Already in the next month we will be able to see the latest AMD processors based on the Zen 4 architecture. Perhaps everyone is calm about the performance of the chip, but the biggest problem is its price. There have already been rumors that the Ryzen 7 7700X octa-core processor will be priced at $299, which sounds like a very attractive proposition. Does reality prove he’s just as nice of us? Well, I guess it’s too early to be optimistic…
First renders show us that AMD Ryzen 7000 chips can be more expensive than we thought. Fortunately, it is too early to consider it a starting point.
AMD Ryzen 7000 processors have already appeared in the presentation of the Canadian store DirectDial. You can find all four expected models on the seller’s website. The Ryzen 5 7600X is $435 / $340, the Ryzen 7 7700X is $631 / $494, the Ryzen 9 7900X is $798 / $625, and the Ryzen 9 7950X is $1,158 / $907. So it is not cheap – in fact, compared to the recently mentioned prices, it is very expensive. It should be noted that these systems are sold without refrigerant. Below you will also find an offer found bymomomo_us that comes from an unspecified store. As you can see, the prices are a little lower, but they apply to processors in the tray version.
Fortunately, it’s too early to consider these shows as a starting point. Usually in such cases we deal with so-called placeholders and visual prices are inflated, especially since electronic equipment in Canada is generally more expensive than in the United States for tax reasons. So all we have to do is be patient. According to recent reports, the AMD Ryzen 7000 series chipset will be announced later this month, possibly during the Gamescom trade show (August 23-28).
