Product Description

Description

Ryzen 9 7950X has 64MB of L3 cache and operates at 4.5 GHz by default, but can boost up to 5.7 GHz, depending on the workload. AMD is making the Ryzen 9 7950X on a 5 nm production node using 13,140 million transistors. The silicon die of the chip is not fabricated at AMD, but at the foundry of TSMC. You may freely adjust the unlocked multiplier on Ryzen 9 7950X, which simplifies overclocking greatly, as you can easily dial in any overclocking frequency. 

With a TDP of 170 W, the Ryzen 9 7950X is extremely power hungry, which means you need top-notch cooling. AMD’s processor supports DDR5 memory with a dual-channel interface. The highest officially supported memory speed is 5200 MHz, but with overclocking (and the right memory modules) you can go even higher. ECC memory is supported, too, which is an important capability for mission-critical systems, to avoid data corruption. 

For communication with other components in the machine, Ryzen 9 7950X uses a PCI-Express Gen 5 connection. This processor features the Radeon Graphics integrated graphics solution. Hardware virtualization is available on the Ryzen 9 7950X, which greatly improves virtual machine performance. 

Programs using Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) can run on this processor, boosting performance for calculation-heavy applications. Besides AVX, AMD has added support for the newer AVX2 and AVX-512 instructions, too.
