AMD Raphael ( Zen 4 ) : no more than 16 cores ?

AMD Raphael ( Zen 4 ) : no more than 16 cores ?

Previous rumors suggested that Raphael, AMD’s upcoming Zen 4 consumer CPU, might actually have 24 cores. The latest information on the subject does not seem to support this. It seems that this is not really the case and Raphael could be built on a basis of two full compute tiles, as it is currently the case on the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor. This new information is in line with what Gamers Nexus detailed in March 2020. On a featured leak, one of the slides mentioned two Zen4 CCDs codenamed Durango, each with 8 cores and 16 threads.

For the record, the AMD Raphael series is based on the TSMC 5nm manufacturing process. These processors are expected to take the name of the AMD Ryzen 6000 or 7000 series and will be the first to support DDR5 memory and switch to a new socket based on LGA1718 and codenamed AM5. amd-raphael For the moment we must be cautious because if we stay there, the timetable of passage but also the changeover to Zen 4 could put AMD in difficulty against Intel for the first time in recent years. Indeed, Zen 4 could arrive only in the second half of 2022, the moment when Intel would gradually move from Alder Lake to Raptor Lake with a significant improvement of a generation that already looks very competitive.
