AMD will launch the Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7800X and Ryzen 5 7600X first

We learned a few days back that AMD may release the Ryzen 7000 on September 15. We were clear that the Ryzen 9 7950X would be the company's new top-of-the-line CPU.

Although it has not yet been confirmed, new evidence indicates that AMD will introduce the Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7800X, Ryzen 5 7600X first.

As you can see, there are huge gaps in that list, as there is no Ryzen 7 7700X, which should be a cheaper alternative to the Ryzen 7 7800X, and no Ryzen 5 7600.

On the other hand, there is no sign of the Ryzen 3 7000, which should be the next-generation Core i3 opponent (Raptor Lake-S).

If this starting grid is confirmed, AMD will refresh a portion of its line of high-performance CPUs for general consumption, with a concentration on the high-end and "premium" mid-range.

The Ryzen 9 7950X has everything necessary to become the most powerful processor on the market, except that the IPC increases of the Intel Core i9-13900K and the increase in frequencies end up working "a miracle," allowing high-performance cores to compensate for the lower power of high-efficiency cores.

In any event, we have an epic battle ahead of us between both businesses, and everything signals that this is going to be a good year to renew a processor, and possibly also to totally change the PC, because the prices of graphics cards and other components are reducing dramatically.

Ryzen 9 7900X

  • Zen 4 architecture at 5nm from TSMC.
  • Two eight-core chiplets each at 5nm.
  • 6nm I/O chiplet from TSMC.
  • 12 cores and 24 threads at a maximum of 5.4 GHz (turbo mode).
  • Integrated GPU based on RDNA2 architecture.
  • 64MB of L3 cache.
  • 12MB of L2 cache.
  • TDP up to 170 watts.

Ryzen 7 7800X

  • Zen 4 architecture at 5nm from TSMC.
  • An octa-core chiplet at 5nm.
  • 6nm I/O chiplet from TSMC.
  • 8 cores and 16 threads at a maximum of 5.3 GHz (turbo mode).
  • Integrated GPU based on RDNA2 architecture.
  • 32MB of L3 cache.
  • 8MB of L2 cache.
  • 105-watt TDP.

Ryzen 5 7600X

  • Zen 4 architecture at 5nm from TSMC.
  • A chiplet with six active cores at 5nm.
  • 6nm I/O chiplet from TSMC.
  • 6 cores and 12 threads at a maximum of 5.1 GHz (turbo mode).
  • Integrated GPU based on RDNA2 architecture.
  • 32MB of L3 cache.
  • 6MB of L2 cache.
  • 105-watt TDP.

Remember that in order to use a Ryzen 7000 processor, you will need to purchase a new motherboard with socket AM5 and DDR5 memory, as they will not function with socket AM4 and will not allow you to use DDR4 memory.
