AMD Ryzen 7 7700X
The Ryzen 7 7700X is a 8 core CPU from AMD released in 2022. This chip has an amazing overall score at 101% in our CPU benchmark. Our gaming benchmark shows that this CPU is an incredible processor for gaming, with a score of 124%. As for multitasking and heavy workloads, the Ryzen 7 7700X scores 94% and 92% respectively. Indeed, this is a very good rating for very heavy workloads.
The Ryzen 7 7700X has 8 cores and 16 threads. This CPU makes use of simultaneous multithreading technology to improve performance on parallel tasks. Each physical CPU core is divided into multiple logical processors. This AMD CPU has a clock speed of 4.5 GHz and a turbo speed of 5.4 GHz : a higher clock speed that can be reached when thermals and power delivery allow. This CPU has an unlocked multiplier and allows for overclocking. With adequate cooling and a good power supply, it's possible to run this CPU at a higher clock speed.
As for memory, the Ryzen 7 7700X makes use of DDR5 memory. The faster the memory, the better. Faster memory means that the CPU doesn't have to wait to get the data it needs. Furthermore, this chip can handle up to 2 channels of RAM, a multichannel memory architecture allows for higher data transfer between the CPU and the memory. However, to take advantage of this, you must have enough memory slots filled.
In terms of cache, the Ryzen 7 7700X has 512 KiB of level 1 cache, 8 MiB of level 2 cache and 32 MiB of level 3 cache. This is a fast memory located close to the processor, which stores copies of frequently used data from main memory.
Power and thermals for the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X CPU are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 105 watts. This measures the amount of heat the processor produces when running at full load. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's good estimate.
