In brief: a few leaked slides detailing AMD’s near-term roadmap have strike the internet and point out the imminent launch of three brand new non-X desktop computer CPUs. The trio of potato chips consist of the* that is( 9 7900, the Ryzen 7 7700 and the Ryzen 5 7600.
The Ryzen 9 7900 is said to feature 12 cores / 24 threads, 76MB of cache and boasts clock speeds up to 5.4GHz. The Ryzen 7 7700, meanwhile, will pack eight cores / 16 threads, 40MB of cache and speeds of up to 5.3GHz while the Ryzen 5 7600 reportedly carries six cores / 12 threads, 38MB of cache and clocks of up to 5.1GHz. Base clock speeds were not referenced in the slides that are leaked
In another slip, AMD compared the* that is( 9 7900 to its own Ryzen 9 5900X across a series of games and creator-focused benchmarks. The new chip came out on top in every test presented, by as much as 31 percent in DOTA 2 and up to 48 percent in Corona Renderer.
Pricing is listed at $429, $329 and $229, respectively, and all three feature a TDP rating of 65 watts.
Over on Newegg, you can currently pick up similar chips that are x-based $463.99, $346.98 and $248.99, definition you would save yourself $34.99, $17.98 or $19.99 by using the variant that is non-Xbased on the MSRPs in the slides). Launch is reportedly set for January 10, 2023, which is just a couple of days after CES.
Given the price that is meager, there isn’t a lot of motivation to choose a non-X processor chip unless you’re actually seeking to hold energy usage (and hence, temperatures) down and also have zero interest in overclocking. Personally, I’d spring for the X variation and counterbalance the cost that is extra going with a cheaper case or a slightly lower-tier motherboard that leaves off some bells and whistles I might not need.
Speaking of, CES 2023 officially kicks off on January 5 and runs through January 8 in Las Vegas. With any luck, AMD, Intel and a host of other hardware makers will have plenty of news to share starting week that is next
