AMD's China-exclusive Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F have arrived at Canadian and European retailers. Hardware detective momomo_us first spotted them on Twitter. In any event, take the listings with a pinch of salt since the pricing could be placeholders.

Fortunately, AMD officially launched the Ryzen 8000F Series APUs in March in the Chinese market. Third-party benchmarks show they compare pretty favorably to their non-F counterparts in overall scores despite the disabled components. Ryzen 5 7500F shows surprisingly potent single-core potential compared to its contemporaries, likely due to its more substantial L3 cache than its more modern counterparts.

Finally, the actual listings don't look too bad, though the newer PC-Canada listings above Ryzen 5 7500F seem somewhat inflated at the time of writing despite how close Ryzen 5 8400F is to Ryzen 5 7500F. However, they are also out of stock, which may change once they're available for purchase again. The Ryzen 5 7500F was also spotted in US/European listings on ShopBLT ahead of its official global release last year.

PC-Canada listed the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F twice with different pricing. The MPK version or multipack typically consists of a box with a ton of processors with coolers and no fancy packaging—the kind that chipmakers sell to system integrators or OEMs. On the contrary, the boxed versions are retail products with pretty packaging, Ryzen stickers, and user manuals. Therefore, the boxed versions are usually more expensive than their multipack counterparts.

The Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F were typically found inside prebuilt machines in the Chinese market. The latest retailer listings from European and Canadian retailers insinuate that AMD may launch the chips globally.

    AMD Ryzen 7 8700F — $574 CAD on PC-Canada.comAMD Ryzen 5 8400F — $405 CAD on

    I would rather take the pricing of the BOX variants of these chips, since this is what the final retail version would be priced and reflected accordingly, unlike the mpk and tray price tags.

    So based on this, the Ryzen 7 8700F & Ryzen 5 8400F APUs would cost $752.99 CAD and $481.99 CAD, respectively. Highly inflated price, so obviously these are just placeholders.

    The final retail price should be at least -10-15% lower than the MSRPs of the original "G" variants, otherwise AMD would be in a tough spot in the consumer CPU market to sell these iGPU-less F chips.

    Thankfully, Funtech shop has listed the boxed pricing, but still on a higher side. Ryzen 5 8400F is listed for 199.90 Euros, slightly more expensive than the boxed Ryzen 5 8500G APU.

    The Danish internet store I normally use you have OEM 7500F on sale for 1299dkr with 25% sale tax
    That is 175€ or 187$ so raw price without sale tax 146€ or 156$
    The store has the chip in stock and say that it's a 12% discount, so that can indicate the price here in EU
