AMD is expected to launch the four CPUs in the Ryzen 7000 series (the “X” line) tonight, and hours before the announcement, the prices have already been leaked. Based on wccftechsourceupcoming desktop chip prices are as follows:
- Ryzen 9 7950X – $799 US
- Ryzen 9 7900X – $549 US
- Ryzen 7 7700X – $449 US
- Ryzen 5 7600X – $299 US
This price, like wccftech notes correctly, remains unchanged from the price Zen 3 lineup Ryzen 5000which is also range from $299 to $799 at the time of release. The 7000 series is a direct successor to the 5000 desktop series — 6000 . series (currently flowing out on certain laptop models) skip the desktop chip.
Much of what we know about these upcoming Ryzen 7000 CPUs comes from Computex AMD Keynote earlier this year. They are set to be the first desktop CPUs based on the 5nm process. They’re also the first AMD chips to boast a clock boost above 5GHz — these CPUs match the 5.5GHz output of Intel’s flagship Core i9-12900KS over a long period of time. Ghostwire: Tokyo onstage.
The price, if confirmed, won’t come as a surprise — the Ryzen 5000 generation was widely regarded as highly valued when it was released, and the new generation brings significant clock speed improvements. However, some PC enthusiasts might see $300 for a six-core part as a bad deal because competing Intel Core i5-12400 parts have suggested retail price under $200and AMD’s own Ryzen 7 5700X (last generation eight-core chip) can now be found whole the place for under $300. That’s especially true because Ryzen 7000 buyers need it too out for a new motherboard — the new chip is no longer compatible with the AM4 platform.
