AMD officially confirmed the release of Ryzen 7000 processors this year a few months ago, and now the characteristics of the four main models of the line have appeared on the Web – Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7800X and Ryzen 5 7600X. While it’s too early to talk about pricing at this stage, the new details are definitely interesting to consider.
Alas, there is no consensus regarding the parameters of the Ryzen 9 7950X: it is supposed to have 16 or 24 cores. But the second option is extremely unlikely, since the size of the package, compared to AM4 processors, does not change, and it will be very problematic to fit four chiplets (three Zen 4, each with eight cores, plus one I / O die) into it. So the most likely option is to save 16 cores in the new flagship.
Along with this, the frequencies will still increase. The source is talking about 5.4 GHz. TDP was 105 watts in standard mode, maximum – 170 watts. AMD’s new flagship is expected to cost $900. In this case, the Ryzen 9 7950X will be $100 more expensive than the Ryzen 9 5950X at launch.
Ryzen 9 7900X. Here, too, options are still allowed: 12 cores and 24 threads or 16 cores and 32 threads. It is expected to have a maximum frequency of 5.3GHz, a TDP of 105-170W, and a price of $650. Based on the difference in the estimated price, you should still expect 12 cores, not 16, otherwise the Ryzen 9 7900X will select buyers from the flagship model.
It is easier with the other two processors – here, in terms of characteristics, everything is more clear. The Ryzen 7 7800X is credited with 8 cores with a maximum frequency of 5.2 GHz, 16 threads, a TDP of 105 W and a price of $500. The Ryzen 5 7600X, which replaces the hit Ryzen 5 5600X, will keep six cores. The frequency will be 5.1 GHz, TDP – 65 W, and the price – $ 350.
