AMD Ryzen 9 7000 processors to use up to 170W TDP

We're still a little while away from the Zen 4's debut, but rumours about the Ryzen 7000 series are beginning to circulate. According to new reports, the top-end chips will have a significantly increased TDP of up to 170W, while others will run at 105W or 65W. 

According to Greymon55, the AMD Ryzen 9 7000 SKUs will come with a 65W, 105W or 170W TDP. While the first two chips will probably be tamed using a decent CPU cooler, the latter might be more challenging, possibly forcing users to opt for AIO liquid coolers or custom loops.

The leaker also stated that the Ryzen 9 SKU with 170W would feature 16x cores and 32x threads (Ryzen 9 7950X?). As for the 105W SKU, it should come with 12x cores and 24x threads (Ryzen 9 7900X?). For now, there's no sign that Ryzen 7000 series CPUs will feature more than 16x cores, but things might change between now and release.

AMD is expected to release the Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 series in the second half of this year. Intel is also expected to roll out its new Raptor Lake CPUs in that same time frame.

KitGuru says: Despite featuring a 170W TDP, actual power consumption will probably be much higher. Even so, compared to the upcoming mainstream GPUs, CPUs will likely still consume considerably less power.
