AMD Ryzen 5 7600 and Ryzen 7 7700 Surface: 19% and 14% Slower than the 7600X and 7700X, Respectively

AMD’s budget non-X Ryzen 7000 SKUs have surfaced over at the SiSoft benchmark database. These chips are lower-clocked variants of the CPUs launched last month and ought to be released early next year. Much like their predecessors, they will cost $75-100 less than their X siblings, with a focus on the mainstream gaming audience.

The benchmarks from SiSoft are compute-intensive arithmetic tests affected primarily by ALU and core counts, followed by operational clocks. The Ryzen 5 7600 and Ryzen 7 7700 have significantly lower base clocks than their X variants: 900MHz, and 700MHz, respectively. The single-core boosts are only 100MHz apart but aren’t always attainable in TDP-intensive workloads because of their 65W TDP.

The Ryzen 5 7600 scores 259 points in the arithmetic benchmark, trailing the 7600X by 19%, while the 7700X leads the 7700 by 16%. The performance deltas in gaming workloads will be much lower as the peak clocks will be very similar on the two. Going by previous generations, the Ryzen 7 7600 should cost $199, the 7700 between $299 and $349, and land in early 2023.
