AMD Ryzen 7 7700, a worthy successor to 5700X?
The company is reportedly preparing a new octa-core Ryzen CPU.
All Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs released to date, including mid-range models like 7700X or 7600X, have a standard TDP of at least 105W, which is a significant increase over 5700X or 5600X SKUs based on the Zen3. -architecture. However, it looks like AMD will be launching another 65W model after all.
According to a short tweet from @momomo_us, AMD is working on a non-X Ryzen 7 7700 processor. An encrypted message refers to 8 cores and 65W TDP, so already a lot less power than 8-core 105W 7700X.
The leaker doesn’t provide further details like clock speeds or where this component was actually discovered, but it’s clear AMD needs this CPU now more than ever. With the launch of the 13th Gen Core “Raptor Lake” series, AMD could definitely add more budget 6/8-core CPUs.
It’s worth recalling that this rumored Ryzen 7 7700 non-X isn’t the only new CPU expected from AMD right now. The company will most likely announce its 7000X3D series with 3D V-Cache early next year. This technology, already demonstrated in the Zen3-based 5800X3D, has proven useful in gaming. Should the same boost come to the Ryzen 7000 series, AMD could quickly recapture the performance crown.
