The entire AMD Ryzen lineup is no longer unknown to us, thanks to several leaks spreading the web these past few days. Recently, prices of the Ryzen R7 1800X, R7 1700X and R7 1700 were also leaked; and all of these processors features 8 cores and 16 threads. This time the source came from elchapuzasinformatico.com. There’s also another one that surfaced at taobao.com – an unknown Ryzen CPU was listed with a clock speed of 4.2GHz and was priced at ¥1999.00, around $290 USD. Do note that these information are unverified. So take it with a grain of salt (Salt Bae style). More details below.
AMD Ryzen R7 (Flagship) CPUs Prices Leaked
According the source, the flagship AMD Ryzen R7 1800X will be priced at around € 599.99 Euros. The R7 1800X features 8 cores 16 threads and is rumored to have a clock speed of 4GHz (not sure if boost or base). The R7 1800X is said to compete with Intel’s Core i7 6900K Broadwell-E processor which is currently priced at around $1,050. If the pricing for the R7 1800X is true and performance is on par with the 6900K, well I think you know already which one is the better deal.
Next is the AMD Ryzen R7 1700X, also featuring 8 cores and 16 threads and is rumored to have a clock speed of around 3.8GHz. The R7 1700X is rumored to be priced at around € 469.99 euros and is said to compete with Intel’s Core i7 7700K and 6800K.
Last, but not the least, is the Ryzen R7 1700; it has similar specs with the 1700X, except that it has a lower clock speed of 3.7GHz, has a TDP of 65W and is rumored to be priced at € 389.95 euros. This CPU doesn’t have an “X” in its model number, but according to AMD’s presentation all AMD Ryzen processors will feature unlocked multipliers and can be overclocked.
Finally, the AMD Ryzen processors are rumored to be released this coming March, or probably at the end of this month. This is really exciting times specially for us consumers. AMD is finally back in the high end segment of processors. Competition means more options for us, probably better performance/ pricing as well.
