AMD is scheduled to announce their new Ryzen 7000 CPUs in the next few hours but leaked reports have surfaced regarding pricing which look to be retaining the launch prices of the Ryzen 5000 series. That said, the Ryzen 7000 Zen 4 CPUs will also debut with a similar stack based on early rumors and is expected to launch with the Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X and Ryzen 5 7600X.
This could change as anticipation for a V-Cached X3D SKU has been very loud but AMD has not launched a new X3D CPU since the Ryzen 7 5800X3D which sits at a position which could cannibalize the Ryzen 5 7600X and Ryzen 7 7700X’s gaming market.
TechPowerUp’s source suggest the following prices:
- Ryzen 9 7950X – $799 US
- Ryzen 9 7900X – $549 US
- Ryzen 7 7700X – $449 US
- Ryzen 5 7600X – $299 US
AMD’s Zen4 CPU debuts on a new socket: AMD’s excursion to LGA with Socket AM5. Motherboards featuring the new chipset have already been announced and should be with reviewers by now. The other big change for Zen4 is the choice to go with DDR5, which at this point in time now makes sense versus what it was last year. This was doubly risky as Intel would support DDR4 by then but the landscape has since changed now.
AMD will be debuting their Ryzen 7000 today:
