According to leaked presentations, AMD will officially introduce its Ryzen 7000 Non-X 65W Desktop CPUs on January 10th. The slides also show some performance differences between the Ryzen 9 7900 and the Ryzen 9 5900X. On January 10, 2023, AMD will introduce three new models in its new Ryzen 7000 Non-X Desktop CPU family: the Ryzen 9 7900 with 12 cores, the Ryzen 7 7700 with 8 cores, and the Ryzen 5 7600 with 6 cores. The three new models will use the Zen 4 core architecture and have a TDP of 65W, which is lower than the previous series, which had a TDP of up to 170W.
AMD Ryzen 9 7900
The AMD Ryzen 9 7900 processor will have 12 cores, 24 threads, 76 MB of cache (64 MB L3 + 12 MB L3), and a maximum clock speed of 5.4 GHz. The CPU will cost $429 USD, which is $120 USD more than the Ryzen 9 7900X. While the base clock remains unknown, the boost clock has been reduced by 200 MHz, but given the price point, this 12-core processor looks great, and I can already see a lot of people upgrading to this sub-$500 US 12-Core Zen 4 chip. AMD will place the processor alongside the Intel Core i9-13900 and Core i9-12900 CPUs.
AMD Ryzen 7 7700
The Ryzen 7 7700 comes next, with 8 cores, 16 threads, 40 MB of cache (32 MB L3 + 8 MB L3), and a maximum clock speed of up to 5.3 GHz. The CPU will cost $329 USD, which is $70 USD less than the Ryzen 7 7700X, which costs $399 USD. Given its 65W power budget, the Ryzen 7 7700 appears to be clocked just 100 MHz lower than the Ryzen 7 7700X. Given the 1.375x multiplier for the PPT, the total TDP should be approximately 90-100W. The Ryzen 7 7700 will compete with the Core i7-13700 and Core i7-12700 processors.
AMD Ryzen 5 7600
The AMD Ryzen 5 7600 will have 6 cores, 12 threads, 38 MB of cache (32 MB L3 + 6 MB L2), and a maximum clock speed of up to 5.1 GHz.
The CPU will cost $229 USD, which is $70 USD less than the Ryzen 5 7600X, which costs $299 USD. The boost clock of the ‘X’ chip is 200 MHz slower. The Ryzen 5 7600 will compete with the Core i5-13600 and Core i5-12600 CPUs.
The graphic, courtesy of VideoCardz, reveals that each of the three processors will have three prices. The Ryzen 5 7600 will cost $229, the Ryzen 7 7700 will cost $329, and the premium Ryzen 9 7900 will cost $429. This is less expensive than the Ryzen 7000 X-series, which costs roughly $20 more.
Buyers should be warned, however, that the new Ryzen 9 7900 performs 119% higher in twelve tested games at 1080p resolution than the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X chip. The Ryzen 9 7900 machine was outfitted with DDR5-6000 memory for the following comparisons, whereas the Ryzen 9 5900X PC was outfitted with DDR4-3600 memory.
In terms of performance, the two processors evaluated are roughly equivalent in specifications. Nonetheless, the newer processor will have a lower base clock, boost clock, and TDP than the X-series devices. The launch will occur one week after the opening of the CES 2023 show in Las Vegas, Nevada, next year. Over the next few years, the company will share technologies and information on advances.
