Ryzen 7000s are very powerful, but very hot. Finally published full reviews of new processors

Literally, the ban on publishing reviews of the new Ryzen 7000 processors has just been lifted, so we can get acquainted with such materials.

For evaluation, we took reviews of all four new CPUs from our colleagues from TechPowerUp.

As befits a large review, the authors took a large number of applications for testing. However, if we talk about modern CPUs with a large number of cores, and especially about flagship models, potential buyers should pay attention to those applications that are important for each of them personally.

If we sum up some general results, then everything depends on the specific CPU.

The Ryzen 9 7950X is by far the highest performing non-HEDT consumer processor in the industry. In almost all applications, it shows the best result and somewhere it can lose to some other new product from AMD due to the lack of optimization for a large number of cores. The Ryzen 9 7950X is on average 25% faster than the Ryzen 9 5950X and 15% faster than the Core i9-12900K. However, in some applications, the difference can reach 30-50%.

The 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X is about 6% faster than the Core i9-12900K and 15% faster than the Core i7-12700K. The eight-core Ryzen 7 7700X is 20% faster than its predecessor (Ryzen 7 5800X), while in a number of tasks the new product manages to bypass even the Core i9-12900K, although on average, of course, the latter is faster. As for the popular six-core Ryzen 5 7600X, it is 25% faster than its predecessor and is often able to compete with the Ryzen 9 5900X, which has twice as many cores! On average, the results are certainly not so impressive, but for those who use certain applications, the Ryzen 5 7600X can be almost a miracle.

In games, as always, everything primarily depends on the video card, but in those modes where the influence of the CPU is somehow noticeable, AMD’s new products show themselves perfectly, bypassing even the gaming Ryzen 7 5800X3D.

However, there is also a fly in the ointment. All this huge performance gain was not in vain, and the Ryzen 7000 added a significant amount to power consumption.

Under heavy load, the Ryzen 9 7950X draws around 235W, versus just 118W for the Ryzen 9 5950X. And even the six-core Ryzen 5 7600X consumes 100 watts. True, this is a lot only against the background of the previous generation Ryzen, since the same Core i9-12900K requires more than 250 watts.

At the same time, if we talk about the average consumption in different applications, everything is better here: only 125 W for the Ryzen 9 7950X, which is completely uncritical and still less than the Core i9-12900K.

New AMD processors heat up accordingly. In the same Blender application, the new flagship heats up to 94 degrees, and this is using the powerful Noctua NH-U14S cooler. And the problem is that even the Ryzen 5 7600X heats up to 88 degrees, and the Ryzen 7 7700X does not lag behind the flagship. Again, in games and more gentle programs, the heating is much less: within 70 degrees. And it’s also worth repeating that this is all a lot compared to the Ryzen 5000, because Intel Alder Lake shows no less heat.

Of course, you need to remember that tomorrow Intel will introduce the new Raptor Lake processors, and it is with them that the Ryzen 7000 will compete. which one will compete is not yet clear. And taking into account the preserved technical process, increased frequencies and an increased number of cores, it is likely to heat up and consume new Intel CPUs even more.

Ryzen 7 5800X is also 8-core, but with a TDP of 105W. It is offered for $238, which is $210 (or 46%) less than the official retail price at the time of debut ($449).

Less than 3 liters of volume, liquid metal and a discrete graphics card. Minisforum HX99G mini-PC is preparing for release

Less than 3 liters of volume liquid metal and a

Minisforum will soon release the HX99G mini PC based on Ryzen 6000 and Radeon RX 6000.

The novelty will largely repeat the HX90G model, offering a more modern APU. More precisely, it is based on the Ryzen 9 6900HX, and for gamers it is more important that the Radeon RX 6600M is used here. All this is cooled by a very massive CO with seven heat pipes, and liquid metal is used as a thermal interface.

Of the rest, two slots for RAM, two slots for SSD M.2 2280 format, a pair of HDMI ports, one DisplayPort, RJ45 (2.5 Gb), USB 3.1, USB 3.2 (x3), USB-C can be noted. The dimensions are 206 x 203 x 68.6 mm, so the new product is a very productive solution in its dimensions.

No pricing yet, but the Ryzen 9 5900HX-based HX90G is $800 as a Barebones kit. The novelty will probably be a little more expensive.

For those looking for more CPU performance for about the same money, Minisforum has the Neptune NAD9 based on the Core i9-12900HX. But this mini PC does not have a discrete graphics card.
