During the AMD event at Computex, the company left a lot of information in the air about its Ryzen 7000, and it led to a lot of misinformation, to the point that AMD had to deny the latest reports and confirm that its AMD Ryzen 7000 processors will reach a maximum TDP of 170W.
Oddly enough, it was his Robert Hallocktechnical marketing manager at AMD, said 170W was the PPT (maximum outlet power consumption), raising speculation that the TDP could stay unchanged at 105W or increase to 125W.
Now it is just confirmed that the TDP will be up to 170W while the socket can consume up to 230W of energywhich is less power than the Intel Core i9-12900K processor itself is capable of consuming, which at maximum performance consumes up to 241W. Expect that 170W to be for the high-end processor, the Ryzen 9 7950X.
“AMD would like to release a correction to the power and TDP limits of the upcoming AMD AM5 socket. The AMD AM5 socket supports a TDP of up to 170W with a PPT of up to 230W. TDP*1.35 is the calculation TDP standard vs The PPT for AMD sockets in the “Zen” era, and the new 170W TDP is no exception (170*1.35=229.5).
This new TDP pool will enable significantly higher compute performance for high core count processors in heavy compute workloads, which will accompany the 65W and 105W TDP pools that Ryzen is currently known for. AMD prides itself on providing the enthusiast community with seamless and straightforward product functionality, and we want to take this opportunity to apologize for our error and any subsequent confusion we may have caused in this regard,” a representative said. from AMD to Tom’s Hardware.
