Today, further details about AMD’s non-X Ryzen 7000 CPUs have been available. We have just recently seen a few benchmarks of these CPUs, and they did not provide information on cost or availability. These CPUs have been verified by leaker “chi11eddog” today along with a price and launch date.
Only AMD’s “X” series SKUs have been released so far in the Raphael “Zen 4” family. These components are targeted towards enthusiasts and competitive gamers, although the Ryzen 7000 CPUs will inevitably get Non-X components, just like previous generations before them. Although the corporation hasn’t formally announced the introduction of any Non-X chips yet, we are aware that further chips, in addition to the 3D V-Cache components that are anticipated to be shown at CES 2023, will soon be available to customers.
AMD Ryzen 9 7900
The AMD Ryzen 9 7900 will have a maximum clock speed of up to 5.4 GHz, 12 cores, 24 threads, and 76 MB of cache (64 MB L3 + 12 MB L3). The CPU will cost $429 US at retail, which is $120 US more than the Ryzen 9 7900X. The boost speed is reduced by 200 MHz, and the base clock is yet unknown, but considering the pricing, this 12-core processor seems fantastic.
AMD Ryzen 7 7700
The Ryzen 7 7700 will have a maximum clock speed of up to 5.3 GHz, 40 MB of cache (32 MB L3 + 8 MB L3), 8 cores and 16 threads. The CPU will cost $329 US at retail, which is $70 US less than the Ryzen 7 7700X’s $399 US price. Given its 65W power budget, the Ryzen 7 7700 seems to be clocked only 100 MHz lower than the Ryzen 7 7700X.
AMD Ryzen 5 7600
The AMD Ryzen 5 7600 is the last processor on the list. It has 6 cores, 12 threads, 38 MB of cache (32 MB L3 + 6 MB L2), and a peak clock speed of up to 5.1 GHz. The Ryzen 5 7600X goes on sale for $299 US, which is $70 US more expensive than the CPU, which will go on sale for $229 US. The boost clock is 200 MHz slower than the device designated as “X.”
On the AM5 platform, the chips appear to provide the best performance for the money.
