X Does not Mark The Spot, Ryzen 7600, 7700, And 7900 CPUs
Meet AMD’s 65W Zen 4 Processors
The unique Zen 4 processors all had TDPs over 100W, with some nearer to 200W making them somewhat inappropriate for small type issue builds. To rectify that hole, AMD have launched three new processors with a 65W TDP for these in search of a much less toasty construct. The Ryzen 5 7600, Ryzen 7 7700, Ryzen 9 7900 all have that very same TDP, assist DDR5 and ship with both the Wraith Stealth or Wraith Prism cooler within the field.
The Ryzen 5 7600 is clocked somewhat decrease than it’s X bearing companion, 5.1GHz peak versus 5.3GHz however the cache and built-in GPU stay the identical. The Ryzen 7 7700 loses 100MHz off it’s enhance comparatively, working at 5.3GHz however as with the earlier chip all different specs stay the identical. Lastly the Ryzen 9 7900 is down to five.4GHz from 5.6GHz however aside from that matches the Ryzen 9 7900X.
Tweaktown tested all three against Intel and AMD’s latest and greatest processors, in addition to some from the earlier era. When gaming at 1080p you’re unlikely to see any distinction, and whereas the chips do properly on the opposite assessments, they aren’t fairly as quick as their toasty brethren.
The costs counsel AMD considers these processors to be a unique breed from the X collection processors. At $229, $329, and $429 respectively they’re priced inside about $10 of the CPUs bearing very related names. If energy consumption and thermals usually are not a significant concern you’re finest off with the X, however if you’re constructing in a SFF case, these are a superior alternative.
