AMD’s new desktop Ryzen 7000 CPUs are powerful and affordable

From PC World: AMD announced three affordable new 65W desktop Ryzen processors at CES 2023, continuing to bundle them with a stock cooler to save buyers money.

The Ryzen 9 7900 will join the Ryzen 7 7700 and the Ryzen 5 7600, AMD said, as the new entrants to the Ryzen 7000 family. AMD announced the premium Ryzen 7000 family last August, with the 7600X, 7700X, 7900X, and the 7950X, designed for gaming and other high-performance applications. Those chips ranged from $299 to $699, justified by the massive performance that the Ryzen 7950X offered.

AMD’s new chips are designed for tighter budgets, with pricing ranging from $229 to $429 instead. Not only is the company offering a processor with less expensive alternatives, but the new Ryzens are outperforming the Ryzen 5xxx generation by a substantive amount, both in terms of content creation as well as gaming.
