AMD Ryzen 7000 non-X starts at $229
Pricing for Ryzen 7000 non-X processors has now been confirmed.
Rumors about possible Ryzen 7000 pricing were indeed true. Slides from the banned presentation reveal the pricing and specifications of the upcoming Ryzen 7000 series, which is expected to be released next year. Those processors are the so-called 7000 non-X series, which run at a base TDP of 65W.
AMD makes three SKUs: Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700 and Ryzen 5 7600. Starting with the Ryzen 9 7900, this is a new 12-core processor with a boost clock of up to 5.4GHz. The base clock is reported to be 3.7GHz, which is exactly 1.0GHz below the 7900X. According to the slide, this processor will cost $429 and will compete with the Intel Core i9-13900 and i9-12900 processors. It is important to note that the first one has not yet been released.
The 8-core Ryzen 7 7700 non-X has a base clock of 3.8 GHz and a boost of 5.3 GHz. That’s 700 MHz lower base and just 100 MHz lower peak frequency than the 7700X model. This processor will compete with the Intel Core i7-13700 and i7-12700K at a price of $329.
Finally, the 6-core Ryzen 5 7600 non-X gets a boost clock of up to 5.1GHz and a base of 3.8GHz (0.9GHz slower than the 7600X). This processor will sell for $229 and will compete with the Core i5-13600 and i5-12600 processors.
Since AM4 coolers are officially compatible with the new AM5 socket, existing coolers designed and sold by AMD are also compatible with the new Ryzen 7000 series. The 65W processors will be equipped with specified coolers called Wraith Prism and Wraith Stealth. The former will be added to the Ryzen 9 7900 and Ryzen 7 7700 processors, while the latter will be complemented by the Ryzen 5 7600.
Given the recent price cut for the Ryzen 7000 series, it may be very difficult for AMD to sell these non-X SKUs at those suggested prices. It looks like for just $20-$30 more gamers can opt for the 170/105W models instead.
The full embargo on the Ryzen 7000 non-X series will be lifted on January 9th, which should be either the review date or the actual launch date. However, AMD will announce these processors a few days early at the CES 2023 conference.
