The AMD Ryzen 7 7700 scored 2,062 and 12,685 points on its maiden Geekbench run. The 65 W CPU has a base and boost clock of 3.8 GHz and 5.3 GHz, respectively. It is about 11% slower than its X-branded counterpart in the benchmark.

Our in-depth Intel Core i5-13600K review concluded that it offered better value for money compared to the AMD Ryzen 5 7600X in several workloads. Other independent reviews also shared the sentiment and crowned Raptor Lake the value king of this generation. AMD's more affordable non-X SKUs could help the company regain the trust of budget builders, as confirmed by the AMD Ryzen 7 7700's recent Geekbench showing.

The AMD Ryzxen 7 7700 scored 2,062 and 12,685 in Geekbench's single and multi-core tests. Its base/boost clocks are set at 3.8/5.3 GHz and TDP at 65 Watts. Its single-core performance is a tad lacklustre compared to X-branded parts (5% slower in S/T and 11% slower in M/T), but that is to be expected. The test rig ran 16 GB of DDR5 4,800 MT/s RAM. Given that Geekbench is highly sensitive to memory, a faster kit will likely result in better results. However, our initial observations concluded that Zen 4 seems to get finicky after 6,000 MT/s.

There is no word about when AMD will launch the AMD Ryzen 7 7700 and other non-X SKUs. It shouldn't be long, given that they're beginning to show up on benchmarking platforms. A CES 2023 reveal alongside the Ryzen 7 7800X3D and Ryzen 9 7950X3D would be ideal. It'll be interesting to see how it fares against non-K Raptor Lake SKUs such as the Core i5-13600 and Core i7-13700.
