AMD Ryzen 5 7600X and Ryzen 9 7900X Review - Conclusion

AMD Ryzen 5 7600X and Ryzen 9 7900X Review – Conclusion

Now that we’ve also tested the Ryzen 5 7600X and Ryzen 9 7900X, our picture of AMD’s Ryzen 7000 series is complete. Both models basically do what they’re supposed to: the 7600X is faster than the Intel Core i5-12600K, and the Ryzen 9 7900X beats the Core i9-12900K more convincingly. Intel will release its new 13th generation core processors next week, so we’ll have to wait a little longer for the comparison.

Ryzen 5 7600X

Of the two models tested recently, we find the Ryzen 5 7600X the most difficult to recommend. A mid-range processor should always have a little price tag, and although there is a slight error in the price of the processor itself, with this Ryzen processor you can also choose the expensive AM5 platform. Even the new B650 motherboards can’t be found anywhere for less than 200 euros, and the DDR5 range is also very expensive. You can combine a comparable Intel CPU with a cheaper motherboard and, if you want, your existing DDR4 memory.

Ryzen 9 7900X

The Ryzen 9 7900X is less affected by this, as this chip is in the higher price areas anyway. On average, it’s only 11 percent slower than the top-of-the-line model, which could make it an interesting alternative to the 7950X. Take a look at how much these 4 extra cores add to your usage related tasks. An additional advantage is low consumption, while the heat production is still divided into two parts. Therefore, the 7900X is somewhat better in cooling than the 7950X.

Cold and Economy Tests

Our further tests using different coolants yielded few results; Better or worse cooling hardly affects the performance achieved. Our test results in eco mode are even more impressive. With this modification, Ryzen 7000 processors are significantly more economical, while performance is not affected or suffer. It’s a shame that AMD hides this feature so much that switching in Ryzen Master doesn’t produce the desired result at the moment. At the same time, this is also not a sacred goal, because in programs that do not have fully multi-threading and therefore do not conflict with the tighter current limits, the economic situation has no effect. In gaming, for example, the Ryzen 9 7900X remains one of the least efficient processors in this test.

We previously handed the Ultimate award to the Ryzen 9 7950X, simply because it’s the fastest processor out there, but we haven’t found any award materials for the two newly tested models at the moment. In our opinion, the “ifs” and “buts” clause have too much weight for that. Your specific usage scenario, or future price drops, whether from the CPUs themselves or the desired platform, can of course make for interesting new Ryzens options.
