AMD-RYZEN-7000-NONX-PRICING-RELEASE-INFO-VideoCardz

According to a new leak from the folks at VideoCardz shows that AMD is preparing to launch its new non-X Ryzen 7000 processors. The accompanying report suggests the company will launch the CPUs on January 10, 2023.

Essentially, the non-Ryzen 7000 series will offer a more affordable range of processors compared to the regular Ryzen 7000 chipsets.

For this new series, AMD will differentiate the lines by lowering the boost and base clock speeds. That means the non-Ryzen 7000 series will have a lower TDP of just 65W compared to 170W and 105W on the more powerful siblings.

With this compromise will come a more enticing price tag. Below is the basic specs and price of the new range, according to VideoCardz.

 Intel Meteor Lake Announcement

In separate processor news, Intel has revealed its upcoming 14th-Gen Meteor Lake processors will have an industry-first AV1 coding. Specifically, AV1 8-bit and 10-bit video encoding and decoding.

However, AMD is planning to counter Intel with the next generation Ryzen 7040 series Phoenix APUs, which will also support AV1 encoding. This upcoming platform will boast RDNA 3-based integrated graphics, which appears to be a step forward for AV1 encoding and on paper will provide better results than Intel’s version.
