New AMD Ryzen 3rd Generation Rumours - AMD's CES Demo was Power-Limited

Should we expect more power from Zen 2?

It's quite unusual for either side to play koi about how good their next gen parts perform.
But if this is true it would be a great ploy for amd. Let Intel think they have nothing to worry about and then hit them hard on release. Let's hope, I expect a few more leaks in the near future once oems start getting their hands on es'

Yeah usually the idealised scenario for clocks vs power is a square/power of two relationship, so you need about double the power for around 40% (sqrt(2)=~1.41) clock speed increase, which you can roughly see across most product stacks with multiple TDPs on the same chip or when overclocking, so ideally 30-40% extra power would deliver 14-18% higher clock speeds, but of course there other factors at play that could push that either way a bit.

Showing off the better efficiency of what I think we can assume is about a 60W TDP model I'd guess is obviously much more impressive but of course AMD has no reason not to stick with at least a 90W TDP for their high end parts, obviously for the single chiplet parts at least.
