On January 10, AMD will release Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” desktop processors for non-X computers.
At CES 2023, AMD will unveil its Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” non-X CPUs, and they will be on sale the very same month.
We announced a month ago that AMD was working on at least three new Ryzen 7000 ‘Zen 4’ Non-X CPUs, the Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700, and the Ryzen 5 7600. These CPUs are all part of the Zen 4 architecture.
These three central processing units (CPUs) were developed with standard consumers in mind. Unlike the components in the ‘X’ series, they operate at clock rates that are marginally slower but also provide significantly lower pricing than the ‘x’ variations do.
We verified this information with our sources, and they told us that AMD intends to introduce the chips at CES 2023, and then only a few days later, on the 10th of January, they will begin selling them. When this date arrives, shoppers can find the chips in stores.
AMD Ryzen 9 7900 – 12 Zen 4 Cores For Just $429 US
The AMD Ryzen 9 7900 will have a maximum clock speed of up to 5.4 GHz and will be equipped with 12 cores, 24 threads, 76 MB of cache (64 MB L3 + 12 MB L3), and a total memory capacity of 76 MB.
The price of the processor will be $429 in the United States, which is a difference of $120 in comparison to the Ryzen 9 7900X. However, given the price point, this 12-core chip looks incredible, and I can already see many users upgrading to this sub-$500 US 12-Core Zen 4 chip. While the base clock is still unknown, the boost clock has seen a reduction of 200 MHz.
Next is the Ryzen 7 7700, which will have a maximum clock speed of up to 5.3 GHz, 32 MB of L3 cache, and 8 MB of L3 cache in addition to its 8 cores and 16 threads. The total amount of cache will be 40 MB.
The Central Processing Unit will sell for $329 in the United States, which is $70 less than the Ryzen 7 7700X, which sells for $399 in the United States. Amazingly, the Ryzen 7 7700’s clock speed is just 100 MHz lower than the Ryzen 7 7700X’s clock speed, given that it only consumes 65 watts of electricity. Given that the PPT has a multiplier of 1.375, the final TDP should settle between 90 and 100W.
With the Ryzen 5 7600, AMD is bringing down the price of AM5 for entry-level builders.
In conclusion, we have the AMD Ryzen 5 7600, which will have a maximum clock speed of up to 5.1 GHz, 38 MB of cache (32 MB L3 + 6 MB L2), 6 cores, 12 threads, and a total of 32 MB of L3 cache and 6 MB of L2 cache.
The retail price of the processor will be $229 in the United States, which is $70 less than the price at which the Ryzen 5 7600X can be purchased (which is $299). The boost clock operates at a frequency that is 200 MHz slower than the X chip. In light of the preceding:
- Ryzen 9 7900 12 Core is cheaper by $120 in the US than the 7900X.
- Ryzen 7 7700 8 Core is $70 cheaper in the United States than the 7700X.
- Ryzen 5 7600, which has six cores, is $70 cheaper in the US than the 7600X.
Overall, the chips seem like they will provide the best performance for the dollar value on the AM5 platform. Additionally, by the middle of 2023, we will be looking at cheaper A620 motherboards. Additionally, the full unveiling of AMD Ryzen 7000X3D 3D V-Cache CPUs is scheduled at CES 2023.
