AMD launches Ryzen 7000, the world’s best gaming processors

Amd Ryzen 7000 Lisa Su

At a conference last night, AMD finally officially launched its new Ryzen 7000 desktop processors. They promise a significant jump in performance over the previous generation.

Almost two years after the launch of the Ryzen 5000, AMD has just lifted the veil on its new series of chips. Ryzen 7000 “Raphael”, based on the new Zen 4 architecture engraved in 5nm by TSMC. We also find a new AM5 platform with the X670 + X670E motherboards, which inaugurates the support of the DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5.0 lanes for AMD.

The first four CPUs The high-end Ryzen 7000 will be available on September 27while we will have to wait October for B660 motherboards. These are the Ryzen 5 7600X, Ryzen 7 7700X, Ryzen 9 7900X, and Ryzen 9 7950X. So AMD is using the same strategy it used for the 5000-series launch, that is, lower-end processors aimed at consumer and budget PCs will follow next year. For those wondering why the processors left out the number 6, it’s because the 6000 series is for laptops only.

What are the new Ryzen 7000 processors?

AMD unveiled four new Ryzen 7000 processors. Here are the different models and their technical characteristics.

  • Ryzen 9 7950X: 16 cores/32 threads, with a base frequency of 4.5 GHz, a boost clock of 5.7 GHz, a TDP of 170 W and 80 MB of total cache. $699
  • Ryzen 9 7900X: 12 cores/24 threads, with a base frequency of 4.7 GHz, a boost clock of 5.6 GHz, a TDP of 170 W and 76 MB of total cache. $459
  • Ryzen 7 7700X: 8 cores/16 threads, with a base frequency of 4.5 GHz, a boost clock of 5.4 GHz, a TDP of 105 W and 40 MB of total cache. $399
  • Ryzen 5 7600X: 6 cores/12 threads, with a base frequency of 4.7 GHz, a boost clock of 5.3 GHz, a TDP of 105 W and 38 MB of total cache. $299

As for the prices, these therefore have not changed compared to the previous generation. The recommended prices in France would be slightly higher, we imagine that, as is often the case in recent months, resellers will apply higher prices at launch. These are the prices you can expect from us.

  • AMD Ryzen 5 7600X: €314.90
  • AMD Ryzen 7 7700X: €459.90
  • AMD Ryzen 9 7900X: €549.90
  • AMD Ryzen 9 7950X: €849.90

The Ryzen 7000 are much faster than Intel chips

According to AMD, its new Zen 4 microarchitecture offers 13% increase in instructions per clock (IPC) and an increase of about 30% of base clock speeds, which increase by around 1 GHz over the entire range. Thanks to these performance improvements, the company claims that the new Ryzen 9 7950X, which is at the top of the range, offers higher content creation performance than an Intel Core i9-12900K.

Ryzen 7000 Performance

The most impressive thing is that he does it with a 47% higher efficiency per watt, resulting in much better energy efficiency. Additionally, the Ryzen 7970X offers 11% faster single-core performance and 44% faster multi-core performance compared to rival 12th Gen Intel Alder Lake.

AMD also claims that Ryzen 7000 processors are approximately 29% faster than Ryzen 5000 models for single-core tasks, and the performance increase reaches 49% when using all 16 cores of Ryzen 9 chips.

AMD dominates in games thanks to Ryzen 7000 chips

Compared to the Ryzen 5950X, the 7950X offers an average of 15% more performance in popular games at 1080p, AMD revealed. We are entitled to a 32% performance increase in DOTA 2, 35% in Shadow of the Tome Raider, 6% in Borderlands 3, and 13% in CS:GO compared to Ryzen 9 5950X.

To make it clear to the public that its new chips were the best in the world at gaming, AMD pitted its “worst” processor, the new Ryzen 5 7600X, against Intel’s “best” 12th-gen Alder Lake processor, the Core i9-12900K. . At F1 2022, the Ryzen 7600X delivered 11% more FPS than the Core i9-12900K. The AMD chip also dominates Middle-Earth Shadow of War at 2% and Rainbow Six Siege at 17%. However, the chip is on par with Intel’s in Cyberpunk 2077 and it does 3% worse in GTA V.
