AMD Ryzen 7000 Series CPUs may use up to 170W, according to rumors.

AMD has stated that the next Ryzen desktop generation will be released in the second half of this year. Greymon55, a serial Twitter leaker with a strong track record for precise predictions, believes the 16C32T component, codenamed 'Raphael' and officially known as Ryzen 7000 Series, would use up-to 170W.

A 170W TDP is significantly greater than the 105W TDP assigned to the current-generation Ryzen 9 5950X, which also uses a 16C32T architecture. Given that Raphael is constructed on energy- and space-saving 5nm technology, this result contradicts the more constrained per-core wattage often seen when going down nodes.That isn't to suggest that 170W isn't correct or realistic. AMD is switching to a more complicated LGA1718 package with DDR5 and PCIe Gen 5 support, and it's entirely possible AMD wants to extract maximum performance by lifting the power envelope lid; Ryzen 7000 Series Raphael will compete for mainstream desktop supremacy in 2022 against Intel 13th Gen Core 'Raptor Lake.'

Users may choose to update in order to alter their cooling in order to compensate for the higher TDP. Watercooling or bigger air heatsinks are the way to go to this level, which we have seen Intel in Maximum Turbo Power mode on premium processors for some time. According to the same source, the next 12C24T Ryzen 7000 Series CPU would keep the current 105W TDP.
