AMD Zen 4 processors get up to 16 cores, TDP up to 170 watts

The rumor mill has been running at full speed for some time regarding AMD’s upcoming Zen 4 desktop processors. For example, these chips will reportedly use an LGA socket, in addition, the use of an integrated Navi 2 GPU is mentioned. There is also talk in the corridors about a possible increase in the number of cores, from 16 to 24.


ExecutableFix shared some renders of Raphael’s heat spreader last month.

However, if we are to believe ExecutableFix, Raphael’s core count remains unchanged from its predecessor. This means that the best Zen 4 sku, like the Ryzen 9 5950X, will have 16 cores and 32 threads. This is consistent with information Gamers Nexus received over the course of last year, which claims that a maximum of two chiplets with eight cores each will be used. Patrick Schur also reports on Twitter that the Zen 4 chips will have a maximum of 16 cores. He adds that a tdp of up to 170 watts should be possible, which was also previously claimed by ExecutableFix.


The alleged Ryzen 6000 line will be baked on TSMC’s 5nm process. It must be the first CPUs of the red camp that support DDR5 memory. The first models are expected to hit the market around the second or third quarter of 2022, this generation will probably have to compete with Intel’s Raptor Lake chips.
