Finding the right pair can be harder, so what GPUJ goes with the 7700X
Updated: January 31, 2023 12:02 pm
The AMD Ryzen 7 7700X is an extremely fast desktop processor that belongs to the Raphael series. It has 8 cores based on Zen 4 architecture which supports hyperthreading (16 threads).
In any case, it was the Ryzen 7 7700X that went toe to toe with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which is significantly faster in L3 cache, significantly increasing CPU gaming performance.
The FPS winner will depend on the game. But generally speaking, it was the Ryzen 7 7700X that outperformed every chip we looked at in testing, with the Core I9-12900K winning in Cyberpunk 2077 as well as Total War. : Warhammer III however, even there it was extremely close.

The standout feature of this Ryzen 7 7700X is how it can perform equally well against chips that have the same or higher TDP.
Throughout the test session with the 7700X model, it exceeded its capacity at 121.222W and was somewhat comparable to the Ryzen 9 5950X. Ryzen 9 5950X, which required 144.895W when maxed out.
Even more problematic is the Core I9-12900K which was able to outperform that of the Ryzen 7 7700X by around 18%, but its maximum power consumption was 251.61W, more than double the maximum power consumption of the Ryzen 7 7700X.
Ultimately, while the 7700X can fight superior CPUs to draw, or at least an impressive fight against defeat, however, it uses less power.

What Ryzen 7 7700X GPU bottlenecks?
Low-end GPUs will hamper the Ryzen 7 7700X. But even the RTX 3060 Ti or RX 6600 XT will be CPU bottlenecks. The processor is a much higher level and will not unleash its full potential with these graphics cards.

Minimal and compact design
Lack of ray tracing performance
This means that all other entry-level cards such as the RTX 3050 and RX 6600 are equally underperforming for the CPU. As all the work will be done on the GPU and especially at higher resolutions.
On the other hand, high-end graphics cards will be too powerful for the processor itself. So something like the RX 7900 XTX or RTX 4090 is too powerful.
