well well well. here are some info on the infamous "RyZen" cpu thats about to be heading our way very soon, what do yall think? reasonable?
One of the biggest unknowns concerning AMD's upcoming Ryzen processors is what price they will be sold at. We've heard lots of details about Ryzen, its architectural design, its capabilities, and the technology behind it but the crucial pricing information has been held back. Understandably, AMD wouldn't want to forewarn competitors by providing too much information on a product yet to launch. Furthermore, product pricing is a variable that can be changed rather quickly so it's shrewd to hold back such info.
Retailers aren't always on the ball at following NDA dates and such. Electronics sellers handle thousands of products so when new ones appear it's easy to miss information about not publishing details too early, and this looks like what has happened several times with AMD Ryzen CPUs already.
Earlier in the week there were Euro prices for AMD R7 Ryzen 8C/16T processors circulating the internet. Now those prices have been given credence by further spills from US and UK online retailers.
In the UK we have a screenshot of a listing of Ryzen CPUs from trade seller Ingram Micro. These listed processors seem to have been taken down, but luckily VideoCardz took a snap. You can see the top end 4GHz AMD Ryzen 7 1800X was listed at GBP £365, the Ryzen 7 1700X at £283, and the Ryzen 7 1700 at £235. These are ex-VAT prices so you have to add 20 per cent, unfortunately. That makes the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X £438 by my calculations. In the listings WOF seems to mean 'without fan'.
