The rumour mill of AMD’s highly anticipated Ryzen processors just got a lot more exciting. This time round, rumour has it that the prices of AMD’s Ryzen CPUs have apparently been listed on retailers and distributors website. To be more specific, three particular Ryzen CPUs were listed with their respective prices: Ryzen 7 1800X, Ryzen 7 1700X, and Ryzen 7 1700.
It has to be said, however, that the prices listed on these databases may not necessarily reflect the retail prices of AMD Ryzen processors in our country, but it should at least give you an indication. That aside, the first CPU listed on the database is the Ryzen 7 1700, which apparently is the least powerful CPU among the three that were mentioned. This processor came listed with a price of US$316.59 (about RM1,406) on BLT (Bottom Line Telecommunications) database.
Next up is the Ryzen 7 1700X, which has been included on the same distributor’s database for a price of US$381.72 (around RM1,695). Meanwhile, the significantly more powerful AMD Ryzen 7 1800X was listed at US$490.29 (approximately RM2,177).
Interestingly, the folks at VideoCardz have managed to obtain screenshots of all three processors being listed in a UK distributor’s website – this time with key specifications. The Ryzen 7 1700 CPU is expected to arrive with a clock speed of 3.7GHz (perhaps the base speed) along with eight CPU cores. The TDP of the processor was rated at 65W. It appears that AMD has graciously included its Wraith CPU cooler along with the Ryzen 7 1700 as well.
Likewise, several specifications of the Ryzen R7 1700X was also mentioned. The AMD CPU is said to be equipped with an eight core CPU which will churn out clock speeds of 3.7GHz. The more powerful Ryzen 7 1800X processor on the other hand will ship with, again, an eight core CPU along with a clock speed of 4.0GHz. According to the listing, both aforementioned processors may come with a TDP rating of 95W.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like both these CPUs will be bundled with AMD’s Wraith CPU cooler. Regardless, with rumours and leaks such as this surfacing, we can’t help but think that the release date of AMD’s Ryzen processors may be just around the corner.
