AMD Ryzen 7000 officially has up to 170W and 16 cores
AMD is slowly revealing more information in a post-keynote interview.
Over the past few days, AMD’s Robert Hallock (Technical Marketing Director) has reviewed new details on the Ryzen 7000 series, including maximum core count and TDP. This information was not included in the Computex 2022 keynote. In other words, it was not specifically attached to Ryzen 7000.
AMD Ryzen 7000 specifications
AMD Ryzen 7000 will be the top with 16 cores and 170W TDP. This isn’t all that surprising, but AMD has been very reluctant to look at these details, as we’ve reported many times about it.Co-account specifications confirmed in TechPowerUP Interview while 170WTDP is mentioned Reddit.. This literally means that the 7000 series is already fully utilizing both CCDs. This may be wondering, but it is “gold plated” thanks to a process called “backside metallization”.
AI-extension is based on AVX512 instruction
In an interview with TechPowerUP, Hallock also revealed that it was mentioned in the slide.Enhanced Procedure – AI Acceleration‘Actually means. These AI boost features rely on the AVX 512 VNNI and BLOAT16 instructions (he probably intended to say BFLOAT16 / BF16). These formats are widely used in TensorFlow, AMD ROCm, and even the NVIDIA CUDA library.
Specifically, AVX512VNNI for neural networking and AVX512BLOAT16 for inference. Both are very good speedups. It does not use fixed function acceleration. This may be possible with the acquisition of Xilinx. AI workloads are beginning to become more consumer-applicable, including video upscaling, which has grown significantly over the last two years. I think there is a general tendency for the average enthusiast to take on more AI-type workloads. […]

AMD RDNA2 GPU as standard on all Ryzen 7000 CPUs
Perhaps there is no Ryzen 7000F series without iGPU. RDNA2 graphics on I / O dies instead of compute dies are standard on all SKUs. They provide basic display output functionality, including AV1, as well as video encoding and decoding. It was previously rumored that Raphael’s RDNA2 graphics could have up to four computing units. According to Hallock, the RDNA2 iGPU specifications need to be consistent across all CPUs.
IGP is standard. It is included on all 6 nanometer IO dies and incorporates a small number of computing units, especially to enable video encoding and decoding and multiple display outputs. […] For enthusiasts, it helps to diagnose bad graphics cards and boot and run the system while still waiting for the GPU to appear. iGPU configuration [specifications] It’s consistent and every CPU has it.

AM5 and future Ryzen CPU (including Threadripper)
In an interview with Forbes / CrazyTechLab, Hallock did not check if the AM5 platform is aiming for the same long life as AM4. After all, AMD hasn’t disclosed all the details of the new series, which is still in its early construction stages.
I don’t know yet – that’s the honest answer. Building AM5 is still in its infancy. It will be released in the fall, but it’s still a long way off. One of the things we want to get rid of is what this looks like. Users expect transparency on this topic. But there is no answer yet.

In addition, the Threadripper series “doesn’t go anywhere.”This means that we’ll be looking at future Ryzen Threadripper CPUs, probably based on rumors. SP6 socket.. However, the last two generations show that AMD is currently focusing on the workstation market rather than enthusiasts.
The new information about the TDP / PPT range should also correlate with the Ryzen 8000 series. After all, AMD intends to maintain socket compatibility for some time. Therefore, it can be assumed that the maximum TDP170W will be maintained even in the Ryzen 8000 series.
AMD is probably finishing the interview for a while as Computex 2022 ends today, but the company will give more details on Financial Analyst Day in early June.
