AMD Zen 4 architecture Raphael processor will improve temperature and power management technology
Currently in the thermal solution, reporting the CPU temperature is called Tcontrol (Tctl). If Tctl becomes higher, the fan will start to accelerate, if Tctl becomes lower, the fan will slow down to reduce noise. In the Raphael processor, Tctl’s CUR_TEMP (current temperature) output part has been upgraded, there will be a smoother curve, making the fan speed more stable, which helps reduce noise.
Raphael processor may use new power management technology, AMD considered this when designing the AM5 platform. The Raphael processor will avoid sudden power peaks as much as possible, and maintain the maximum efficiency for a period of time as much as possible, and the CPU will maintain as much as possible within the configured TDP.
