Anandtech forums have revealed AMD’s Ryzen 7 7700X, an 8-core Zen 4 CPU, significantly proving the existence of the impending product.

We are seeing an AMD Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPU with the OPN code “100-000000591” for the first time in this article. The Ryzen 7 7700X is anticipated to go on sale for less than the Ryzen 7 5800X, which had a $449 US suggested sales price at launch over two years ago. Even though the picture’s primary source is still unknown, it is most likely a reviewer sample because those were just recently sent. Since the B650(E) series won’t be released till October, the motherboard must be an X670E or X670 solution.

The AMD Ryzen 7 7700X Zen 4 Raphael Desktop CPU will have a perfectly square design (45x45mm), as seen by the photos, but it will also have a rather clumsy additional heat spreader or IHS. The IHS, also known as the “Octopus” internally, is a very intriguing design with a full-on solder, making desoldering the chip challenging given its numerous components. Also, since it only has 8 cores, as opposed to Ryzen 9 solutions with two Zen 4 CCDs, AMD may use a single Zen 4 CCD plus the IOD chiplet for this chip.

AMD Ryzen 7 7700X 8 Core “Zen 4” Desktop CPU

Here we have the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X, an 8-core and 16-thread component from the Ryzen 7 family. The CPU will have a base clock of 4.5 GHz and a boost clock of 5.4 GHz, but at a reduced 105W TDP, since AMD sees this as the ideal range for gamers (142W PPT). In addition, the CPU will receive a 40 MB cache pool, which is made up of 8 MB L2 and 32 MB L3 from the single Zen 4 core and CCD, respectively.

Now, it’s interesting to note that AMD has not yet released an update for the Ryzen 7 7800X processor. However, AMD may aim to replace that component with a Ryzen 7 5800X3D replacement with Zen 4 cores (3D V-Cache). If so, the CPU lineup will likely be updated later this year since AMD has announced that the V-Cache components will debut in the latter half of Q4 2022. Additionally, the Ryzen 7 7700X will be priced very competitively in the mainstream sector based on classification.

The AMD Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs will be introduced on August 29th, with a sale date of September planned. However, the commercial debut is reportedly going to be slightly delayed to September 27th due to BIOS-related concerns. In our comprehensive review of the next-gen family, available here, you can read in detail about AMD’s next-generation Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs and the corresponding 600-series motherboards.
