Online retailer listing gives idea of how much AMD's Ryzen 3000 processors will actually cost
A new price listing for AMD’s Ryzen 3000 series of desktop processors has been spotted. It seems the prices for the vaunted Matisse chips will remain attractive, and in this case each CPU comes with a specific cooler. As mentioned above, the 6-core Ryzen 5 3600 with Wraith Stealth cooler is listed at US$207.34, while the version with the higher TDP, the Ryzen 5 3600X, is advertised at US$256 and it comes with a Wraith Spire cooler.
The expected prices for those two chips were US$199 and US$249, respectively, so it seems only a few dollars has been added. Moving upwards through the Matisse series, the Ryzen 7 3700X with its eight cores and 16 threads is priced at US$344.46, which includes a Wraith Prism cooler. The 105 W TDP Ryzen 7 3800X with Wraith Prism cooler is listed with BLT at US$410.79. Yet again, both of these latter two prices are only a few dollars higher than the suggested prices: US$329 and US$399, respectively.
Those waiting to pick up the upcoming cream of the crop, the Zen 2 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X CPU, will be pleased to note that BLT has put a price of US$521.37 on this AMD processor, which also comes with a Wraith Prism cooler. This is only just over US$20 more than the reported SEP of US$499, which means AMD’s renowned price-performance reputation for its chips won’t be dented for the Ryzen 3000 series.
