During the official announcement of the Ryzen 7000 series, the value of 170 W of one of AMD’s Computex 2022 slides was much talked about.
The company decides to clarify about it and the terms associated with it. The announcement of the 170 W TDP is based on the classic definition of TDP that AMD always uses. For its part, Package-Power Tracking (PPT) is the power limit of the socket.
The new AMD socket is designed and designed to support processors up to 230W with PPT up to 170W TDP. This means there is no need to have Ryzen 7000 series specifications with a TDP of 170W.
AMD plans to use its AM5 socket for many years. Its life cycle should be similar to that of AM4, which includes five generations of Ryzen processors. Figures of TDP of 170W and PPT of 230W only indicate design targets for AM5.
AMD in a recent press release explained why the forces surrounding the AM5 have increased compared to the AM4. It is a question of clarifying future needs, multiplying cores and adapting possibilities for new functions.
Comment: AMD’s PPT value is 1.35 times higher than TDP, from the first generation of raisin chips. This is 140 W PPT for a 105 W TDP processor. The same approach is used with the Ryzen 7000s (PPT of 230 W = 1.35 x 170 W).
Upcoming AMD Socket AMD wants to adjust the AM5’s socket power and TDP limits. AMD Socket AM5 supports up to 170 W TDP with PPT up to 230 W. TDP * 1.35 is the standard calculation for TDP v. The PPT and the new 170 W TDP panel for AMD sockets in the “Zen” era were no exception (170 * 1.35 = 229.5).
This new TDP group will enable higher computer performance for a large number of CPUs at higher compute workloads, in conjunction with the 65 W and 105 W TDP groups known by Ryzen today. AMD prides itself on providing transparent and transparent product capabilities to the interested community, and we would like to take this opportunity to apologize for the mistake we made on this topic and the subsequent confusion.
