Benchmarks for all three AMD Ryzen 7000 Non-X 65W Desktop CPUs, including the Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700, and Ryzen 5 7600, have leaked.
The AMD Ryzen 7000 Non-X Desktop CPU family will include three processors: the Ryzen 9 7900, the Ryzen 7 7700, and the Ryzen 5 7600. These CPUs are set to be released on January 10th, and their prices and specifications have already leaked online.
AMD Ryzen 9 7900 with 12 Zen 4 cores for $429 USD
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 chip looks incredible, and I can already see a lot of users upgrading to this sub-$500 US 12-Core Zen 4 chip. AMD will place the chip alongside the Intel Core i9-13900 and Core i9-12900 CPUs.
AMD Ryzen 7 7700 – 8 Core Gaming Champ for Less Than $350 USD
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 final TDP should be around 90-100W. The Ryzen 7 7700 will compete with the Core i7-13700 and Core i7-12700 processors.
AMD Ryzen 5 7600 – Bringing AM5 to Entry-Level Builders
Finally, 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 on the ‘X’ chip is 200 MHz slower. The Ryzen 5 7600 will compete with the Core i5-13600 and Core i5-12600 CPUs.
Based on the above:
- Ryzen 9 7900 12 Core- $120 US cheaper vs 7900X
- Ryzen 7 7700 8 Core- $70 US cheaper vs 7700X
- Ryzen 5 7600 6 Core – $70 US cheaper vs 7600X
At stock, the AMD Ryzen 9 7900 CPU scores 2121 points in single-core tests and 18607 points in multi-core tests, while overclocked results show a 5% performance boost, closing the gap with the Ryzen 9 7900X. In the Geekbench 5 benchmark, the CPU performs similarly to Intel’s Core i9-12900KS.
The AMD Ryzen 7 7700 scores 2062 points in single-core tests and 12685 points in multi-core tests. Overclocking results in a minor improvement in single-core performance but a 5% improvement in multi-threaded performance. Finally, the Ryzen 5 7600 gets 2012 points in single-core tests and up to 11326 points in multi-core tests.
According to the performance results, the AMD Ryzen 9 7900 outperforms the Ryzen 9 7900X by 97%, the Ryzen 7 7700 outperforms the Ryzen 7 7700X by 92%, and the Ryzen 5 7600 outperforms the Ryzen 5 7600X by 98%. This is a very impressive showcase, and the leak also confirms that these chips support overclocking, making them a far better value that should also consume low power and offer higher efficiency at stock operation.
Overall, the chips appear to offer the best performance per dollar value on the AM5 platform, and we may see cheaper A620 motherboards by the middle of 2023. AMD Ryzen 7000X3D 3D V-Cache CPUs will also be unveiled at CES 2023. The Non-X processors will be available in stores on January 10th.
