AMD Ryzen 7000 non-X series now has a release date
The chipset confirms the price and release date for the upcoming Ryzen 7000 CPUs.
As mentioned before, AMD is launching its new Ryzen processors for the AM5 socket next month. The company is preparing three models: 12-core Ryzen 9 7900, 8-core Ryzen 7 7700 and 6-core Ryzen 5 7600, all based on Zen4 architecture. The series features the same core count as their X variants, but they have a much lower default TDP of 65W.
According to the slide, all three CPUs were launched on January 10th at $429, $329, and $329, respectively. And given the recent price cuts on the 7000X models, that price doesn’t sound particularly great. For $20 more, one can find “unlocked” 7900X or 7700X models. If AMD sticks to that price at launch, the faster six-core 7600X will cost just $10.

The main selling point of the new CPUs is lower power. According to another chip, an AMD 65W 7900X CPU paired with DDR5-6000 memory will be 19% faster in games on average than a 105W Ryzen 9 5900X based on Zen3 architecture using DDR4-3600 memory.
Both processors have been tested in 12 games at 1080p and work in conjunction with the Radeon RX 6950XT NITRO+ from Sapphire. The Ryzen 9 7900’s advantage over the 5900X varies from 103% (Assassin’s Creed Valhalla) to 134% (Far Cry 6).
