AMD recently launched its fleet of Ryzen 7000 series "Zen 4" processors, but now early listings by retailers for some non-X variants have hit the internet in the form of the Ryzen 9 7900 and Ryzen 7 7700 processors.

The upcoming AMD Ryzen 9 7900 processor will feature 12 cores and 24 threads of Zen 4 processing power, while the Ryzen 7 7700 processor packs 8 cores and 16 threads of Zen 4 processing power, both with 65W TDPs by default. They're identical to the X-series processors -- the Ryzen 9 7900X and Ryzen 7 7700X in terms of core and thread count -- but CPU clocks have changed.

The upcoming Ryzen 9 7900 processor has a 3.6GHz to 3.8GHz base CPU frequency, which is 900MHz to 1.1GHz lower than the Ryzen 9 7900X, and down 105W from the Ryzen 9 7900X and its 170W TDP. Moving onto the Ryzen 7 7700, the CPU clocks have been reduced by 700MHz to 900MHz from the Ryzen 7 7700X.

But, when will we see the new Ryzen 9 7900 and Ryzen 7 7700 processors released? AMD will most likely announce the new Ryzen 9 7900 and Ryzen 7 7700 processors at CES 2023 early next year, alongside what I'm hoping will be the announcement of the new Ryzen 7000 series CPUs with second-generation 3D V-Cache technology sitting on top. Intel will be combating the new Zen 4 3D V-Cache processors with the Core i9-13900KS which reportedly has 6.0GHz CPU clocks out of box. Oh boy.
