AMD processor 93.1 ℃ proved to be a bug

AMD has just released the Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4" processors, based on TSMC's 5nm, which can provide up to 16 cores, a 5.7 GHz acceleration frequency, and a 13% increase in IPC, but in fact IPC is only A small part of the performance improvement, and more performance advantages come from ultra-high frequency and TDP, and the new product will be available on September 27, starting at $299.

According to reports, the 16-core AMD Ryzen 9 7950X processor can provide 57% higher media performance than the competition in V-Ray Render, and even the 6-core AMD Ryzen 5 7600X processor has better than competing flagships. 5% faster gaming processor performance.

In addition, AMD claims that the Ryzen 7950X processor is 47% more energy efficient than the competition. The above data refer to the 12th-generation Core, but in fact, Intel's 13th-generation Core has also achieved significant performance improvements through high frequency and high power consumption. There is not much difference between the two just looking at the next-generation products.

After the release of AMD's new products, some UP masters found that the AMD Ryzen 7000 CPU would be very hot when running, the R9 7950X reached 95 degrees Celsius at 230W, and the Ryzen 5 7600X could reach over 90 degrees Celsius at 120W.

However, he also emphasized that this is based on ES/QS processors, so the final result may vary.

Now another digital enthusiast has given a set of data that shows that there is a problem with the ES/QS processor used in the above UP main test. @Harukaze5719 gave a set of AIDA64 data, allegedly from AMD Ryzen 5 7600X CPU. The first result shows us a configuration with the ES chip running at 5.05 GHz when it reached 93.1°C and 122W in the AIDA64 FPU stress test.

But in the second window, we can see that after manually adjusting the Vcore, the CPU can still maintain a frequency of 5.05GHz, while the temperature is directly halved to 56.5°C, and the power is reduced to 56.5°C without affecting performance. 68W, which is basically the same as AMD's official data.

He believes that the default power supply or voltage configuration in the AMD Ryzen 7000 ES/QS version of the processor seems to be wrong, causing such high temperatures, but it is not difficult to solve this problem, it is still difficult to achieve higher frequencies. It needs to be set to a higher voltage.

He says that just manually adjusting CLK can get very reasonable results, and there's still a lot of CLK/temp headroom. There are still more than 3 weeks before this processor goes on sale, and AMD is expected to solve this problem in the production version.

 It is worth mentioning that after the UP master tried it and found that it was indeed effective, he took the initiative to apologize.
