AMD’s high-end Ryzen 9 7000 “Raphael” desktop CPUs based on the Zen 4 core architecture may have a standard TDP of 170W. According to information shared by well-known tipster Kopite7kimi, the Ryzen 9 SKU lineup runs at 170W TDP at regular voltage.
Previous information on the high-end Ryzen 7000 SKU models indicated a standard TDP of 170W, with a maximum Package Test Track (PPT) of 230W being maintained in the AM5 slot, while high-end Ryzen 9 7000 SKUs such as the Ryzen 9 7950X (16 cores expected) and Ryzen 9 7900X (12 cores expected) will use higher TDP designs.
The “regular voltage” revealed by the tipster is what we often refer to as the reference specification. Robert Hallock from AMD previously confirmed that the Ryzen 7000 SKUs can deliver up to 170W TDP and 230W PPT, but these CPUs can run at higher voltages to get the clock frequency closer to the 6.0GHz clock wall. Sources say that Ryzen 7000 Desktop SKUs are limited to a maximum clock frequency of 5.85GHz, and overclocking should likely be closer to 6.0GHz.
Based on previous information revealed by Gigabyte, the AMD AM5 CPU lineup is expected to offer at least the following 6 configurations.
● 45W (Max PPT 60W)
● 65W (Max PPT 88W)
● 95W (Max PPT 129W)
● 105W (Max PPT 142W)
● 125W (Max PPT 169W)
● 170W (Max PPT 230W)
