Result and general impression …
The AMD Ryzen 7 7700X processor shows a great multi-core performance!
The AMD Ryzen 7000 series also brings all the necessary interfaces for current hardware components. PCIe 5.0, DDR5 and USB4 are already included and enable the highest possible connection to the high CPU performance. The new performance presets that AMD has added in the BIOS give an extra performance boost and reduce the consumption, which is even more important nowadays.
AMD AM5 motherboard prices have been dropping since the introduction of the AMD B650 chipset and due to falling DDR5 RAM prices, AMD AM5 systems with AMD B650E, X670 and X670E chipsets are naturally becoming increasingly attractive. Enthusiasts will have already rushed to the new AMD Ryzen 7000 series since the beginning anyway, although the price per core of the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X with its 8 cores and 16 threads is currently slightly higher than the price per core of an AMD Ryzen 9 7950X.
