the result from the stock QS chip. The leaker went on to compare the thermal density and performance of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs with Intel’s 13th generation Raptor Lake CPUs.
He reported that despite consuming a wattage well above 270W, the Raptor Lake CPU can maintain temperatures well below 82°C at full load using the same cooling equipment as the Ryzen CPUs. It even continues to show the 5.3GHz per-core overclocking result of the Intel Core i9-13900K processor that can maintain a temperature below 85°C.
Given that the Zen 4 chipset is smaller than its predecessor but more dense, it requires a lot of cooling. This seems to be one of the reasons why the wood panels are gold-plated this time to move quite a bit of heat away from them and into the IHS. While 170W is the peak TDP rating of the CPU, PPT or its maximum packet power is rated at 230W and the 280W figure is used for the OC. The numbers also include the IO dead which should be around 20-25W by itself. The following is the thermal density analysis by Harukazi 5719:
All of this means that users should definitely look to invest in some truly high-end AIO coolers if they are planning to build a new PC with AMD’s Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs. Of course, this is just a rumor at the moment and we will wait for the final tests and reviews to confirm this rumor is true but AMD has done its best to make sure the heat is dissipated from the CPUs by Gold plating version for both IHS and Zen 4 CCDs as detailed here. AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs launched alongside the AM5 platform on September 27.
