One of the next Ryzen 7000 Series processors that AMD plans on launching is the Ryzen 7 7700, according to the latest rumors from @momomo_us. A short tweet shared by the leaker over the weekend suggests that this will be a non-X CPU that features 8 cores and a TDP of 65 watts, a specification that’s notably lower than the power demands of the existing Ryzen 7000 Series, which range from 105 to 170 watts. AMD never released a Ryzen 7 5700, only an X model that features 8 cores, 16 threads, a max boost clock of up to 4.6 GHz, and a 65-watt TDP.

As spotted by VideoCardz:

According to a short tweet from @momomo_us, AMD is working on a non-X Ryzen 7 7700 processor. A coded message refers to 8 cores and 65W TDP, so already a lot less power than 8-core 105W 7700X.

The leaker is not providing any further details, such as clock speeds or where this part was actually discovered, but it is apparent that AMD needs this CPU now more than ever. With the launch of 13th Gen Core “Raptor Lake” series, AMD could definitely add more budget 6/8-core CPUs.
