Rumors have been stating that AMD’s next-gen Ryzen 7000 processors will run much hotter than their predecessors on account of the denser logic. More recent discoveries, however, have proved otherwise. According to a new set of benchmarks, a single-CCD Zen 4 processor (6 to 8 cores) consumes just under 70W under heavy load with an operating clock of 5,049MHz.
This Ryzen 7000 CPU draws 122W at stock with an all-core boost clock of 5,049MHz alongside thermals exceeding 90°C. However, with just a bit of voltage optimization, the temps drop to just 56.5 degrees, and the effective power draw falls under 60W, an impressive result considering the fact that we’re looking at intensive FP workloads.
