AMD's reportedly preparing Ryzen 7900, 7700, and 7600 non-X processors for Q1 2023
Rumour has it that AMD are preparing to launch cheaper Ryzen 7000 series processors, offering PC builders the benefits of AMD's Zen 4 architecture at lower prices and a minor decrease in single-threaded performance.
According to a leaker called chi11eddog, AMD are planning to release three new budget-oriented processors in Q1 2023, their 12-core Ryzen 9 7900, their eight-core Ryzen 7 7700, and their six-core Ryzen 5 7600. All of these processors are dramatically cheaper than their X-series counterparts, feature 65W TDPs, and feature boost clock speeds that are between 100 MHz and 200 MHz lower than their X-series counterparts.
AMD's Ryzen 5 7600 and Ryzen 7 7700 appear to be $70 cheaper than their X-series counterparts, with the Ryzen 7 7700 being only $30 more expensive than AMD's Ryzen 5 7600X. Simply put, AMD's new Ryzen 7000 non-X processors are designed to offer consumers more value, making them much stronger rivals to Intel's 13th Generation Raptor Lake CPU lineup.
With the Ryzen 9 7900, AMD are offering customers four additional cores for $30 more than AMD's existing Ryzen 7 7700X. That's a huge upgrade, especially after considering the fact that both CPUs feature the same 5.4 GHz clock speeds.
If AMD are indeed releasing these new processors in Q1 2023, AMD will likely be revealing these new processors at CES 2023 in January. Rumour has it that AMD also plans to revealed V-Cache Enhanced Ryzen 7000X3D processors in early 2023, giving AMD a new high-end offering for consumers.
