Ryzen 7000 versus Ryzen 5000: The street prices in a reality check

from Thilo Bayer
The first four processors with Ryzen 7000 can be bought, but what are the street prices like? And what is changing with Ryzen 5000 CPUs? We do the check.

Yesterday testers published their results for the first Ryzen 7000 CPUs, today the sale of the Zen 4 generation starts. We summarize the findings on street prices.

Street prices on launch day

First of all: If you would like to read the test of the Ryzen 9 7950X and the Ryzen 7 7700X, you should do so as preparation for the purchase. The test for the Ryzen 9 7900X and the Ryzen 5 7600X is already in progress. Today it is time to analyze the Ryzen 7000 and Ryzen 5000 street prices. Let’s remember: in the euro area, between 20 and 21.5 percent are added to the price recommendations in US dollars. With the 16-core flagship Ryzen 9 7950X, 699 US dollars becomes 849 euros. The previous-generation flagship Ryzen 9 5950X had a US retail price of $100 more at $799, but since the euro price was 1:1, it ended up at $799, which is $50 less than the 7950X.

Buy Ryzen 7000: More and more dealers with offers (update)

A look at the shops shows that most of them have offered the RRP 1:1 as the street price – with Ryzen 5000 there were still premium surcharges. This applies, for example for mind factory and for caseking. The 7600X is there at 359 euros, the 7700X at 479 euros, the 7900X at 669 euros and the 7950X at 849 euros – as previously communicated by AMD. There are minor surcharges, among other things at Alternate (between 20 and 30 euros) and interestingly also when buying directly through AMD. It is similar at Amazon.de. It will be exciting to see how the prices change in the coming days and weeks. And what prices Intel is asking for Raptor Lake.
