Rumour: AMD’s high-end Ryzen CPU will cost less than $500

Rumour alert everyone. It appears that AMD’s high-end Ryzen CPU will actually cost less than $500. This model will compete with Intel’s Core i7-6900K and if this rumour is actually true, AMD will be offering its competitor at half the price.

AMD’z Ryzen 7 1800X is currently listed at $490 USD and 480 GBP, while Ryzen 7 1700X is priced at $382 or 375 GBP. On the other hand, AMD’s Ryzen 7 1700 is rumoured to be priced at $317 or 312 GBP.

As said, this is just a rumour so take it with a grain of salt. However, and if AMD manages to offer its CPUs at these prices, we’re all in for a treat.

AMD will launch its Ryzen CPUs in early March, so stay tuned for more!
