Key specifications for AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Series processors have surfaced, and the numbers are pretty exciting.

As revealed by Wccftech’s sources, AMD’s initial Ryzen 7000 Series lineup will comprise the Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X. A chart shared by the publication lists the flagship Zen 4 desktop CPU with a base clock of 4.5 GHz and boost clock of 5.7 GHz, a substantial improvement over the Ryzen 9 5950X’s maximum boost clock of 4.9 GHz.

Power demands for all models have gone up as expected, however, with the Ryzen 9 models listed with a 170-watt TDP and Ryzen 5/7 models listed with a 105-watt TDP.

AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Series processors are expected to offer IPC uplifts of up to 10%, although much of the performance gains will be owed to their higher clock speeds and higher TDP, as Wccftech explained in its coverage. Some of their key features include support for DDR5 memory, as well as PCIe Gen 5 support for graphics cards and M.2 SSDs. There’s also double the amount of L2 cache (1 MB vs. 512 KB).

Wccftech has learned something that may not thrill overclockers, however.

According to the same sources, the AMD Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs based on the Zen 4 core architecture may only allow users to undervolt the chip itself. This would be similar to the Ryzen 7 5800X3D which also had a voltage limit that wasn’t meant to be exceeded. It looks like AMD may already be running the CPUs at a high enough voltage to achieve the higher clock speeds that there might be little to no room left for further overclocking.

AMD is expected to announce its Ryzen 7000 Series processors and confirm their specifications and pricing during an event slated for August 29. The Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X will then go on sale on September 15, with the first reviews going out two days earlier on September 13, according to Wccftech’s sources.

    I think that sums up the article. I know I'm a jerk about it but I've yet to impressed by their Journalistic Chops.

    Am I being unfair to them?

    And I get it as a tech site that may or may not have units on hand to test in prep for the embargo lift you can't post your own thoughts or data so in order to post SOMETHING about this hype train you have to repost leaks regardless of the source.
  2. Am I being unfair to them?
    I don't think you are. For as long as I've been into PC's this has always been the case with rumors and things being over hyped ahead of the release. With social media and everything now being based on how many people click/like on your article it is even more rampant.
