Now the pricing or at least the MSRP type pricing information is published for the AMD Ryzen Gen3 CPUs.
The Ryzen 9 3900x 12 core 24 thread 3.8Ghz Base – 4.6Ghz Boost clock CPU is slated for $499
The Ryzen 7 3800x 8 core 16 thread 3.7Ghz base to 4.5Ghz Boost clock CPU is slated for $399
The Ryzen 7 3700x 8 core 16 thread 3.6Ghz base to 4.4Ghz boost clock CPU is $329
I know these processors shake the tree and surpass Intel’s offerings which I am very pleasantly excited about. Competition brings down the price and increases the capabilities of the products for consumers. We all win. I am a bit disappointed at the MSRP levels. The MSRP type prices fall approximately into the same values as Intel’s pricing for the competing products. Kudos to AMD for becoming the Victor in the speed segment of consumer level processors. If the retail prices actually are significantly lower for retail than I anticipate, AMD has just hit the ball OUT of the park. This is certainly a home run for them in any case.
These prices are MSRP type values and the actual pricing could be 20% lower or even less on most of the sites such as newegg and amazon. July 7, 2019 is the release date for the processors to go on sale.
I have been firmly entrenched in the Intel CPU camp for nearly 20 years. AMD has not measured up until Ryzen was released. I built an AMD Ryzen 2 2700 CPU based system in April of 2019 to see for myself how well the Ryzen 2 CPUs stack up to Intel’s offerings. I was very happy with the results of that endeavor. Now AMD is in the lead! Now if AMD can just topple NVIDIA off of THEIR high horse in the Video card market space ; )
