Ahead of any official announcement by AMD a Spanish website is claiming they have access to the new pricing structure for the upcoming AMD R7 Ryzen, which if correct indicate a fantastic value to performance ratio.
The leaked AMD Ryzen R7 Processor European prices cover three models of AMD’s overall Ryzen line-up, which take the form of the R7 1800X, the R7 1700X and the non-X, R7 1700 all providing 8-cores and 16-threads.
According to the leaked information :
These chips will feature base clocks in the order of 4 GHz for the 1800X; 3.8 GHz for the 1700X; and 3.7 GHz for the 1700. Overall european pricing (including taxes) is set at €599.99 for the 1800X; €469.99 for the 1700X; and a “measly” €389.95 for the 1700. As always, you can expect US pricing to be even more competitive; perhaps a $349 pricing for the 1700 chip (which also carries a 65W TDP to boot).
