Preliminary prices for AMD’s new Ryzen 7000 Zen 4 processors have been published online. On momomo_us Twitter, (opens in new tab) That’s currently a lot higher than AMD’s Ryzen 5000 parts. The cheapest Zen 4 CPU, the Ryzen 5 7600X, starts at $340 and the flagship Ryzen 9 7950X starts at a whopping $906.
Prices are from PC Canada, and the hardware is more expensive outside the US market. Pricing can be a little tricky as listings can also be placeholders. Compared to the MSRP, these prices are reasonable, representing a price increase of around 10% to 12% compared to when the Ryzen 5000 first launched. But these prices are much more dramatic as the Ryzen 5000 has been out for a few years and has seen a significant price drop in recent months.
Those high prices, combined with more expensive AM5 motherboards and even more expensive DDR5 memory, make the Ryzen 7000 an expensive platform to get, and more expensive than Intel Alder Lake systems.

|CPU||original price||Converted (USD) Price|
|Ryzen 7 7700X||$631||$494|
|Ryzen 9 7900X||$798||$625|

Ryzen 7000 is probably out in less than a month (rumored to launch on September 15th) and the Ryzen platform will feature a new AM5 socket, PCIe 5.0, DDR5 support, and unique performance enhancements. brings many improvements to
The official performance boost over Ryzen 5000 is typically 18%, with single-threaded performance up 15% and multi-threaded performance up 35%. These improvements come from the new Zen 4 architecture, which boosts the core’s IPC by 8-10% and boosts clock speeds to 5.5 GHz.
As with the previous two Ryzen generations, AMD hasn’t increased the core count for this generation and Ryzen 7000 still peaks at 16. Rumor has it that at launch he will have 6, 8, 12, and 16 core models available. We expect his quad-core Ryzen 3 chips to finally complete his Ryzen 7000 lineup.
|Ryzen 7000 price||Ryzen 5000 price||Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake Pricing|
|Ryzen 5 7600X – $340||Ryzen 5 5600X – $199||Core i5 12600K – $279|
|Ryzen 7 7700X – $494||Ryzen 7 5700X – $268||Core i7 12700K – $399|
|Ryzen 9 7900X – $625||Ryzen 9 5900X – $398||Core i9 12900K – $589|
|Ryzen 9 7950X – $906||Ryzen 9 5950X – $546||Core i9 12900KS – $734|
It will be interesting to see how the Ryzen 7000 behaves in the market post-launch.Not only will AMD have to compete with Intel on both Alder Lake and upcoming Raptor Lake parts, but it will also have to deal with the previous generation of Ryzen. The 5000 is so cheap right now that it has to compete with AMD itself. Historically, AMD will likely continue to cut prices on a gradual basis until it stops producing Zen 3 processors altogether.
A good example of this is the Ryzen 7 5800X3D. Assuming the current rumors are true that the chip will get its first big price cut before the Ryzen 7000 launches. It makes a perfectly legitimate competitor. Additionally, we found the Ryzen 7 5800X3D outperforms the Core i9-12900K in manual overclocking. So when it comes to gaming performance, it’s no slouch against next-gen CPUs.
