AMD Raphael (Zen 4) Desktop CPUs Limited to 16 Cores

Taken from Videocardz … ExecutableFix claims that AMD’s upcoming Zen4 based series for desktops will be limited to 16 cores.

This news might come as a surprise as previous rumors have suggested that Raphael might actually feature 3 compute tiles, supposedly increasing the core count to 24. It seems that this is not really the case. The top SKU is likely limited to 16 cores which implies two full compute tiles, just as it is now on AMD Ryzen 9 5950X CPU.

This rumor matches the information Gamers Nexus received back in March 2020. One of the slides mentioned two Zen4 CCDs codenamed Durango, each with 8 cores and 16 threads. It would appear that this slide was correct.
