AMD Removes Max Temperatures For Ryzen 3000 CPUs, Is AMD Hiding Something?

AMD Ryzen CPUs are the new powerhouse and are overtaking Intel CPU in the market. With the level of performance these CPUs provide, it’s obvious that max temperatures need to be kept in check. While all previous Ryzen CPUs have their max temperatures listed but AMD has, for some reason, refrained from listing max temperatures for Ryzen 3000 CPUs.

Eagle-eyed enthusiasts have noticed that AMD didn’t list max temperatures for its Ryzen 3000 CPUs. While it wouldn’t be a cause for worry but given that AMD has listed max temperatures for all of its previous Ryzen CPUs including 2600X and 2700X, it’s rather odd.

One user has noted that AIDA64 reports 95C max temperature for AMD Ryzen 3700X. It’s important to note that that temperature listed is for the stock cooler. Max temperature vary and are mostly lower with aftermarket coolers.

Why AMD hasn’t listed max temperatures for its Ryzen 3000 CPUs? Only AMD can answer that until then, we can only speculate. One possibility could be that they simply forgot to mention in the listings.

Another possibility could be that AMD doesn’t want to reveal the max temperatures as they might be too high. We have reached out to AMD for a comment and will let you know as soon as we hear from them.

Ever since Ryzen CPUs launched, they have been creating problems for Intel. Intel tried to resist at first but it seems that the company has accepted defeat.

Recently, a report emerged that Intel is preparing to drop CPU prices by 15% to counter AMD Ryzen 3000 desktop CPUs. For now, the price will be the only thing that will save Intel as its CPUs are weak in terms of performance compared to Ryen.

This was also reflected by AMD Ryzen 9 3950X benchmarks. Ryzen 9 3950X destroyed Intel Core i9-9980XE in both single-threaded and multi-threaded performance.

Ryzen 3000 CPUs are based on 7nm Zen 2 architecture and this isn’t the only product powered by it. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett both feature APUs based on a variant of Zen 2 architecture with Navi graphics. Furthermore, both consoles support real-time Ray Tracing.
