One in all AMD’s approaching Ryzen 7000 (Raphael) processors has surfaced. Twitter consumer Petykemano has unearthed the mysterious 5nm chip hidden deep contained in the OpenBenchmarking.org database.
The Ryzen 7000 processor, which works by the 100-000000666-20_Y identifier, wields eight Zen 4 cores with simultaneous multithreading (SMT). We had already seen a Zen 4 chip with an identical identifier again in January. Assuming that AMD would not rework its Ryzen hierarchy, the eight-core, 12-thread half ought to be the Ryzen 7 7800X, the successor to the favored Ryzen 7 5800X. Throughout its CES 2022 keynote, AMD teased a Ryzen 7000 chip with an all-core enhance clock over 5 GHz in Halo Infinite.
The Zen 4 chip from the OpenBenchmarking submission is an engineering pattern, however that did not make it much less spectacular, because the Zen 4 half boasts a 5.21 GHz enhance clock. That is greater than each single chip on AMD’s present mainstream roster. For instance, the flagship Ryzen 9 5950X has a 4.9 GHz enhance clock, whereas the Ryzen 7 5800X maxes out at 4.7 GHz. As well as, Raphael proves what AMD can handle with Zen 4 on TSMC’s 5nm manufacturing course of. The Taiwanese foundry claims that the N5 node boasts a 30% enchancment in energy effectivity or 15% greater efficiency with a 1.8X improve in density than the 7nm node used for AMD’s current Ryzen 5000 (Vermeer) lineup.
It is a disgrace that the nameless consumer did not check the Zen 4’s processing prowess. Nonetheless, the particular person did not less than assist lend some credence to the rumor that AMD’s next-generation Ryzen processors may sport built-in graphics, extra particularly RDNA 2. In line with the benchmark software program, the Zen 4 chip has a graphics engine referred to as “GFX1036” that runs between 1,000 MHz to 2,000 MHz. As a refresher, AMD makes use of the GFX1030 ID to consult with its RDNA 2 graphics playing cards, such because the Radeon RX 6000-series. Subsequently, GFX1036 belongs to the RDNA 2 household.
The octa-core Zen 4 processor resided on a Splinter-RPL system, which could possibly be the codename for the reference AM5 platform. Sadly, the report solely alluded to 16GB of reminiscence. Nonetheless, numerous sources have instructed us that the AM5 platform will solely help DDR5 reminiscence, turning AM5 right into a premium platform when contemplating the steep pricing for early DDR5 reminiscence kits. However, Intel offers shoppers a selection to select between DDR4 and DDR5 with its twelfth Technology Alder Lake chips.
