The price of the Ryzen 7000 non-X CPUs has been confirmed. The reports regarding possible Ryzen 7000 prices were true. Pricing and specifications for the next Ryzen 7000 series, which is expected to arrive next year, are shown in slides from the embargoed presentation. These CPUs are from the 7000 non-X series and have a basic TDP of 65W.
AMD is working on three different models: the Ryzen 9 7900, the Ryzen 7 7700, and the Ryzen 5 7600. The Ryzen 9 7900 is a new 12-core CPU with a boost frequency of up to 5.4 GHz. The base frequency is said to be 3.7 GHz, which is nearly 1.0 GHz slower than the 7900X. The presentation indicates that this CPU would cost $429 and compete with the Intel Core i9-13900 and i9-12900 processors. It is vital to remember that the former has yet to be released.
The base frequency of the 8-core Ryzen 7 7700 non-X is 3.8 GHz, while the boost clock is 5.3 GHz. In comparison to the 7700X model, this has a base frequency of 700 MHz lower and a maximum frequency of 100 MHz lower. The $329 cost of this CPU puts it in direct competition with Intel’s Core i7-13700 and i7-12700K models. Six-core Ryzen 5 7600 non-X processors can now achieve a boosted rate of 5.1 GHz, with a base clock of 3.8 GHz (0.9 GHz slower than 7600X). This CPU would go for $229, competing with the Core i5-13600 and i5-12600.
Existing coolers created and marketed by AMD are compatible with the new Ryzen 7000 series as well because AM4 coolers are officially compatible with the new AM5 socket. The mentioned coolers—Wraith Prism and Wraith Stealth will be included with the 65W CPUs. Both will be included with Ryzen 5 7600, although the former will be standard on Ryzen 9 7900 and Ryzen 7 7700.
It may be difficult for AMD to sell these non-X SKUs at that proposed pricing in light of the recent price decrease for the Ryzen 7000 series. For an additional $20-30, more players can go for 170/105W variants instead. The whole embargo on Ryzen 7000 non-X series processors will be lifted on January 9th, which should be either the review date or the actual launch day. However, AMD will reveal these CPUs a few days earlier during the CES 2023 conference.
