AMD Ryzen 7000 'Zen 4' Non-X Desktop CPUs to Launch on 10th January 1

AMD's Ryzen 7000 'Zen 4' Non-X Desktop CPUs will be hitting retail shelves on the 10th of January in three flavors.

AMD Ryzen 7000 'Zen 4' Non-X CPUs Unveil at CES 2023, Launch The Same Month

Last month, we reported that AMD was working on at least three new Ryzen 7000 'Zen 4' Non-X CPUs, the Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700, and the Ryzen 5 7600. These three CPUs are designed for mainstream users and unlike the 'X' series parts, run at slightly lower clock speeds and deliver far better prices than the 'x' variants too. We have managed to confirm with our sources that AMD's planning to unveil the chips at CES 2023 followed by a launch just a few days later on the 10th of January. This is when the chips will be available on retail shelves.

AMD Ryzen 9 7900 - 12 Zen 4 Cores For Just $429 US

The AMD Ryzen 9 7900 will feature 12 cores, 24 threads, and 76 MB of cache (64 MB L3 + 12 MB L3) and will feature a maximum clock speed of up to 5.4 GHz. The CPU will retail at $429 US which is a difference of $120 US versus the Ryzen 9 7900X. While the base clock remains to be seen, the boost clock sees a 200 MHz reduction but given the price point, this 12-core chip looks incredible & I can already see a lot of users upgrading to this sub-$500 US 12-Core Zen 4 chip.

AMD Ryzen 7 7700 - 8 Core Gaming Champ Under $350 US

Next up, we have the Ryzen 7 7700 which will feature 8 cores, 16 threads 40 MB of cache (32 MB L3 + 8 MB L3), and will feature a maximum clock speed of up to 5.3 GHz. The CPU will retail for $329 US which is a difference of $70 US versus the Ryzen 7 7700X which retails at $399 US. The Ryzen 7 7700 seems to be clocked just 100 MHz lower than the Ryzen 7 7700X which is impressive given its 65W power budget. The final TDP should fall around 90-100W given the 1.375x multiplier for the PPT.

Lastly, we have the AMD Ryzen 5 7600 which will feature 6 cores, 12 threads, 38 MB of cache (32 MB L3 + 6 MB L2) and will feature a maximum clock speed of up to 5.1 GHz. The CPU will hit retail at $229 US which is also $70 US lower than the Ryzen 5 7600X which retails at $299 US. The boost clock is 200 MHz lower than the 'X' chip. Based on the above:

  • Ryzen 9 7900 12 Core- $120 US cheaper vs 7900X
  • Ryzen 7 7700 8 Core- $70 US cheaper vs 7700X
  • Ryzen 5 7600 6 Core - $70 US cheaper vs 7600X

Overall, the chips sound like they will offer the best performance per dollar value on the AM5 platform and we will also be looking at cheaper A620 motherboards by the mid of 2023. AMD Ryzen 7000X3D 3D V-Cache CPUs will also be headed to CES 2023 for a full unveil.
