The latest desktop SKUs for AMD’s Ryzen 7000 processors with 65W TDP are now available for purchase at stores. Today, AMD introduced three new desktop CPUs, all of which have the same default TDP of 65W. There will be three new Ryzen 7000 variants available, all of which will be paired with a cooling system from AMD (Wrath Prism or Wrath Stealth, depending on the model).
The most powerful 65W CPU is the Ryzen 9 7900, a 12-core variant with a maximum boost frequency of 5.4 GHz. This processor will retail at $429 or €479. In addition, AMD will release a Ryzen 7 7700 with eight cores and a maximum boost frequency of 5.3 GHz. This processor will be priced at $329 US or €369 EU. The slowest component is the 6-core Ryzen 5 7600, which will cost $229 or €259.
Overall, the new series of Ryzen 7000 non-X performance outperforms its higher TDP rivals and offers a chance to save some money, for example, on any of the still-expensive AM5 motherboards. The 65W variants will be made available with the 105W/170W and forthcoming 120W versions. Next month, AMD will unveil the Ryzen 7000X3D series, although the company has not yet disclosed price information.
