AMD plans to release its new Ryzen 7000 CPUs next year, according to chi11eddog, a well-known hardware leaker. He has claimed to have access to information on three unreleased Ryzen 7000 CPUs. We’ve been reporting on the 7000 non-X series for at least a month, and this is the first update to that coverage.
AMD is expected to introduce three variants: the Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700, and Ryzen 5 7600 SKU. The most notable change from current versions is the expected decrease in default power consumption of these components from 170W to 65W.
The Ryzen 9 7900 is the new component that has been missing from leaks thus far. According to the latest information, this component has 12 cores and a boost frequency of up to 5.4 GHz, which is 200 MHz slower than the X model. This CPU is expected to cost $429.
Moreover, the 8-core Ryzen 7 7700 is rumored to feature a boost of 5.3 GHz, making it only 100 MHz shy of the X model. With MSRP at $329, it would naturally cost 70 USD less, which sounds like an excellent price.
The price of a 6-core Ryzen 5 7600 is said to be $229, which is also $70 less than the price of the X-variant. This SKU would have a boost clock that is 200 MHz slower, with a maximum clock speed of 5.1 GHz. The release of all three SKUs is scheduled for the first quarter of 2023. As a result, it is fair to infer that AMD will unveil these new CPUs at CES 2023.
7900 (5.4G max):Y23 Q1 $429
7700 (5.3G max):Y23 Q1 $329
7600 (5.1G max):Y23 Q1 $229
