AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs Reportedly Run Hot, Ryzen 9 7950X Hits Up To 95C Thermal Threshold at 230W, Ryzen 5 7600X Up To 90C at 120W


New reports on the thermal performance of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs have been shared by Enthusiast Citizen on Bilibili, and it looks like the upcoming Zen 4 chips will need some serious cooling hardware to keep them tame.

AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs get really hot with Ryzen 9 7950X reaching up to 95C at 230W and Ryzen 5 7600X up to 90C at 120W, rumor claims

The leaker who has been very reliable with his previous information and leaks has stated that AMD’s Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs based on the Zen 4 core architecture will be some of the hottest chips produced to date. The leaker talks about two specific chips, an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and the Ryzen 5 7600X. Please note that the information shared is based on ES/QS samples, so final results may vary.

So talking about the details, the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X has been reported to slow down on intensive tasks below 5.0GHz as it comes with a 95C Thermal Threshold or TjMax and you need some beefy coolers to run. make the chip work under Dat. At full load in stock configuration, the CPU would consume up to 230 Watts of power and operate at a maximum of 95C. The Ryzen 5 7600X is also a similar scenario where the chip consumes up to 120W of power at full load and reaches temperatures of up to 90C.

This time Zen4 vs. RPL, the multi-core 7950X will lose power to the 13900K without power. The accumulated heat combined with the temperature wall means the 7950X cannot keep 5G, 230W at 95 degrees under heavy load, and it will be ash when it comes out. Even the R5 isn’t much better, 120W 90 degrees, which is a compromise in cost. 230W 95-degree Zen4 vs 270W 82-degree RPL,

I must say it is good to have money, and the waffles can be made casually. In terms of price, AMD may not have an advantage this time around. The first X670E is not cheap. DDR5 is still not as cheap as DDR4. While AMD CPU may be cheaper, Intel will have cheaper B660 and DDR4 at this stage. R5 users are still honest. Wait a second. All data is from ES/QS, accuracy is not guaranteed.

We’ve also heard reports from our sources stating that the AMD Ryzen 9 7000 series chips are running at 92-94C using a high performance 360mm AIO Liquid cooler in AIDA64. No overclocking has been applied and again this is the result of a standard QS chip. The leaker went on to compare the thermal density and performance of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPUs to Intel’s upcoming 13th-generation Raptor Lake CPUs.

He reports that despite consuming a much higher wattage of 270W, the Raptor Lake CPU can maintain much lower temperatures of 82C at full load with the same cooling equipment as Ryzen CPUs. It even shows a 5.3GHz all-core overclocking result from the Intel Core i9-13900K that can handle temperatures below 85C.

Since the Zen 4 chiplets are smaller than their predecessor, but much denser, they will require a lot of cooling. It seems that could be a reason why the chiplets are also gold plated this time around to move as much heat as possible from them and to the IHS. While 170W is the peak TDP rating of the CPU, the PPT or maximum packet power is rated at 230W and a 280W rating is used for OC. The numbers also include the IO die which by itself should be about 20-25W. Following is a thermal density analysis by: Harukaze5719:

All of this means users should definitely look forward to investing in some really high-end AIO coolers if they plan on building a new PC with AMD’s Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs. Of course, this is just a rumor for now and we’ll wait for the final tests and reviews to confirm the validity of this rumor, but AMD has gone to great lengths to ensure that the heat is dissipated from the CPUs through a gold plate. on both the IHS and Zen 4 CCDs as described here. The AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs will be launched on September 27 along with the AM5 platform.
