AMD declares ‘up to 170W’ claim of Ryzen 7000 and AM5 platform

During the announcement of the Ryzen 7000 processors, AMD showed a slide indicating that the associated AM5 platform natively supports up to 170 watts. What exactly was meant by this figure, however, has not been clear until now. Meanwhile, team red has provided more information to Paul Alcorn of Tom’s Hardware.

For example, AMD has announced that the AM5 processor foot has a Package Power Tracking value of up to 170 W. That’s 28 watts more than the maximum 142 W for AM4 processors with a tdp of 105 W. This peak value is higher than the tdp, meaning the latter will in practice be less than 170 W for the Zen 4 based chips. .

As usual, AMD uses a PPT ratio of 1.35 compared to the TDP. So theoretically, the most powerful Ryzen 7000 SKUs can get 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 extra boost may help boost clock speeds: during a demonstration in Ghostwire: Tokyo, an overlay shows that an unknown sku should be able to boost to no less than 5.52 GHz. In addition, a 16-head Ryzen 7000 processor claims to perform up to 31% faster in Blender compared to the Intel Core i9-12900K (16c/24t).
