AMD slides reveal January 10 launch date for non-X collection Ryzen 7000 CPUs

Briefly: A collection of leaked slides detailing AMD’s near-term roadmap have hit the net and level to the approaching launch of three new non-X desktop CPUs. The trio of chips embody the Ryzen 9 7900, the Ryzen 7 7700 and the Ryzen 5 7600.

The Ryzen 9 7900 is alleged to characteristic 12 cores / 24 threads, 76MB of cache and boasts clock speeds as much as 5.4GHz. The Ryzen 7 7700, in the meantime, will pack eight cores / 16 threads, 40MB of cache and speeds of as much as 5.3GHz whereas the Ryzen 5 7600 reportedly carries six cores / 12 threads, 38MB of cache and clocks of as much as 5.1GHz. Base clock speeds weren’t referenced within the leaked slides.

In one other slide, AMD in contrast the Ryzen 9 7900 to its personal Ryzen 9 5900X throughout a collection of video games and creator-focused benchmarks. The brand new chip got here out on prime in each check introduced, by as a lot as 31 p.c in DOTA 2 and as much as 48 p.c in Corona Renderer.

Pricing is listed at $429, $329 and $229, respectively, and all three characteristic a TDP score of 65 watts.

Over on Newegg, you possibly can at present choose up comparable X-based chips for $463.99, $346.98 and $248.99, which means you’ll save $34.99, $17.98 or $19.99 by going with the non-X variant (based mostly on the MSRPs within the slides). Launch is reportedly set for January 10, 2023, which is simply a few days after CES.

Given the meager worth variations, there’s not a ton of incentive to go along with a non-X chip until you’re actually trying to hold energy consumption (and thus, temperatures) down and have zero curiosity in overclocking. Personally, I might spring for an X variant and offset the additional price by going with a less expensive case or a barely lower-tier motherboard that leaves off some bells and whistles I won’t want.

Talking of, CES 2023 formally kicks off on January 5 and runs by means of January 8 in Las Vegas. Optimistically, AMD, Intel and a bunch of different {hardware} makers could have loads of information to share beginning subsequent week.
