News and articles for the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X

The evolution of AMD Ryzen processors
Posted by Stefan on 2022-09-06
The AMD Ryzen processors are designed for the mid to high-end range and are grouped into the Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 9 classes. AMD follows the market leader Intel, which groups its Core i series (Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 and Core i9) identically.

The AMD Ryzen processors were first introduced by AMD in Q1 2017. They are the successor to the not particularly successful AMD Bulldozer processors. The latter were manufactured using an outdated manufacturing process and could not keep up with the competing products from Intel. AMD lost a large portion of its desktop processor market share during this period.
AMD Ryzen 7000 and Intel Core i 13 Gen at almost 6 GHz clock speed
Posted by Stefan on 2022-08-29
In September, both AMD and Intel are introducing their new mainstream desktop processors. It doesn't seem to have been as close as this year for a long time, leaked benchmarks of the new top models from AMD and Intel point to a head-to-head race.

This year even the 6 GHz clock limit is almost within reach. With a good cooler and some overclocking it should be possible to reach the 6 GHz limit. But even in series production, the manufacturers try to realize the highest possible clock frequency, at least on one core.
AMD Ryzen 5 7600X and AMD Ryzen 7 7800X are coming in September
Posted by Stefan on 2022-06-20
After we published a performance assessment of the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X last week, the well-known AMD leaker Greymon55 has now posted more informations via Twitter.

He predicts the first four models of the new Zen 4 desktop generation, which AMD would like to present at the end of 2022. There is also an alleged release date of September 15, 2022.
AMD Ryzen 9 7950X - Cinebench R23 Benchmark projection
Posted by Stefan on 2022-06-10
We give you a preview of AMD's new Zen 4 desktop processors and calculate the performance of the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X top model for the new AM5 socket. The performance data and other technical details come directly from the press kit that AMD released as part of its Financial Analyst Day on June 9, 2022.

Up to 15 percent more single-core performance and 35 percent more multi-core performance of the 16-core model are realistic !

The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X is currently the largest desktop processor for the AM5 socket from AMD. It has 16 equally sized CPU cores and can process up to 32 threads in parallel thanks to the support of Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT). Its basic clock frequency is already high at 4.5 GHz. Up to 5.5 GHz (1 core) or 5.2 GHz (all cores) are possible in turbo mode.

The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X is based on AMDs "Raphael" (Zen 4) architecture, which bundles Zen 4 CPU cores with a small RDNA2 graphics card. Similar to Intels desktop processors, the graphics card is not very fast and is only intended to ensure that the processor can also be operated without a dedicated graphics card.

The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X supports up to 256 GB DDR5 RAM (max. DDR5-5200). However, the clock frequency of the main memory can still be increased by overclocking. The processor itself can also be overclocked.

The processor is fast with a memory bandwidth of 83.2 GB/s (DDR5-5200 in two memory channels). The new PCIe 5.0 standard is also supported. With PCIe 5.0, even the latest graphics cards can be connected to the system without any loss of speed.

AMD has increased the TDP of the AM5 processors: the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X can consume up to 170 watts, and even more is possible in the short term with 230 watts.

The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X is manufactured in a 5 nm process at TSMC. The processor has 64 MB level 3 cache and 8 MB level 2 cache.

The new Zen 4 CPU cores can be clocked significantly higher than their predecessors and require less energy for the same performance due to the improved production (5 nm vs 7 nm with the predecessor). Overall, however, the power consumption has increased. CPU coolers for socket AM4 should be compatible with the new socket AM5.
