AMD's unofficially revealed their Ryzen 5 7600X, Ryzen 7 7700X, Ryzen 9 7900X, and Ryzen 9 7950X
Four planned Ryzen 7000 series CPU models have been uncovered by Videocardz, appearing in official AMD marketing resource files. These new processors are socket AM5 CPUs that are based on AMD's Zen 4 architecture, offering users higher clock speeds than their Zen 3 counterparts and various architectural enhancements.
AMD's unofficially revealed processors are the Ryzen 5 7600X, the Ryzen 7 7700X, the Ryzen 9 7900X, and the Ryzen 9 7950X. Currently, there are no signs of a Ryzen 7 7800X model, or any Ryzen 3 series processors.
The lack of a Ryzen 7 7800X could be a sign that AMD plans to launch their Ryzen 7000 series with aggressive pricing, or that AMD is leaving their Ryzen 7 7800X processor name for a future V-Cache enabled CPU model; the Ryzen 7 7800X3D perhaps? Either way, the lack of a Ryzen 7 7800X model suggests that AMD will be pricing their Ryzen 7 model aggressively, as AMD's Ryzen 7 X800X models have always been premium 8-core CPU models.
Currently, the clock speeds, core counts, and pricing of these new CPU models remain unknown. All-core clock speeds of 5GHz and above are expected, as are notable IPC increased. Both of these changes should deliver significant performance increases for AMD's new Ryzen 7000 series processors. That said, it remains to be seen how these new CPUs will compete with Intel's Alder Lake series CPUs and upcoming Raptor Lake series CPU models.
