AMD Ryzen 9000 CPU Prices Lower than Ryzen 7000, Ryzen 7 9800X3D Launch in Q4 2024?

AMD’s Ryzen 9000 processors are on track to launch next month, featuring the Zen 5 core architecture on the TSMC 4nm (N4P) process node. The chipmaker promises an IPC bump of 16%, with a generational uplift of up to 34% in gaming and 56% in content creation. Much of this can be attributed to the 2x gain in L1/L2 cache bandwidth, and faster memory clocks (DDR5-8000). And then there’s the pricing. The Ryzen 9000 CPUs will launch at lower price tags than their 7000-series predecessors, or so claims “Moore’s Law is Dead.”

AMD Ryzen 9000 CPU Prices
  • The Ryzen 9 9950X will be priced up to $649, $50 less than the launch price of the Ryzen 9 7950X.
  • The Ryzen 9 9900X will cost up to $499, or at least $50 less than the Ryzen 9 7900X’s launch MSRP.
  • The Ryzen 7 9700X is said to cost between $329-$379, making it $20 to $70 cheaper than the Ryzen 7 7700X at launch.
  • The Ryzen 5 9600X will cost between $249-$299, making it up to $50 more affordable than the Ryzen 5 7600X.

The Ryzen 9000X3D processors, including the R7 9800X3D, will allegedly launch in the fourth quarter of 2024. MLID’s sources claim that AMD will reveal more details about the Zen 5 chips at an upcoming event (Tech Day?). The next-gen 3D V-Cache CPUs will come with fewer thermal constraints which means higher boost clocks and potential overclocking support. There’s also talk of two X3D cache dies on the Ryzen 9 SKUs, but I wouldn’t be too sure yet.

According to older rumors, the Ryzen 9000X3D lineup will be announced at CES 2025.
