Retailers begin to list AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 7000 series
Just a month away from rumored launch, the first Canadian retailer is now listing four Ryzen CPUs based on Zen4 architecture.
This leak would not only confirm that only four SKUs are planned, but also initial rumors that the next series might be a bit more expensive. The flagship Ryzen 9 7950X has been listed at 1141 CAD, Ryzen 9 7900X at 778 CAD, Ryzen 7700X at 614 CAD and Ryzen 5 7600X at 424 CAD. After conversion to US Dollar the pricing should look like this:
- AMD Ryzen 9 7950X (100-100000514/WOF) – $1158 / $1140 CAD ($892 US)
- AMD Ryzen 9 7900X (100-100000589/WOF) – $798 / $777 CAD ($608 US)
- AMD Ryzen 7 7700X (100-100000591/WOF) – $631 / $613 CAD ($480 US)
- AMD Ryzen 5 7600X (100-100000593/WOF) – $435/ $423 CAD ($330 US)
One should note that this pricing is for the models without the cooler (WOF). Leaker @momomo_us who discovered those listing also mentions that AMD will be selling those CPUs on a tray (for system integrators), but there is no sign of the boxed version with a cooler thus far.
It goes without saying, but these are more than likely not final prices for Ryzen 7000 series. Retailer often list new hardware with place holding information before their distributors provide final and confirmed prices, usually just days before launch. What is interesting about this leak though, is that customers can now preorder Ryzen 7000 CPUs from PC Canada, which is technically the first shop to give this option.
As the rumors stand right now, it is expected that Ryzen 7000 series will launch in September. Although AMD has not confirmed it yet, the plan was to announce the new desktop Ryzen series on August 29th, a day after Gamescom.
