AMD Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” CPUs listed online

AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs, based on the Zen 4 core architecture, have appeared at online retailers. All four CPUs have been listed at Canadian retailer PC-Canada with a preliminary price list.

AMD Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” CPUs appear in preliminary price list – flagship Ryzen 9 7950X listed for $892

The prices have been checked Momo_US and lists the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X in both tray and no-cooler SKUs. Below are the chips with their preliminary retailer prices:

Those prices are definitely on the high side, which is to be expected given that we’re looking at early offers, but previously Rumor has it that while the 8- and 6-core models could be cheaper than their predecessors, the high-core variants within the Ryzen 9 line could be more expensive.

AMD Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” Desktop CPU Lineup Preliminary listing from PC-Canada:

Comparing the prices with the existing processors from the same retailer, we can see that the Ryzen 9 7950X is priced $158 more than the Ryzen 9 5950X. The Ryzen 9 7900X costs CAD 13 less than the Ryzen 9 5900X, the Ryzen 7 7700X costs CAD 216 more than the Ryzen 7 5700X, while the price of the Ryzen 5 7600X is CAD 15 less than the Ryzen 5 5600X. With this in mind, we should definitely wait for the final prices, which only AMD knows at the moment, but we can count on them being finally released on August 29th.

So, before we dive into the core specs, we have to point out that the AMD Zen 4 architecture brings an 8-10% IPC boost, but most of the performance benefit comes from the higher clock speeds and a higher TDP that complements will each chip compared to the previous generation. AMD has highlighted an increase of >15% single-threaded, >35% multi-threaded, and >25% performance/watt when comparing Zen 4 vs. Zen 3 cores.

The CPUs feature an optimized cache redesign with double the L2 cache (1MB vs. 512KB), a shared L3 cache like the previous generation, support for DDR5 memory with EXPO (AMD’s Extended Profiles For Memory Overclocking) and PCIe Gen 5.0 graphics card and M.2 SSD support. With all that said, let’s move on to the specs.

AMD Ryzen 9 7950X 16 Core “Zen 4” Desktop CPU

Starting with the flagship of them all, we have the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X, which retains its healthy 16-core, 32-thread count from the previous two generations. The CPU will have an impressive base frequency of 4.5GHz and a boost clock of up to 5.7GHz, which should make it 200MHz faster than Intel’s Alder Lake Core i9-12900KS, which has a boost frequency of 5.5 GHz on a single core. It looks like AMD is squeezing every ounce of Hertz out of that 170W TDP (230W PPT) for the Ryzen 9 chips. As for the cache, the CPU has 80MB of which 64MB from L3 (32MB per CCD) and 16MB from L2 (1MB per core).

We don’t know the Ryzen 9 7950X’s price or performance yet, but based on clock speeds alone it should be a worthy successor to the Ryzen 9 5950X and easily outperform Intel’s current Core i9-12900K CPU.

AMD Ryzen 9 7900X 12 Core “Zen 4” Desktop CPU

Next we have another AMD Ryzen 9 chip, the 7900X, which as the name suggests would come with 12 cores and 24 threads. The CPU has an even higher base clock of 4.7 GHz and a boost clock adjusted to 5.6 GHz over a single core. The CPU keeps its 170 W TDP and gets 76 MB cache (64 MB L3 + 12 MB L2). The CPU will be positioned in the same range as the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X, but with performance that would shake the ground beneath the Core i7-12700K.

AMD Ryzen 7 7700X 8 Core “Zen 4” Desktop CPU

Moving on to the Ryzen 7 family, here we have the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X, an 8-core and 16-thread part. AMD is positioning this as the sweet spot for gamers and as such the CPU will have a base clock of 4.5GHz and a boost clock of 5.4GHz but at a lower TDP of 105W (142W PPT). The CPU gets a 40MB cache pool consisting of 32MB L3 from the single CCD and 8MB L2 from the Zen 4 cores.

It is interesting to mention that AMD has not yet released an update to a Ryzen 7 7800X chip. AMD probably wants to replace this part with a successor to the Ryzen 7 5800X3D with Zen 4 cores (3D V-Cache). If that was the case, we can expect an update to the CPU lineup later this year V-Cache parts have been confirmed for late Q4 2022 Launch by AMD itself. Also based on the segmentation alone, it looks like the Ryzen 7 7700X will be really affordable in the mainstream segment.

AMD Ryzen 5 7600X 6 Core “Zen 4” Desktop CPU

Last but not least, we have the cheapest chip (if you can call it that, but the pricing won’t reflect that), the Ryzen 5 7600X. This will be a 6-core and 12-thread part that will have a high base clock of 4.7GHz and a single-core boost frequency of 5.3GHz. The CPU also runs at a TDP of 105W (142W PPT), which is a lot higher than its 65W predecessor, but again, that’s the sacrifice you’ll have to make to reach the higher clock speeds. The CPU carries 38 MB cache, which comes from 32 MB L3 and 6 MB L2 on chip.

The AMD Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” desktop CPUs are expected to launch on September 15th, with a pre-announcement scheduled for August 29th detailing final pricing and specifications. we The specs leaked a few days ago So it looks like the main focus should be on the performance specifications and the value (price) these chips have to offer.
