Ryzen 7000 Series

THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING

From this new platform,
you can see the future

Build your next rig with an AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processor and ASUS TUF GAMING motherboards to experience advanced performance. With up to 16 “Zen 4” cores and 32 threads, boost clocks of up to 5.7GHz, and 80MB cache, the AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series keeps you ahead of the game.1
You’ll also gain access to new features for gamers with AMD Socket AM5, from the speed of DDR5 memory to the increased bandwidth of PCIe® 5.0. AMD Ryzen™ 7000 Series processors and AMD socket AM5 motherboards are unlocked for overclocking to personalize your experience. Gain even more performance when you overclock your DDR5 memory with AMD EXPO™ technology.2

1. Max boost for AMD Ryzen processors is the maximum frequency achievable by a single core on the processor running a bursty single-threaded workload. Max boost will vary based on several factors, including, but not limited to: thermal paste; system cooling; motherboard design and BIOS; the latest AMD chipset driver; and the latest OS updates. GD-150

2. Overclocking and/or undervolting AMD processors and memory, including without limitation, altering clock frequencies / multipliers or memory timing / voltage, to operate outside of AMD’s published specifications will void any applicable AMD product warranty, even when enabled via AMD hardware and/or software. This may also void warranties offered by the system manufacturer or retailer. Users assume all risks and liabilities that may arise out of overclocking and/or undervolting AMD processors, including, without limitation, failure of or damage to hardware, reduced system performance and/or data loss, corruption or vulnerability.

AMD Precision Boost Overdrive
AMD Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) pushes the CPU current and voltage budget to opportunistically increase performance. By aggressively tuning the PBO parameters, AMD’s algorithm can leverage the motherboard’s robust power solution to ramp up performance even higher.
AI Overclocking
What’s New about AI Overclocking?
As the first foray of AI Overclocking on an AMD architecture, the set of parameters has changed substantially, but voltage and clock speeds are still the primary targets for adjustment.
Predictive settings in the utility are designed to work in tandem with Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO), but they go one step further by enhancing the values for EDC, TDC, and PPT, as well as tuning the curve optimizer.
Finally, by enabling the Dynamic OC Switcher, AI Overclocking ensures that the CPU is using ideal settings whether in single- or multi-threaded workloads.
Ryzen Core Flex EDC TUF
EXAMPLE: EDC
By managing the Electrical Design Current (EDC) in tandem with the total current, this CPU can gain extra performance for short, demanding bursts.
During lightly threaded workloads, below 35A, the Level 1 EDC is set to a low value, in this case 60.
As more cores are needed, the EDC is set to 120, which was found by this user to be a sweet spot for performance.
Once the CPU passes 70A, it is in multi-threaded territory, where it was found that a high EDC of 250 gave optimal performance.
Ryzen Core Flex PPT TUF
EXAMPLE: PPT
In order to let the CPU cool off if its temperatures go too high, this user constrains the Package Power Target (PPT) when thermals increase. Specifically the short-term value (“Fast”) is used.
Until the CPU reaches 70°, it can run at full performance, so 350W is set to give plenty of overhead.
At that point, the power limit reduces to 220W, to let the CPU start reducing heat.
If it is still under sustained load and keeps getting hotter, then a more stringent 165W PPT is set at 85°.
For entry-level modules without EXPO memory support, we’ve got your back.

ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile (AEMP) is an exclusive firmware feature for PMIC-restricted memory modules. AEMP automatically detects the memory chips on your kit and then presents optimized frequency, timing and voltage profiles that you can effortlessly apply to unleash performance.
