While announcing its Ryzen 7000 processors, AMD showed a chip that indicates that the associated AM5 platform natively supports up to 170 watts. However, the exact meaning of this number was not clear yet. Meanwhile, the red team has provided more information to Paul Alcorn of Tom’s Hardware.
For example, AMD announced that the AM5 processor base has a packet power tracking value of 170W. This is 28 watts more than the maximum 142 watts for AM4 processors with tdp 105 watts. This peak value is higher than tdp, which means that the latter will practically be less than 170 watts for chips based on Zen 4.
As usual, AMD uses a PPT ratio of 1.35 compared to TDP. So, in theory, the most powerful Ryzen 7000 SKUs could have a TDP rating of around 125W, or about 20% more than their predecessors. However, there is no guarantee that this will be the case with this generation.
This additional boost may help boost clock speeds: During a demo in Ghostwire: Tokyo, an overlay shows that an unknown SKU should be able to boost to at least 5.52GHz. Additionally, the 16-head Ryzen 7000 processor claims to run up to 31% faster in the blender than the Intel Core i9-12900K (16c/24t) processor.
