Retail listings of AMD's latest Ryzen 5000 CPUs have surfaced in Europe, as hardware sleuth @momomo_us has revealed. The leaker has found one shop with listings for the Ryzen 5 5500GT, Ryzen 5 5600GT, Ryzen 7 5700X3D, and Ryzen 5 8600G. Per @momomo_us, the 5500GT already has widespread listings across German and Austrian retailers, as seen on Geizhals, which is basically the PCPartPicker of those two countries.
@momomo_us didn't reveal the retailer where all four CPUs were found, but we discovered it was Gesci, located in France. We also discovered that the 5700X3D has more listings across Europe, at the Danish store ComputerSalg and the German retailer Notebook Sektor.
|Row 0 - Cell 0
|Ryzen 5 5500GT
|1,094 DKK (€147)
|Ryzen 5 5600GT
|Ryzen 7 5700X3D
|2,310 DKK (€310)
|Ryzen 5 8600G
Although these retailers operate in three different countries, they can largely agree on pricing for the 5500GT and 5700X3D, which are listed for around €150 and €300, respectively. Those prices aren't all that much cheaper than the Ryzen 5 5500 or the Ryzen 7 5800X3D in Europe, and actually seem to be more expensive compared to some retailers.
The absence of the 5600GT at three of the four retailers, even if the 5500GT was available, is a little strange, especially when it seems the 5500GT and the 5600GT are just different models of the same silicon. It's not clear if there's any significance to this, however, and if there is, what it means is unclear at the moment.
Ryzen 8000G SKUs were far more elusive than they were in December when the entire lineup was spotted at two U.S. retailers. Those listings have since been removed, so it's possible that stores are now being more careful to not leak AMD's upcoming processors. Gesci was the only retailer we could find with any Ryzen 8000 SKU, and it was just the Ryzen 5 8600G.
Since retail listings usually don't go up more than a couple of months ahead of launch, it's looking increasingly likely that these CPUs and APUs will get revealed at CES 2024. Although these new Ryzen 5000 models aren't all that interesting, AMD probably wants to capitalize on the widespread usage of the AM4 socket, which can offer better value and lower prices than the newer AM5 socket.

8600G seems far more expensive than I was hoping. Boo.Reply
Hopefully the real prices will be lower. CES is soon so we won't have to wait too long hopefully.
That pricing makes the 5700x3d more expensive, than what you can get a 5800x3d for now, in the US.Reply
Will be interesting to see how many AM4 motherboards actually get support for these CPUs.Reply
I fail to see the point of having a 5700X3D if it is just a lower clocked 5800X3D. It’s just going to cannibalise the latter when it comes to sales. I mean cheaper is good for consumers, but AMD can easily achieve this by lowering the price of 5800X3D instead of creating a “new” SKU.Reply

The point of the 5700x3d is not scrapping dies that didn't quite meet the binning standards, for a 5800x3d, and instead selling them. This in reality, is a cost savings move. It's not making a new SKU just because they can. Better to make some money on a chip, instead of it just being E-waste. This is a common practice for AMD, and even Intel. A 5600x3d, for instance, is essentially a 5800x3d with 2 cores disabled. On intel side, it is akin to the KF chips being K chips with the IGP disabled.
