Rumor: Ryzen 7000 will get performance gains of 7 to 10% per clock and can automatically overclock to 5.85 GHz
AMD plans to release Ryzen 7000 processors with Zen 4 architecture only this fall, so at the May event limited itself to mentioning only general characteristics of the new family.Performance gains in single-threaded applications of more than 15% and the ability to automatically raise the frequency beyond the 5 GHz limit hit the AMD presentation, but these are very conservative estimates, as knowledgeable sources convince.Image source: AMDThe young and ambitious website Angstronomics continues to gain the trust of the audience through important news about AMD products.According to the source, the internal goal for the company is to increase performance per clock-cycle in single-threaded loads by 7% when moving from Zen 3 to Zen 4, and in multi-threaded loads the increase can reach all of 10%.Taking into account that clock speeds will also increase, the actual performance gain will be higher than these limits.Besides, when actively working with RAM, DDR5, which support for AMD debuted under Zen 4 architecture, will have an advantage.In the description of Ryzen 7000 processors' frequency response the primary source reminds about the ability to run up to 5.55 GHz including unattended liquid cooling system, but without manual overclocking.Adding to the intrigue is a statement from the Angstronomics site about the existence of a Raphael model with a maximum frequency of 5.85GHz, which is achieved by one or more cores as a result of automatic overclocking.The source also explains the reasons why AMD has no plans to release Raphael models with more than sixteen cores.Initially, Socket AM5 platform was designed with Socket AM4 cooling system compatibility with the new CPU socket in mind.For this reason, the latter had to keep the same geometric dimensions, and the transition to the LGA design forced the company to move the front side of the substrate condensers.In turn, this required the use of an unusually shaped heat spreader cover with rectangular cutouts for \"islands\" with capacitors.All this severely limited the possibility to place additional crystals on the substrate for Socket AM5 CPUs, therefore, computing cores are distributed only in two crystals, eight pieces each.Increasing the number of cores within the existing 5-nm process technology, taking into account the increase in the second level cache capacity, is not possible.
AMD Ryzen 7000 processors with Zen 4 architecture will provide 15% performance boost
Official details about AMD's Raphael family processors will no doubt be presented by company head Lisa Su at the opening of Computex 2022 today, but so far leaks from the official presentation suggest that they will outperform their predecessors by 15% or more in single threaded applications.Source image: VideoCardzThe Ryzen 7000 family will offer a combination of Zen 4 architecture, DDR5 memory support and PCI Express 5.0 bus.To work with new processors will require motherboard socket AM5 (LGA 1718), but the former cooling system for Socket AM4 will remain compatible with them.The TDP limit for the platform as a whole will be increased to 170 W, but it is not yet possible to say that such limit will be achieved within the Ryzen 7000 family.The processors with the Zen 4 architecture will receive a doubled to 1 MB of cache memory per core, and the maximum frequency in auto-tuning mode will exceed 5 GHz.In single threaded applications the performance gain will be more than 15%, although this statement still needs to be explained in more detail by the authors of the presentation.Finally, along with the architecture Zen 4 will be implemented additional instructions for working with artificial intelligence.Under the cover of the heat spreader, which will get a new shaped form due to the need to envelope located on the PCB microelectronic elements, will be located three crystals.Two of them will be manufactured at 5nm by TSMC and will carry processing cores, while the third will integrate memory controllers and PCI Express 5.0 bus, a power management subsystem, as well as integrated graphics of RDNA 2 generation.This chip will be produced by 6-nm technology, which in general should give the processors optimal thermal performance and power consumption.The announcement of Ryzen 7000 processors is scheduled for this fall, and so far we can only dream of more specifics.
An engineering sample of the eight-core Ryzen 7000 (Raphael) desktop processor has made its mark in a 5.2GHz test with integrated graphics
The OpenBenchmarking database has revealed test data on the AMD Ryzen 7000 engineering sample of the forthcoming Raphael series processor.The chip was tested in the comprehensive Phoronix Test Suite, which is used by various companies to test the stability of this or that computer hardware.Image source: VideoCardzThe said engineering sample of the Ryzen 7000 processor was tagged with OPN code 100-000000666.The data indicates that the chip has eight cores on board with support for 16 virtual threads, and runs at up to 5.21GHz.The processor was tested on the Splinter-RPL AM5 test platform in an Ubuntu 20.04 software environment.Image source here and below: OpenBenchmarkingThe chip data also includes the identification number of the embedded graphics core, GFX1036.It is expected that the integrated graphics in Ryzen 7000 processors will be based on RDNA 2 architecture.There is no information about the speed of the processor itself, only about the speed of graphics.But here so far there is nothing to surprise.Since the chip involved in the tests was an engineering sample, its built-in graphics, apparently, did not work at full capacity.In its current state its performance is lower than that of Intel Xe-LP and Radeon Vega \"embedded\" and even more so Van Gogh (iGPU of Steam Deck console). Performance of GFX1036 (RDNA2) embedded graphics core of Ryzen 7000 engineering sampleWe note that in the coming generation of AMD processors all or most models will have embedded graphics.Now \"embedded\" has only chips Ryzen G-series, which are built on the same crystals as the mobile processors AMD Ryzen.In the next generation of this approach will be abandoned, if the rumors are true.However, you should also take into account that the built-in graphics Ryzen 7000 (Raphael) processors do not claim to be a gaming.The graphics core of Ryzen 7000 desktop processors will serve only one purpose - to display images on the screen without the need for a discrete graphics card, while possibly having a basic set to decode the video stream.Again, if the rumors are to be believed.Ryzen 7000 desktop processors are expected in the second half of this year.Perhaps their release will take place in September.AMD will take part in Computex 2022 at the end of this month, where it is possible to reveal new details about these chips.
