As is customary in the realm of rumors, a Chinese seller on Weibo has revealed the spec sheet of the Ryzen 7000 series, which includes a 24 core/48 thread option.
According to what we’ve heard regarding AMD’s next-generation Ryzen 7000 CPUs, the number of cores will remain constant, with the R9 7950X having a maximum of 16 cores and 32 threads. The uniqueness appears to be in the IPC and speeds, which translate to superb single-threaded and gaming performance. All X-series models, including the Ryzen 5 7600X, Ryzen 7 7800X, and Ryzen 9 7900X, will boast core clock speeds of above 5GHz, a first for the Zen family.
No evidence of such a model has been found in any roadmap, but it’s plausible that AMD is planning an emergency top-of-the-line CPU if Raptor Lake proves to be too good. It’s worth noting that Intel intends to double the number of efficiency cores (8P + 16E = 24) in its 13th generation CPUs, which could surpass Zen 4 in content creation workloads where they’re utilized. For a long period, AMD CPUs dominated the multithreading market.
