The new Ryzen processors from AMD based on Zen 4 should clock up to 5.4 GHz and offer up to 24 cores.
AMD is apparently planning Ryzen 7000 CPUs with up to 24 cores.
Only recently did the benchmark result of a Ryzen 7000 CPU with a 5.21 GHz boost clock appear on the internet. But AMD could aim for significantly higher clock rates with its brand new Raphael processors. The new information comes from the two YouTube channels “RedGamingTech” and “Zhongzheng Evaluation” and offers a good preview of the upcoming AMD chips based on the Zen 4 architecture.
Up to 24 cores and 5.4 GHz turbo clock
Accordingly, the flagship Ryzen 9 7950X will have 16 or 24 cores and will reach a clock speed of 5.4 GHz in the boost. In addition, there should be three more Raphael CPUs: The Ryzen 9 7900X should have 16 or 24 cores, achieve a turbo clock of 5.3 GHz and be offered for the equivalent of 650 US dollars. There are likely to be two models, one with 24 cores and a lower clock. The CPU with 16 cores, on the other hand, should be able to clock up to 5.3 GHz. The TDP values of these CPUs should be between 105 and 170 watts.
Smaller models planned
The next processor called Ryzen 7 7800X should have 8 cores and 16 threads. The turbo clock is a bit lower at 5.2 GHz. In return, 500 US dollars should be due for this CPU. The TDP is also lower at 105 watts. And then there’s the Ryzen 5 7600X, which has 6 cores and 12 threads and clocks up to 5.1 GHz in turbo. AMD is said to be targeting an MSRP of $350 for this CPU. The TDP is a low 65 watts. The mentioned Ryzen 7000 processors should be launched in autumn. An official confirmation of the planned Raphael processors by the manufacturer is still pending.
