16-core AMD Ryzen 9 7950X will have 170W TDP, 200W+ charging power?


AMD’s next-gen Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” flagship will have a TDP of 170W, compared to 105W on the Ryzen 9 5950X. the Ryzen 9 7950X, despite being a 16-core, 32-thread part, will have a power consumption of 170W, and increased power consumption of 225-255W. Meanwhile, its 12-core sibling, the Ryzen 9 7900X will have a base power consumption of 105W and an increased power consumption exceeding 125W.

This information was shared by Greymon55, a reputable leaker on future Ryzen/Radeon products. According to the insider, the Ryzen 7000 stack will consist of 65W non-X Ryzen chips, 105W Ryzen 7 7800X and Ryzen 9 7900X, and 120W Ryzen 9 7950X.

From this tweet, it looks like next-gen Raphael CPUs will be limited to 16 high-end cores, keeping roughly the core count of existing Vermeer parts. It means that AMD may have a single-threaded/CPI lead over rival Intel Raptor Lake processors, but will almost certainly lag behind in multi-threaded workloads.

Raptor Lake-S processors will double the number of efficiency cores from 8 to 16. Overall, the 13th Gen Core chips will have up to 24 cores and 32 threads with slight changes to the base architecture, possibly the memory subsystem.
