AMD Ryzen R7 8 core 16 thread European Prices Leaked

/ 2 years ago


Over the past several weeks, we’ve seen some wide-ranging prices for various AMD Ryzen processors. Yesterday, a mysterious listing popped up with a $295 price tag for a Ryzen with an unknown core count. Today, we have a new report that purports to have the European prices for several of the 8 core 16 thread R7 CPUs. Keep in mind that these prices include the relevant EU taxes so US prices will be lower.

First up, we have the R7 1800X which is the top model 8 core chip. Coming in at €599.99, this puts it at about $640 which is dramatically cheaper than the comparable i7 6900K which costs about $1000. The clock speed comes in at 4 GHz with no word given if that is the boost or base clock. I suspect the retail MSRP will be $600 for the rest of the world.


Next, we have the R7 1700X which sits in the middle of the pack from previous lineup leaks. Coming in at €469.99, that puts it at about $500, sitting in between the hexacore i7 6800K and i7 6850K. Even accounting for VAT, the MSRP is probably in the $450-500 range. The clocks are only a tad lower than the 1800X at 3.8 GHz which again gives no indication if that is the base or boost clock.


Last of all, we have the R7 1700 non-X which is an interesting chip. At a mere €389.95, that would put it at about $415 or around the same as the i7 6800K. I suspect the MSRP will be set at about $375-400 which puts it just slightly higher than the i7 7700K. Clocked at 3.6 GHz, the chip even features a lower TDP than the rest at 65W.

Overall, these prices paint a very competitive pricing scheme for Ryzen. If the performance claims from AMD are to be believed, the x86 CPU landscape is for sure to see some dramatic pricing shifts. While no pricing was given for the quad core and hexacore units, the should likely be priced competitively against Intel, with the hexacores doing battle against the quad-core i7s and the quad cores facing off against the i5 and i3.

    €599.99, when you take off the~20% VAT, and convert to $, is about $530 – and there’s usually a markup in Europe over the dollar, so $499 is a slight possibility still, but $599 is still going to be a strong price. Consider that of the few demos we’ve seen, the Blender one had a 3.4GHz Ryzen equalling the 6900K, at 4GHz you should see some nice results. Of course, the price leak could just be placeholder prices and worthless.

    Interesting, but I want to see some more benchmarks..

    16 threads at 4+ GHz yes please!

    Ryzen is cheaper, because it is cheaper. Far from being fanboy of Chipzilla and over-inflated-monopolistic pricing, but Ryzen doesn’t offer quad channel memory support and it does not offer 40 PCI-e lanes. Something that will certainly be a stumbling block for content creation or some serious storage. For games and multimedia why not.

    24 lanes that almost like X58/LGA 1366 refresh from 2007/08. Me personally while interested waiting more for Naples than Ryzen which seems very -underwhelming- creation from all leaks so far.

    I wish so bad I had the money for one of these because then I can upgrade my much needed system!

    Also if it is $600 then it’s £600 for us because they love to rip off the GBP
