Pricing of Entire AMD Ryzen Lineup Revealed

AMD Wednesday launched its much awaited Ryzen performance desktop processor lineup with three top 8-core models, the Ryzen 7-1800X priced at USD $499, followed by the Ryzen 7-1700X at $399, and the Ryzen 7-1700 at $329. You're probably curious as to the rest of the lineup, especially the cheaper six-core SMT-enabled parts. Here they are. The Ryzen 5-1600X is designed to lure buyers away from the Core i5-7600K, and probably even the i7-7700K. This six-core chip with SMT, which enables 12 logical CPUs for your software to deal with, is endowed with the full 16 MB of L3 cache, and is not only unlocked, but also features the XFR (extended frequency range) technology. It's clocked at 3.60 GHz, with 4.00 GHz TurboCore. The Ryzen 5-1600X is priced at $259, and is sure to draw some attention.

Next up, is the Ryzen 5-1500. This 6-core/12-thread chip lacks XFR, but is still unlocked, ticks at 3.20 GHz with 3.50 GHz TurboCore, and features the full 16 MB of L3 cache. At $229, and with a TDP of 65W, this chip is sure to disrupt Intel's "Kaby Lake" Core i5 lineup. The quad-core Ryzen lineup is built by disabling one of the two 4-core CCX complexes on the 14 nm "Summit Ridge" silicon, and feature 8 MB of L3 cache. The lineup is led by the $199 Ryzen 5-1400X. This quad-core chip ticks at 3.50 GHz, with 3.90 GHz TurboCore, and features XFR and SMT, which enables 8 threads. Next up, is the quad-core Ryzen 5-1300, priced at $175, with the Core i3-7350K in its crosshairs, clocked at 3.20 GHz and 3.50 GHz Turbo. At the bottom of the pile is the Ryzen 3 quad-core lineup, which lack SMT. The Ryzen 3-1200X is priced at just $149, but you get 3.40 GHz clocks with 3.80 GHz Turbo, and XFR, and 8 MB of L3 cache. The cheapest Ryzen chip is just $129. The Ryzen 3-1200 lacks XFR, but gives you 3.20 GHz clocks with 3.50 GHz Turbo.

I would be interested in either a 6 core or a 8 core with no extra threads. I mostly do Gaming and it seems most games will not use more than 6 threads at the moment, and this will be a thing for quite a while.

Considering what will happen with those prices by the time chips reach Canada, I think I'll grab a 1600X

Looks like the 1500 is going to be the best $/perf.

That R7 1800X price tho, nom-nom. :) Especially considering what it does with 6900K - man, next purchase after mobo & this CPU, i'm goin for EK's custom water cooling kit to see if it hits 5.0 under it. :toast:

The 1400x looks like it could be a fun product.

Price looks interesting. Problem is whether the folks on my end will accept it or not since only the 6-core & 8-core part will be coming to my shores... which starts at around MYR1.5k++ for the 6-core RyZen R5 1600X chip.

2 years ago people would say "you dont need more than 4 cores for gaming". Things change. Fast.

I think AMD is actually missing a good opportunity to use their fairly low TDP to make a gaming centric CPU.

I would love seeing a baseline 4Ghz with 4.4Ghz+ frequency 4/6 core part.

Also, i hope that when APUs emerge we can see something coming up against the pentium G4560, the undisputed king of value at 60USD.

They're probably gonna sell 10x as many Ryzen at launch as they did Polaris, the hype seems unreal. Too bad the six & quad cores aren't available yet, it might still be supply side constraints at GF &/or Samsung.

in case the disabled core CCX of the R5 1400 can be unlocked this will be the best option....and somehow i feel amd will allow it ...

Don't hold your breath, BD wasn't unlockable either. Also there's very little chance that (all) the disabled CCX will be fully functional.

According to the people who where at the event yesterday, every current launched Ryzen has XFR, which means also the Ryzen 7 1700. So the X has nothing to do with XFR.

7700k vs 1700 + Streaming. 7700k 82% vs 1700 100%.

It makes sense why intel started moving the core i3 branding to 4 core SKUs recently ... apparently i3 must offer what r3 offers ... now we wait to see some price adjustments across the line

What about the Ryzen 7 1800 and Ryzen 5 1600?

I kinda feel like AMD decided a few years ago to take a different path. Like following a different tech tree in an RTS. Sure you take damage for a while, maybe even risk losing your base, but when your new units are ready you and mop the floor with the competition.

UK pricing is about identical, just minus £10 on each. (So £489 for the 1800x)

No 4 or 6 core that has boost frequency that is higher than 8 core 1800x. =(
