The supposed full specifications for four SKUs of the upcoming AMD Ryzen 7000 series have been leaked. Astonishingly, it seems that the Ryzen 9 7950X will have a base clock that is a huge 1.1 GHz higher than that of the Ryzen 9 5950X. The Zen 4 “Raphael” chips can thank higher TDPs for the impressive clock-speed increases.

Full specifications for the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X have purportedly leaked, revealing incredible clock rate upgrades over their Ryzen 5000 counterparts. The other main difference to be noted is the increase in TDP, although there are slightly higher L2 caches coming to Ryzen 7000 as well. As can be seen in the comparison table below, base clock rates for Zen 4 Raphael are 1-1.1 GHz higher than those for Zen 3 Vermeer, while there are 700-800 MHz buffs to look forward to in regard to boost clock rates.

The Ryzen 7000 boost clock rates are considerably higher than what were considered optimistic predictions made by leaker Greymon55 back in May, with the Ryzen 9 7950X now apparently ready to hit 5.7 GHz rather than the 5.4 GHz that had been suggested. Obviously, the Zen 4 parts will require more power for these clock speed increases (which range from +15.22% to up to over +32.35%), with the top-end processor expected to require a 170 W TDP whereas the Ryzen 9 5950X was satisfied with a 105 W TDP.

Team Red has clearly focused on offering customers higher and faster performance levels rather than stuffing its chips with more cores, as core and thread counts for the Ryzen 7000 CPUs match their Ryzen 5000 counterparts. Considering the reported price tags for the Zen 4 chips, which are expected to turn up at some point around mid-September, the AMD Ryzen 5 7600X arguably already looks like a future favorite among desktop PC builders. The alleged price tag for this unit is US$299, with the 6-core processor promising a base clock that is a massive +27.03% (1 GHz: 3.7 GHz to 4.7 GHz) faster than the very popular AMD Ryzen 5 5600X.
