AMD Ryzen 9000 “Zen 5” processors listed online at prices significantly lower than Ryzen 7000 MSRP prices

AMD’s next-generation Ryzen 9000 “Zen 5” desktop CPUs have been listed online again and are priced significantly lower than the Ryzen 7000 MSRPs.

AMD Ryzen 9000 ‘Zen 5’ desktop CPUs could offer insane value on AM5 platform Based on latest retail listings, 9950X is €190 cheaper than 7950X’s MSRP

A few days ago, we announced the first retail listings for the AMD Ryzen 9000 “Zen 5” desktop CPUs. Now, a new retailer has listed all four chipsets including the Ryzen 9 9950X, Ryzen 9 9900X, Ryzen 7 9700X and Ryzen 5 9600X available for pre-order with them available by August 2nd, just a few days after the official announcement. Launch scheduled for July 31.

According to the retail listing before FintechAll four chips are listed with their pre-order prices, though we can’t confirm if these are official or not. What we can say is that they appear to be significantly lower than the manufacturer’s recommended retail prices for the Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” desktop processors at launch, so let’s start with the first chips first.

The AMD Ryzen 9 9950X 16-Core CPU is listed at €659.90 which is €190 cheaper than the official retail price of the Ryzen 9 7950X which sold for €849 at launch. It’s also significantly lower than the official retail price of €789.99 for the Ryzen 9 7950X3D during its launch. Of course, both Ryzen 7000 chips have since seen a host of discounts and the same dealer is offering these chips at €600.15 (Ryzen 9 7950X3D) and €550.18 (Ryzen 9 7950X). The price is much closer to discounted prices and this will be great for new PC makers who are planning to switch to Zen 5 CPUs.

Next, we have the 12-core AMD Ryzen 9 9900X CPU which is listed at €499.90, which is €170 cheaper than the official retail price of the Ryzen 9 7900X and €180 cheaper than the official retail price of the Ryzen 9 7900X3D. Again, this is a significant price drop for a 12-core CPU and should be very competitive against Intel’s higher-end Core i9 offerings.

Moving down the stack, we have the AMD Ryzen 7 9700X 8-core processor, which is listed at €399.90. This is a €80 price point lower than the Ryzen 9 7900X and €110 cheaper than the official MSRP of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D CPUs. Keep in mind that this CPU may get an update with a higher 120W TDP as we mentioned here as AMD wants to showcase the performance advantage of Zen 5 in gaming and by increasing the TDP, it may be able to take on its popular 7800X3D processor, which is one of the best-selling processors on the market right now.

Finally, we have the Ryzen 5 9600X listed at €309.90, which is also a drop of €50 compared to the official retail price of the Ryzen 5 7600X which retailed at €359. So if we compare the listed retail prices to the official retail prices of the Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs, we can see that there is a significant reduction across the board as shown in the table below:
