AMD Ryzen 7000 processors have been tested with quite high frequencies, reaching up to 5.5 GHz. But it seems that they can increase the speed even more, with a maximum frequency of 5.85 GHz.
Earlier this week, AMD confirmed a few more details about its Ryzen 7000 CPUs, codenamed Raphael. The company has confirmed that the TDP of its main Ryzen 7000 processors will be 170W and the maximum power of socket AM5 (LGA 1718) will be 230W, something they did not say at launch, which generated significant discontent among fans of the company. brand.
He also confirmed that the gaming demo at Computex 2022 was using a prototype with 16 cores running at 5.5 GHz with multiple threads. AMD a couple of days later confirmed that the prototype was running at an operating range of 170W.
Now, according to a report by Angstronomics, it seems that the top-of-the-range model would reach 5.85 GHz and that this would be the maximum frequency limit.
5.85 GHz is a pretty high frequency, but considering this was a prototype of the AMD Ryzen 7000 processors, the final spec could well be within that range or change. Some of the 16 available cores could exceed 5.5GHz speeds and deliver speeds we’ve never seen before on an AMD Ryzen CPU.
Intel is also in the race for high speed CPUs.
Intel is also targeting high speeds with its Raptor Lake-S processors, so it makes sense for AMD to fight the blue team on all of this, something that hasn’t been a point of contention between the two giants in recent years.
We’re already excited to see speeds at 5.5GHz for AMD Ryzen 7000 processors, so anything above that would be a treat for consumers eager to build a new socket AM5 PC with the latest desktop CPUs. Ryzen 7000 with Zen 4.
Of course, such frequencies can only be allowed on top-of-the-line motherboards with socket AM5, which we have already seen. they won’t be cheapsuch as those based on the X670E chips with VRM to efficiently handle power supply requirements for new processors.
