AMD has revealed the official details, prices, specs and release date for its new Ryzen 7000 CPU series. In addition, the red team shared some performance figures for these new CPUs (though not any framerate/traditional benchmarks).
AMD will launch four new CPU models on September 27th. These CPU models are the Ryzen 5 7600X, the Ryzen 7 7700X, the Ryzen 9 7900X and the Ryzen 7950X.
The Ryzen 5 7600X will have 6 cores and 12 threads, 38MB of cache, a TDP of 105W, and will be priced at $299. On the other hand, the Ryzen 7 7700X will have 8 cores and 16 threads, 40MB of cache, a TDP of 105W, and an MSRP of $399. The AMD Ryzen 9 7900X will have 12 CPU cores and 24 threads, 76MB of cache, a TDP of 170W, and an MSRP of $549. And lastly, the Ryzen 9 7950X model will have 16 cores and 32 threads, 80MB of cache, a TDP of 170W, and will be priced at $699.
AMD claims that the new Ryzen series will offer a 13% IPC performance boost, as well as up to 29% performance improvements in single-core performance.
AMD also shared some graphs, in which it claimed that the Ryzen 9 7950X can be up to 35% faster than the Ryzen 9 5950X in Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
Lastly, the red team claims that the Ryzen 9 7950X is faster by 5% on average than Intel’s i9 12900K.
Naturally, we suggest waiting until the first third-party benchmarks from various media outlets hit the Internet. My guess is that this will happen a couple of days prior to the official release of these new CPUs!
