AMD fixes power ratings for Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs and AM5 platforms: package power up to 170WTDP and up to 230W
update: Robert Hallock has confirmed that AMD Ryzen7000 desktop CPUs will have SKUs up to 170WTDP and 230WPPT. He also told Reddit that the 16-core prototype used in Computex 2022 wasn’t fused to a specific power / TDP value, but was operating in the range below the 170WTDP number.
The Computex processor is a 16-core prototype sample that has not yet been integrated into a specific power / TDP value, but has been operating in a lower range than the new 170WTDP group we developed. It’s a conservative number.
According to new details, AMD has confirmed that the Ryzen 7000 desktop CPU actually has a TDP of up to 170W, but other sources claim that the TDP will be 125W. This means that the power of the package has also increased, and the AM5 socket can now support up to 230W of package-specific power. This is a 1.35x increase in TDP, which is also true for AMD’s older Ryzen CPUs on AM4 sockets.
For comparison, the AMD Ryzen 5000 desktop CPU has a maximum TDP of 105W and a package power of up to 142W. This means that with the new Ryzen 7000 desktop CPU, the TDP will increase by 65 watts and the maximum package power limit will increase by 88 watts.The previous statement now released by Robert Hallock during an interview with PC World’s “Full Geek” This is also true, but only when using the 125W Ryzen 7000 SKU. The maximum package power for these chips is 170W.
“”AMD wants to fix future AMD Socket AM5 socket power and TDP limits. AMD Socket AM5 supports up to 170 WTDP with PPT up to 230 W. TDP * 1.35 is the TDP v of AMD sockets from the “Zen” era. It is a standard calculation of PPT, and the new 170W TDP group is no exception (170 * 1.35 = 229.5).
“This new TDP group will significantly improve the computing performance of core CPUs with heavy computing workloads, alongside Ryzen’s 65W and 105W TDP groups known today. AMD is a transparent and straightforward product feature to the enthusiastic community and we take this opportunity to apologize for any errors and subsequent confusion that may have occurred on this topic. ” AMD representative of Tom’s hardware (added emphasis)

The 230W package power brings AMD’s Ryzen 7000 desktop CPU and AM5 CPU platform power limits closer to the Intel 12th Generation Alder Lake-S desktop CPU platform. The Intel Core i9-12900KS and Core i9-12900K have a PL1 TDP of 125W and a PL2 (maximum turbo power) rating of up to 241 watts. Here are some tips for comparison:
- AMD Ryzen 7000: 170W CPU TDP / 230W Package Power
- AMD Ryzen 7000: 125W CPU TDP / 170W Package Power
- AMD Ryzen 5000: 105W CPU TDP / 142W Package Power
- Intel Alder Lake-S: 125W CPU PL1 / 241W PL2 power rating
According to AMD, this is about 28W above the power limit (PPT) of the AM4 package, 142W, while the CPU TDP is 105W. According to AMD, motherboard manufacturers will be able to introduce more premium power characteristics to their motherboards, providing better overclocking opportunities for enthusiasts and overclockers.
So what I want to make clear is that AMD has a 170 watt socket power supply and its specification is PPT (package power supply). This does not mean that all CPUs will be up to 170 watts, but it is 30 (watts) higher than the power limit of Socket AM4, which was 142 (watts). And this was done primarily to improve multithreaded performance. Many of the co-account chips were due to the fact that the overall computing performance was actually curtailed by the relatively modest socket power.
Another point I would like to say is that by increasing the required minimum socket power or minimum specifications, we will also increase the power supply of all motherboards built to that specification, resulting in more robust power on all boards. It is to obtain the characteristics. Similarly, it should be suitable for those who want to try overclocking and those who appreciate the design of premium boards.

AMD already Highlighting The Ryzen 7000 CPU starts at 65W, goes up on the latest Ryzen 7000 series roadmap, and you can see the segmentation at 65W / 105W / 125W / 170WSKU. In terms of launch, the AMD Ryzen 7000 desktop CPU is said to be available this fall. In other words, the fastest working chips will be in September 2022.
