AMD looks set to release a salvo of new processors to try and recapture some of the gains made by Intel's extensive set of Alder Lake desktop CPU releases this year. Prolific PC hardware leaker momomo_us has spotted some European retail pricing for the new and as yet officially unannounced AMD CPUs. We must take this with a pinch of salt, but are happy to see the reliable source has included both pre-and post-VAT prices for us to ponder over this time.

As well as the glamorous and highly anticipated new Ryzen 7 5800X3D, AMD is fleshing out its Ryzen 5000 range with some inbetweeners like the Ryzen 7 5700X and a decent selection of processors to compete directly against Intel's surge in sales in the lower-end Core i5 and i3 performance (plus Pentium and Celeron) categories. This thrust will be represented by the likes of the Ryzen 5 5600, 5500, 4500, and Ryzen 3 4100.

We reported on most of these processors being confirmed by a retailer in the Philippines only a couple of days ago, but now we have the actual pricing. The table below contains the Ryzen lineup, with new processors shown in italics. In addition, we have original Euro pricing alongside US dollar equivalents for your reference.

Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 SeriesMSRP
 Ryzen 9 5950X$799
 Ryzen 9 5900X$549
 Ryzen 7 5800X3D$475 / €428
 Ryzen 7 5800X$449
 Ryzen 7 5700X$318 / €287
 Ryzen 5 5600X$299
 Ryzen 5 5600$217 / €196
 Ryzen 5 5500$175 / €158

In addition to the above, the leaker's SKU pricing data suggests we will get a new Ryzen 5 4500 CPU at $146 / €132 and a Ryzen 3 4100 at $115 / €104. Due to being in the Ryzen 4000 family, we expect some of them to be based upon the Zen 2 CPU architecture or a modernized/modified form of it.

Data also indicates a trio of new Ryzen 5000 APUs (codenamed Cezanne, mixing Zen 3 CPU and Vega GPU) will be arriving. Oddly, these are unnamed in the inventory and price data, but one will be a 4C/8T part, with the other two offering 6C/12T configurations.

Referencing back to our earlier report on these processors again, rumors suggest that some of the new lower-end Ryzen chips fleshing out the series have been created from Cezanne APUs which didn't make the grade due to iGPU issues.

The logic behind the new Ryzen 4000 series (Zen 2, Renoir-X) CPUs isn't as clear, but we must consider the extent and depth of Intel's Alder Lake SKUs and AMD's desire to answer as best as it can. It would be hard to deny that AMD has neglected lower- and mid-range price points for quite some time.

With purported pricing beginning to leak, it shouldn't be long until we see AMD officially launch and release the above processors. Launch press releases and presentations will give us a better idea of how some of the more unexpected releases outlined above fit into its plans, and who might be expected to purchase these CPUs and APUs.

    For AMD to be charging that much money, it has to be one of these:
    1- They want to strong-arm their captive audience (AM4 users that were waiting for 3D stacked stuff).
    2- The CPU is really that good and the initial, internal, benchmarks didn't make it justice (fat chance) and it smokes the i7 12700 siblings and above.
    3- This is just initial pricing before they offer it at huge discounts, because no one will actually buy it, even given the above.
    4- They're just stupid.

    I'd like to think 1 or 3, but 4 is looking quite feasible.

    Regards.

    I will definitely buy it and sell my 3900x for half the cost or more. For me if it reaches parity with the 12700/k its a win for me and the platform I will be on for the coming 4-6 years.

    doubt it.

    the "benefit" is only in applications that will USE that extra cache.

    you are better off just waiting for zen 4.



    a "possible" 10% increase over 5800x....for $120 more?
    hell naw. thats almost as bad as intel selling a new cpu that is worse than old one.

    A 10% increase over a 5800x which is already a 20-30% increase over my 3900x where I want it seems worth it as the zenith of the AM4 platform I have invested in is worth it for me. Zen 4 will incur a large and relatively wasted expense compared to the projected performance it will give me over even a 5800x. Why would I spend hundreds more on a new platform when I can just drop in a new CPU that will probably be marginally worse. Worse case scenario the 5800x3d is worse or the same as the 5800x and I will just get that instead which will be considerably cheaper.

    I think 1 and then stocks will be non existent

    "possible" again its only a benefit if it uses that xtra cache. cpu is actually slower if it doesnt (due to lower clockspeeds than x version)
    also that was on a 5900x (which means likely even less benefit as its 5800x)

    AMD's already said AM5 will have similar life that AM4 had meaning its gonna have a long term upgrade path.

    also pcie5.0 (more future proof)

    also do u need to upgrade? a 3900x is a good cpu.

    Well this is cheaper than I expected. And all in all this is halo product just like Nvidia 3090 and AMD 6900xt in gpu segment and intel top model in CPU parts. Fast, but not for those who seek bang for the buck solution!

    I know of the scenarios in which the extra 3d cache is appreciated and that it has lower base clocks than a typical 5800x, I do not need any information on the differences between it and other similar CPUs.

    AM5 will surely have a long lifespan but since I am currently on AM4 and do not see myself building again for 4+ years there is no benefit creating e-waste out of my current computer to spend 600+ dollars on a new platform.

    Couple of things about "future proofing" as it seems pertinent. First off, its an objectively useless thing to attempt to achieve when 2-4 years later something many times faster will dwarf any performance 5 has over 4 et cetera. Secondly, PCIe 5 is nearly useless as it is already much faster than nearly all of the products currently on the market.

    Need to upgrade? Well that is a question that has no answer that is not opinionated, but since that is my opinion I will say, yes. The 3900x is more of a productivity chip than I require compared to the things I will benefit from like fewer, more potent cores. I agree that the 3900x is still a completely relevant chip and I have not decided if I am going to get a 5800x or 5800x3d yet, I await benchmarks of the 5800x3d.
