AMD premiere stock CPU coolers are now even better – Upgraded Wraith Prism design discovered


Update –
 AMD has confirmed that these new 6-heatpipe Wraith Prism coolers are counterfeit models that have been created by a 3rd party. This 3rd party has copied AMD’s design and has misused AMD’s logo and branding when creating these new fake-Wraith heatsinks. 

AMD has released the following statement to PC Gamer. 

 

It has come to our attention that third-party coolers using six heat pipes that are designed to look like an official AMD Wraith Prism solution, including the illegitimate use of AMD branding, are now entering the market. Please be aware that those solutions are not genuine AMD products and have not been tested and validated by AMD to meet our build quality and performance requirements. We are actively investigating the source of these products and will take necessary actions to enforce our rights to ensure users receive genuine AMD products. If you have any questions about the origin of a cooler, please verify the solution here.
 
It looks like AMD has updated its Wraith Prism heatsink to offer AMD users more cooling performance than before, providing users two additional heatpipes to improve heat dissipation and deliver lower load temperatures. 

This change was first spotted by XFastest, a Chinese hardware website, who noted that nothing else has changed for AMD’s Wraith Prism heatsink, as the cooler offers users the same number of cooling fins and no changed to the cooler’s RGB lighting effects. 

At this time it is unknown how AMD’s new six-heatpipe Wraith Prism coolers will be released to end-users. This cooler may be exclusive to specific regions, specific processors (AMD’s high-TDP models), or be a full-on Wraith Prism replacement for all high-end Ryzen series processors. 

Regardless of their reasoning, it is nice to see AMD upgrading its Wraith Prism cooler. Seeing products move to cheaper materials and lower-quality components is an all too common occurrence in the modern era, so it is nice to see that AMD is doing the opposite as its CPU market share grows.
