AMD plans to showcase its upcoming Ryzen 7000 (Non-X) offerings at CES 2023. Videocardz has managed to obtain a few internal slides which quite possibly were for this event. In any case, these slides are a confirmation of a previous pricing leak and give us a glimpse of the performance of these CPUs. In addition, we now know that AMD will launch the Ryzen 7000 Non-X family on the 10th of January, next year.
Ryzen 7000 Non-X
This is not the first time we are hearing about these CPUs. Only a few days back, someone tested these yet-to-launch products in Geekbench, more on that here. Furthermore, Videocardz leaked a few more slides regarding these CPUs, which kind of confirmed the pricing.
On top of the slide, we can see that the Ryzen 7000 Non-X CPUs will retail by January 10th, 2023. Reviews are expected to go live a day prior. The Ryzen 9 7900 is equipped with 12 cores / 24 threads, akin to its X-counterpart, and features a 65W TDP as is the case with all CPUs in this family. All yours for just $429.
The Ryzen 7 7700 is similar to the 7700X in terms of core/thread counts and will cost customers $329. Last, but not least, the Ryzen 5 7600 is AMD’s cheapest Zen4 offering to date costing just $229. Although, this CPU will face some serious competition if we put Intel’s Raptor Lake offerings (Non-K) against it.
The generation-on-generation uplift in gaming is quite noticeable as the Ryzen 9 7900 crushes the 5900X by up to 31%. Remember that the 7700 uses 65W whereas the 5900X consumes 105W of power. For content creators, things are no different. Zen4 Non-X, at least as per AMD, is up to 48% faster than Zen3-X.
From the data we managed to obtain from Videocardz, it is crystal clear that Zen4 is the way to go now. Although, once you factor in the platform cost, it gets expensive, really fast. In any case, DDR5 also gives a slight edge to Ryzen 7000 as Ryzen 5000 only supports DDR4 memory. The Ryzen 9 7900 is on average 19% faster than the Ryzen 9 5900X when paired with the same system (Apart from the memory).

Ryzen 7000 Non-X Series in CPU-Z (Update)
TUM_APISAK, a renowned leaker has shared a few links where the Ryzen 7000 Non-X CPUs have been validated in CPU-Z. The links are as follows:
This is basically a confirmation of the previously leaked specs. Although, this is not the first time we are seeing these CPUs in action because the entire Ryzen 7000 Non-X lineup was benchmarked in Geekbench. More on that here.
