Alleged specifications of AMD Ryzen 7000 processors appear online

Wccftech and leaker Enthusiastic Citizen claim to have the final specs of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 lineup. This shows, among other things, that the Ryzen 9 7950X has a boost clock of up to 5.7GHz. The Ryzen 7000 processors are expected in mid-September.

According to Wccftech and Enthusiastic Citizen AMD comes first with four Ryzen 7000 models. The top model, the Ryzen 9 7950X, will get 16 cores and 32 threads, according to that medium. In addition, the chip will have a clock speed of 4.5GHz, with which the upcoming CPU would be clocked 1.1GHz higher than the Ryzen 9 5950X by default. The boost clock should be 5.7GHz on a single core and the chip will have a TDP of 170W.

The Ryzen 9 7900X will again get 12 cores, according to the leaks, with a base clock of 4.7 GHz and a boost clock of 5.6 GHz. The CPU again gets a TDP of 170W. The AMD Ryzen 7 7700X in turn gets 8 cores and 16 threads with a boost clock up to 5.4GHz and a TDP of 105W. There is no mention of a possible Ryzen 7 7800X. The lowest-ranked model AMD will release in September is the Ryzen 5 7600X. That CPU gets 6 cores and 12 threads at 4.7GHz with a boost frequency up to 5.3GHz and a TDP of 105W.

The processors all get 1MB L2 cache per core. That’s more than the previous generation: Ryzen 5000 chips had 0.5MB L2 cache per compute core. The amount of L3 cache of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs remains the same as their Ryzen 5000 predecessors, with the exception of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D which has extra stacked L3 cache. AMD is expected to introduce Ryzen 7000 models with 3D V-Cache at a later date.

Wccftech further claims that users may only be allowed to undervolt Ryzen 7000 desktop processors, just like AMD’s Ryzen 7 5800X3D. That chip had a voltage limit that prevented users from actually overclocking the chip. Ryzen 7000 would also have a frequency limit of 5.85GHz, the tech website claims. This may be due to the increased boost clocks compared to the previous generation, leaving less room for further overclocking.

AMD will release the Ryzen 7000 series later this year. That is expected to happen on September 15, but AMD has not confirmed that yet. An announcement is expected this month. The processors are based on a new Zen 4 architecture and are produced on TSMC’s N5 process. The CPUs use a new AM5 platform with an LGA socket. The processors also all get an integrated RDNA2 GPU and support for PCIe 5.0 and DDR5.
