AMD Ryzen 9 7900 Coming in Early 2023 with a Price of $429, Ryzen 7 7700 at $329, and Ryzen 5 7600 at $229 [Rumor]

AMD’s budget (non-X) Ryzen 7000 processors are coming to the retail market next quarter. Consisting of the 7600, 7700, and 7900, we’ll get budget Zen 4 in six, eight, and twelve core configurations. The source claims the hex-core Ryzen 5 7600 will have a peak boost clock of 5.1GHz, 200MHz lower than the 7600X. The Ryzen 7 7700 clocks up to 5.3GHz, 100MHz lower than its X sibling. Finally, the 12-core Ryzen 9 7900 has a maximum frequency of 5.4GHz, 200MHz shy of the 7900X.

Although these chips have roughly the same boost clocks as their X variants, they will come with much lower base frequencies. Furthermore, the multi-core boost in heavily threaded workloads will be tamer on account of the 65W TDP.

According to @g01d3nm4ng0, these non-X Raphael parts will land in the first quarter of 2023 with a price tag of $429, $329, and $229 for the Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700, and Ryzen 5 7600, respectively.
