Among the disclosure of new AM5 platform and 600-series motherboard details, AMD provided new info on Ryzen 7000 CPUs based on Zen4 architecture. Although the new series are not to release till September at least, people have been wondering what exactly did AMD want to (and not) tell to their fans.
One of such topics was the Ghostwire: Toyko game demo with 16-core engineering sample of Ryzen 7000 CPU running at 5 GHz+ frequency. Robert Hallock today confirmed this test did not involve any special cooling. AMD was actually using a 280 mm Asetek all-in-one liquid cooler for this demo. The CPU was running on an AMD engineering platform with 2x16GB DDR5-6000 CL30 memory.
 
More importantly, this sample was not overclocked. It was running stock frequency and surpassed 5 GHz with most of its threads. The frequency fluctuated between 5.2 to 5.5 GHz on multiple cores, but in the end, it will depend on the game. However, what AMD wants to say is that there was no overclocking involved and there was nothing special about this test or the CPU used.
 
Furthermore, Hallock reconfirmed that the 170W claim on AMD Computex slides did refer to PPT (socket power), not TDP of an individual CPU. The primary reason behind increased PPT power for AM5 socket was to increase multi-core frequency, Robert explains. Higher PPT means higher TDP, so there is no doubt that it contributed to the higher frequency of the AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs as seen in the gaming demo.
 
I can't wait to buy this new CPU in the fall.

    I hope AMD really pulls off a win in so many different ways that it forces Intel to really start making ground breaking changes after so many years of laziness.

    Fingers crossed for AMD and their adventure into the new socket.

    AMD already made that change happen. It seemed like 15 years Intel was happy to just have people using four cores.
