AMD Ryzen 5 7500F CPU without integrated graphics tested with first benchmark
The company is set to launch a new Ryzen 7000 CPU that will lack integrated GPU support.
The AMD Ryzen 5 7500F stands out as the first AM5 processor without integrated graphics support. This suggests the presence of a faulty I/O die, where two 2CUs are typically found. Similar to Intel’s iGPU-less variants, the F-series CPUs are expected to be priced slightly lower than models that include basic graphics capability.
The specific model in question features 6 cores and 12 threads with a CPU clock speed of 3.7 GHz. According to motherboard manufacturers who revealed some details early, this CPU shares a nearly identical configuration to the Ryzen 5 7600, with the exception of the absence of a GPU and a slightly lower base clock of 100 MHz. Both processors utilize the same B2 stepping silicon and have a default TDP of 65W.
Due to the release of Geekbench version 6.1, performance results have become inconsistent, making it difficult to directly compare scores from version 6.0 to 6.1, especially for the new AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs. However, we can still gather some relevant data by examining entries using the same A620 motherboard, Geekbench version 6.1, and DDR5-6000 memory, as used by this entry.
|AMD Ryzen 7000 / A620 / Geekbench 6.1 Results|
|Ryzen 7 7700X (8-core)|
|Ryzen 7 7700 (8-core)|
|Ryzen 7 7800X3D (8-core)|
|Ryzen 5 7600X (6-core)|
|Ryzen 5 7500F (6-core)|
Unfortunately, we did not find any entries for the Ryzen 5 7600 non-X that meet our criteria exactly. Nevertheless, the differences between the available results are minimal. In fact, the 7500F performs slightly better in multi-threaded tests, although the 2% difference falls within the margin of error. On the other hand, the 7600X has higher 3.7% performance in single-core test.
Nonetheless, the Ryzen 5 7500F presents itself as an attractive option, particularly for budget-conscious gamers who plan to use a discrete GPU, which represents the majority of users on the AMD AM5 platform. This situation is unlikely to change until AMD introduces its Phoenix CPUs for the AM5 socket. Sadly, AMD has not yet officially announced this processor, and it remains unclear whether the 7500F will remain available for DIY enthusiasts or instead become a product exclusive to OEMs.
