CPU-Z with support for next-gen desktop CPUs
AMD and Intel are both set to launch their new desktop architectures by the end of this year. Despite this fact, the developers of CPU-Z monitoring and information software for processors have already added support for Ryzen 7000 and 13th Gen Core series with the most recent update.
The Zen4 based Raphael series will be AMD’s first DDR5/PCIe Gen5 enabled platform, a platform that will require a new socket. This means that CPU-Z devs still have a lot of work to ensure those new CPUs are fully supported. The changelog confirms that Raphael is an APU with built-in graphics. The rumor was that the upcoming Ryzen 7000 series will be the first desktop series with RDNA2 graphics (that’s not counting the repurposed mobile G-Series APUs).
For Intel Raptor Lake, devs will have to increase Efficient core count to 16 and ensure that all new overclocking and power delivery features are supported. Users should now expect AMD’s newest Ryzen 4000/5000 CPUs released earlier this month to be supported as well. Furthermore, AMD Ryzen 6000 “Rembrandt” SKUs are now recognized by the software, those are Zen3+ 6nm processors for laptops.
Through graphics tab, CPU-Z will now report on Radeon 6800S/XT series as well as Intel Arc A-Series GPUs and desktop RTX 3090 Ti.
Finally, CPU-Z will have better validation for high clock submissions, this is reminiscent of the fake 8GHz overclocking claims with Intel Core i9-12900K processors. That should no longer be possible.
