Thanks to a flood of leaks, we know almost everything there is to know about the Ryzen 7000 “Raphael” CPUs. This time, we get to look at the alleged retail box for the Ryzen 9 7000 SKUs. Furthermore, we also get some pricing details about AMD’s upcoming Zen 4 processors.

Courtesy of VideoCardz, we may have gotten our first look at the retail packaging for the upcoming Ryzen 9 7000 CPUs. Reportedly taken from an internal presentation, the packaging looks quite different than the one for the Ryzen 9 5000 parts. That’s about it when it comes to the box of the Zen 4 flagships.

VideoCardz also received some pricing information regarding the different Ryzen 7000 SKUs. The new information differs from our previous report that had the Zen 4 parts starting from US$229 and going all the way up to US$799. The Ryzen 9 7900 and the Ryzen 9 7950X will cost more than their Zen 3 counterparts, the Ryzen 9 5900X and the Ryzen 9 5950X. In other words, the Zen 4 flagship SKUs will cost more than US$549 for the Ryzen 9 7900X and US$799 for the Ryzen 9 7950X.

The Ryzen 7 7800X, a CPU we know little about, is also expected to cost more than its predecessor the Ryzen 7 5800X at >US$449. On the other hand, the Ryzen 7 7700X is rumored to be as expensive as the outgoing Ryzen 7 5700X at US$299. Sadly, we don’t have any information regarding the entry-level Ryzen 5 SKUs.

AMD is reportedly planning to launch the Ryzen 7000 CPUs on September 15, so we won’t have to wait too long to find out how much the chips officially cost.
