AMD Ryzen 7000 ‘Zen 4’ Non-X Desktop CPUs Will Launch January 10th
AMD’s Ryzen 7000 ‘Zen 4’ Non-X desktop CPUs will hit retail shelves January 10th in three flavors.
AMD Ryzen 7000 ‘Zen 4’ Non-X CPUs Unveiled at CES 2023, Launching the Same Month
Last month, we reported that AMD was working on at least three new ‘Zen 4’ Non-X processors Ryzen 7000, a Ryzen 9 7900, a Ryzen 7 7700, and a Ryzen 5 7600. These three CPUs are designed for users Unlike the regular ones, the “X” series parts run at slightly lower clock speeds and offer much better pricing than the “x” variants as well. We’ve managed to confirm with our sources that AMD plans to unveil the chips at CES 2023 followed by a launch just a few days later on January 10th. This is when the chips will be available on retail shelves.
AMD Ryzen 9 7900 – 12 Zen 4 Cores for only $429
The AMD Ryzen 9 7900 will have 12 cores, 24 threads, 76MB of cache (64MB L3 + 12MB L3) and will feature a maximum clock speed of 5.4GHz. The CPU will retail for $429, a difference of $120 over the Ryzen 9 7900X. While the base clock remains to be seen, the boost clock sees a 200MHz drop, but given the price point this 12-core chip looks amazing and I can already see a lot of users upgrading to the $500 Zen 12-Core . 4 slices.
AMD Ryzen 7 7700 – 8 Core Gaming Champ for under $350
Next we have the Ryzen 7 7700 which will have 8 cores, 16 threads, 40MB of cache (32MB L3 + 8MB L3), and will feature a maximum clock speed of 5.3GHz. The CPU will retail for $329, a difference of $70 versus the Ryzen 7 7700X that retails for $399. The Ryzen 7 7700 seems to be clocked at just 100MHz lower than the Ryzen 7 7700X which is pretty impressive given its 65W power budget. Final TDP should come down around 90-100W due to the 1.375x multiplier for PPT.
AMD Ryzen 5 7600 – Making AM5 affordable for entry-level builders
Finally, we have the AMD Ryzen 5 7600 which will have 6 cores, 12 threads, 38MB of cache (32MB L3 + 6MB L2) and will have a maximum clock speed of 5.1GHz. The CPU will retail at $229, which is also $70 less than the Ryzen 5 7600X which retails for $299. The boost clock is 200MHz lower than the “X” chip. Based on the above:
- Ryzen 9 7900 12 Core – $120 cheaper vs. 7900X
- Ryzen 7 7700 8 Core – $70 cheaper for the 7700X
- Ryzen 5 7600 6 Core – $70 cheaper for the 7600X
Overall, the chips look like they will offer the best performance per dollar on the AM5 platform and we’ll also be looking at cheaper A620 motherboards by mid-2023. AMD Ryzen 7000X3D 3D V-Cache CPUs will also be heading to CES 2023 for a full unveiling.
