In case you are wondering about Ryzen 7000 non-X performance, we have a long list of independent reviews listed here. Overall, the new series perform very close to their higher TDP counterparts and provide an opportunity to save a few bucks, for instance, for any of the AM5 motherboards which are still quite expensive.
The 65W SKUs will be offered alongside 105W/170W and upcoming 120W models. AMD is to launch Ryzen 7000X3D series next month, but the company has not provided any details on pricing yet.
