Ryzen 9 7900 on par with the 12900KS, Ryzen 7 7700, and Ryzen 5 7600 cover the mainstream

Benchmarks for all AMD Ryzen 7000 Non-X 65W desktop CPUs including Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700 and Ryzen 5 7600 have been leaked.

AMD Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700, Ryzen 5 7600 65W CPU Benchmarks Leak, Ryzen 7000 Non-X Offers Solid Performance at a Much Better Value

The AMD Ryzen 7000 Non-X Desktop CPU family will consist of three chipsets, the Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700, and Ryzen 5 7600. These CPUs are scheduled to launch on January 10th and we’ve already seen their pricing and specs leak here.

AMD Ryzen 9 7900 – 12 Zen 4 Cores for only $429

The AMD Ryzen 9 7900 will have 12 cores, 24 threads, 76MB of cache (64MB L3 + 12MB L3) and will feature a maximum clock speed of 5.4GHz. The CPU will retail for $429, a difference of $120 over the Ryzen 9 7900X. While the base clock remains to be seen, the boost clock sees a 200MHz drop, but given the price point this 12-core chip looks amazing and I can already see a lot of users upgrading to the $500 Zen 12-Core . 4 slices. AMD will position the chip against the Intel Core i9-13900 and Core i9-12900 CPUs.

AMD Ryzen 7 7700 – 8 Core Gaming Champ for under $350

Next we have the Ryzen 7 7700 which will have 8 cores, 16 threads, 40MB of cache (32MB L3 + 8MB L3), and will feature a maximum clock speed of 5.3GHz. The CPU will retail for $329, a difference of $70 versus the Ryzen 7 7700X that retails for $399. The Ryzen 7 7700 seems to be clocked at just 100MHz lower than the Ryzen 7 7700X which is pretty impressive given its 65W power budget. Final TDP should come down around 90-100W due to the 1.375x multiplier for PPT. The Ryzen 7 7700 will be pitted against the Core i7-13700 and Core i7-12700.

Finally, we have the AMD Ryzen 5 7600 which will have 6 cores, 12 threads, 38MB of cache (32MB L3 + 6MB L2) and will have a maximum clock speed of 5.1GHz. The CPU will retail at $229, which is also $70 less than the Ryzen 5 7600X which retails for $299. The boost clock is 200MHz lower than the “X” chip. The Ryzen 5 7600 will be pitted against Core i5-13600 and Core i5-12600 CPUs.

Based on the above:

  • Ryzen 9 7900 12 Core – $120 cheaper vs. 7900X
  • Ryzen 7 7700 8 Core – $70 cheaper for the 7700X
  • Ryzen 5 7600 6 Core – $70 cheaper for the 7600X

In terms of performance, the AMD Ryzen 9 7900 CPU scored 2121 points in the single-core and 18607 points in the stock multi-core tests while the overclock results show a performance increase of 5%, closing the gap with the Ryzen 9 7900X. The CPU is also on par with the Intel Core i9-12900KS in Geekbench 5 benchmark.

The AMD Ryzen 7 7700 scores 2,062 points in single-core and 12,685 points in multi-core tests and gets minimal improvement in single-core tests with overclocking, but multi-threading gets a 5 percent performance boost. Finally, we have the Ryzen 5 7600 which scores 2,012 points in single-core tests and up to 11,326 points in multi-core tests.

Based on performance scores, the AMD Ryzen 9 7900 processor delivers 97% of the performance of the Ryzen 9 7900X, the Ryzen 7 7700 delivers 92% of the performance of the Ryzen 7 7700X, and the Ryzen 5 7600 delivers 98% of the performance of the Ryzen 5 7600X. This is a very impressive offering, the leak also confirms that overclocking is supported by these chips which makes them a much better value which should also consume lower power and offer higher efficiency at stock operation.
