AMD Ryzen 9000 “Zen 5” CPUs listed online at much lower prices than Ryzen 7000 MSRPs


AMD's next-generation Ryzen 9000 “Zen 5” desktop CPUs are once again listed online and priced well below the Ryzen 7000 MSRPs.

AMD Ryzen 9000 “Zen 5” desktop CPUs could offer incredible value on the AM5 platform Based on the latest retail listings, the 9950X is 190 euros cheaper than the MSRP of the 7950X

A few days ago, we reported the first retail listing of the AMD Ryzen 9000 “Zen 5” desktop CPUs. Now, a new retailer has listed all four chips including the Ryzen 9 9950X, Ryzen 9 9900X, Ryzen 7 9700X, and Ryzen 5 9600X available for pre-order with availability until August 2, which is just a few days after the official launch which is planned for July 31.

According to a retail listing by Funtech, all four chips are listed with their pre-order prices, though we can't confirm if these are official. What we can tell is that they seem to be much lower than the MSRP of the Ryzen 7000 “Zen 4” desktop CPUs at launch, so let's start with the top chips first.

The AMD Ryzen 9 9950X 16-core CPU is priced at €659.90, which is €190 cheaper than the official MSRP of the Ryzen 9 7950X, which sold for €849 at launch. It's also much lower than the €789.99 MSRP of the Ryzen 9 7950X3D at launch. Of course, both Ryzen 7000 chips have received various discounts since then and the same retailer is offering these chips at €600.15 (Ryzen 9 7950X3D) and €550.18 (Ryzen 9 7950X). The price is very close to the discounted rates and is going to be great for new PC builders who are planning to shift to Zen 5 CPUs.

Next, we have the AMD Ryzen 9 9900X 12-core CPU which is priced at €499.90 and is €170 cheaper than the official MSRP of the Ryzen 9 7900X and €180 cheaper than the official MSRP of the Ryzen 9 7900X3D. Once again, this is a huge price drop for a 12-core SKU and should be very competitive against Intel's high-end Core i9 offerings.

Moving down the stack, we have the 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 9700X which is priced at €399.90. This is €80 less priced than the Ryzen 9 7900X and €110 cheaper than the official MSRP of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D CPU. Keep in mind that this CPU may get an update with a 120W TDP as we reported here as AMD wants to showcase the performance gains of Zen 5 in games and by increasing the TDP, they may succeed in their popular 7800X3D which is one of the best-selling processors in the market right now.

Finally, we have the Ryzen 5 9600X which is priced at €309.90 and this is a €50 drop compared to the official MSRP of the Ryzen 5 7600X which has a retail price of €359. So if we compare the retail listed prices compared to the official MSRP of the Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs, we can see that all of them have a big drop as shown in the table below:

AMD Ryzen 9000 “Zen 5” Desktop CPU Listing (Funtech):

CPU Name Listed Price Ryzen 7000 MSRP Ryzen 7000 (current) Ryzen 7000X3D (MSRP) Ryzen 7000X3D (current) Versus predecessor (non-X3D)
Ryzen 9 9950X €569.90 7950X (€849) €550.18 7950X3D (€789) €600.15 -€190
Ryzen 9 9900X €499.90 7900X (€669) €399.81 7900X3D (€679) €425.25 -€170
Ryzen 7 9700X €399.90 7700X (€479) €331.54 7800X3D (€509) €368.21 -€80
Ryzen 5 9600X €309.90 7600X (€359) €219.12 N/A N/A -€50
  • Ryzen 9 9950X (Listing) vs Ryzen 9 7950X Official MSRP = -32.9%
  • Ryzen 9 9900X (Listing) vs Ryzen 9 7900X Official MSRP = -25.4%
  • Ryzen 7 9700X (Listing) vs Ryzen 7 9700X Official MSRP = -16.7%
  • Ryzen 5 9600X (Listing) vs Ryzen 5 9600X Official MSRP = -13.9%

We know these prices are still preliminary listings at this point, but if they're anywhere close to an indication of the final MSRP, existing and new AM5 PC builders are in for a treat. This would also mean we could see similar price points for the next-generation Ryzen 9000X3D 3D V-Cache parts, which are expected to launch a few months after the “X” launch.
