New reports on thermal performance AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs shared by Curious Citizen on Bilibili And it looks like the upcoming Zen 4 chips will require serious cooling hardware to tame them.
AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs Run Very Hot With Ryzen 9 7950X Going Up To 95C At 230W And Ryzen 5 7600X Going To 90C At 120W, Rumor Has It
The leak, which is quite reliable with its past information and leaks, stated that AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs based on the Zen 4 core architecture will be one of the hottest chips ever produced. The leaker mentions two custom chips, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and the Ryzen 5 7600X. Note that the information shared is based on ES/QS samples, so final results may vary..
Coming to the core of the details, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X will reportedly drop below 5.0 GHz under intense tasks along with the 95C Thermal Threshold or TjMax, and you’ll need some beefy coolers to keep the chip running under it. He. At full load in the stock configuration, the CPU is said to consume up to 230 Watts and run up to 95C. The Ryzen 5 7600X is in a similar scenario where the chip consumes up to 120W at full load and reaches temperatures of up to 90C.
This time Zen4 vs. RPL, the multi-core 7950X will lose to the 13900K without a doubt. The accumulated heat combined with the heat wall will cause the 7950X to be unable to handle 5G, 230W at 95 degrees under heavy load and will be ash when it comes out. Even the R5 isn’t much better, 120W is 90 degrees, which compromises the cost. 230W 95 degrees Zen4 vs 270W 82 degrees RPL,
I must say it’s good to have cash and the waffles can be made haphazardly. In terms of price, AMD may not have an advantage this time. The first X670E isn’t cheap. DDR5 is still not as cheap as DDR4. While the AMD CPU is cheaper, Intel will have the cheaper B660 and DDR4 at this stage. 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 AMD Ryzen 9 7000 series chips run at 92-94C on AIDA64 using a high-end 360mm AIO Liquid cooler. No overclocking was implemented and once again this is the result of a stock QS chip. The leak continued to compare the thermal density and performance of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs with Intel’s upcoming 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs.
It reports that despite consuming a much higher wattage of 270W, the Raptor Lake CPU is able to maintain much lower temperatures of 82C at full load using the same cooling equipment as Ryzen CPUs. It even continues to show the Intel Core i9-13900K’s 5.3 GHz all-core overclocking result, which can stay below 85C.
Considering that the Zen 4 chips are smaller but much denser than their predecessors, they will need a lot of cooling. It seems like this might be one reason why the chips are gold plated this time to effectively move a lot of heat from them and to the IHS. 170W is the highest TDP rating of the CPU, while the PPT or maximum packet power is rated at 230W and the figure 280W is used for the OC. The numbers also include the IO die, which on its own should be around 20-25W. Below is the thermal density breakdown. harukaze5719:
All this means that users should definitely look forward to investing in some really high-end AIO coolers if they plan to build a new PC with AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs. Of course, this is just a rumor for now and we’ll have to wait for final tests and reviews to confirm the validity of this rumor, but AMD has done its best to make sure the heat is dissipated from the CPUs. gold plated on both IHS and Zen 4 CCDs as detailed here. AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs launch with the AM5 platform on September 27.
