AMD Ryzen 5 7500F specs, price, release date rumors

New six-core Zen 4 processor reportedly costs under $200, ditches integrated graphics to keep the price down, and has a maximum boost clock of 5GHz.

AMD Ryzen 5 7500F

The first signs of a cheap six-core AMD Ryzen 7000-series CPU have started appearing online, with a mysterious AMD Ryzen 5 7500F popping up on the PugetBench benchmark league tables, and photos of the new CPU appearing in Korea.

We’ve just checked the PugetBench results for ourselves, which show four entries for the new CPU benchmarked with DaVinci Resolve, all from what look like the same system, with an Asus ROG Strix X670E-F motherboard, 32GB of 4800MHz DDR5 memory and a GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card.

The PugetBench entries were first spotted by Twitter user @harukaze5719, and you can see them for yourself here – the results vary from 2,037 to 2,313, and the summary confirms that the GPU does indeed have six cores.

What’s also interesting is the ‘F’ at the end of its name. AMD hasn’t produced an F-series CPU before, but if the company is following Intel’s naming rules, this would mean the CPU doesn’t have an integrated GPU. We’ve seen this before from Intel, with CPUs such as the Core i5-13400F coming without integrated graphics.

Currently, all desktop CPUs based on the latest AMD Zen 4 architecture feature a primitive integrated GPU featuring just two AMD RDNA 2 compute units. This gives them a decent GPU for desktop work, but these GPUs aren’t designed for gaming.

Meanwhile, a Korean retailer has reportedly provided some more details on the new CPU, including photos (which we’ve reproduced above), specs and price. The retailer’s original video has now been made private on YouTube, but tech site Wccftech claims to have grabbed the essential information while it was still available.

According to the site, the Ryzen 5 7500F will be $10-15 cheaper than the Ryzen 5 7600, and will have a maximum clock speed of 5GHz – 100MHz slower than the Ryzen 5 7600, and 300MHz slower than the Ryzen 5 7600X. The retailer also reportedly stated that the Ryzen 5 7500F would be released on July 7, 2023, the same launch date as the Ryzen 5 5600X3D.

AMD Ryzen 5 7500F price

The best estimate for the Ryzen 5 7500F price is $209 (£199), based on the price of the Ryzen 5 7600, as no announcement has been made.

Price: Expect to pay $209 (£199).

AMD Ryzen 5 7500F release date

The expected release date for the Ryzen 5 7500F is July 7, 2023, although no official announcement has been made.

A cheaper option in the Zen 4 stable would be very welcome, as AMD’s latest CPUs have been hit hard by the total platform cost of DDR5 memory and a new motherboard, as well as the high price of a new CPU. If the Ryzen 5 7500F does indeed come without a GPU, and keeps the price down, then it could be a solid budget gaming CPU.
