According to other leaks, AMD plans to expand the Ryzen 7000 chip line early next year.

The announcement of three models is expected immediately – Ryzen 9 7900, Ryzen 7 7700 and Ryzen 5 7600. Obviously, the most noticeable change compared to the X-versions will be the reduction of the thermal package to 65 W. For a noticeable reduction in consumption, it is only necessary to reduce the operating frequency and supply voltage by 100-200 MHz. Also, the dynamic CPU acceleration algorithm will probably be less aggressive, depending on the nature of the load.

Processor rumors: AMD is preparing Ryzen 7900/7700/7600 models with TDP 65 W and reduced prices

However, the total actual difference in performance compared to older models is unlikely to exceed 5–10%. At the same time, the source notes much nicer price tags for chips without the “X” index in the name. In particular, the 12-core Ryzen 9 7900 model is listed at $429 instead of $549 in the Ryzen 9 7900X. The 8-core Ryzen 7 7700 chip is expected to be priced at $329, and the most affordable for the Socket AM5 platform at the beginning of 2023 should be the 6-core Ryzen 5 7600 for $229.
