AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Will Cost $499, Ryzen 7 1700X Costs $399

Previously we talked about the Ryzen 7 1700X costing $399 and we have more confirmations about that being the price. The pricing was posted on Amazon and although these pages have now been removed from the site, nothing can be tucked away on the internet and we have screenshots to show you just that. The Amazon posts also confirmed that the release of the AMD Ryzen CPUs was indeed March 2nd so we will be able to get a look at these CPUs in a few days time. Let’s talk about the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X.

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X Price

The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X, on the other hand, is $100 more expensive than the 1700X and that is because you will be getting more performance for the money that you are playing. AMD Ryzen CPUs will be available bundled with CPU coolers as well as sold separately. At least that is what we can make out of these posts. It will be interesting to see what kind of value these bundle offers will be able to provide to the average consumer.

Reports claim that there will be no shortage of AMD Ryzen 7 CPUs but there might be a shortage of cooling solutions for the AM4 platform along with AM4 motherboards. That would be a bummer as getting a CPU without being able to install it in a motherboard and get it up and running is not the best thing in the world. Especially if you are a PC enthusiast. If you are someone like me then you want everything to be up and running in no time at all.
