A leak from the Chinese Chiphell forums suggests that AMD’s next-gen Ryzen 9 7950X CPU will feature a boost clock of over 5.4GHz. The chip was spotted running at 5.37GHz (Windows Task Manager) in a screenshot posted over at the Chiphell forums, shared by @Olrak29_ on Twitter. Greymon55, a well-known tipster has confirmed that the processor in this image is Raphael (codename for the Ryzen 7000 family), and has a peak boost clock of 5.45GHz.
All the Ryzen 7000 parts will boost over the 5GHz mark under load across all cores. The sixteen-core Ryzen 9 7950X will reportedly have a single-core boost of 5.4GHz with the 7900X, 7800X, and the 7600X reducing it by 100MHz each. All the Zen 4 consumer CPUs will have an all-core boost of 5GHz.
The Zen 4 core will likely come with an IPC boost of 15-20% through microarchitectural and process node improvements. TSMC’s 5nm (N5) node will allow AMD to boost their new CPUs significantly higher than contemporary Zen 3 parts. Company CEO Dr. Lisa Su is set to announce the Raphael lineup during the Computex 2022 keynote tomorrow. Three 600 series chipsets namely the B650, X670, and X670E are also going to be shown off.
