Well-known PC hardware news site VideoCardz has obtained details on the pricing and packaging of AMD’s upcoming Ryzen 7000 series chips.

The publication received the information from a source who shared part of a slideshow of a recent presentation that included a render of the top-end Ryzen 9 chips’ packaging.

According to the source, the higher-end Ryzen 7 7800X, Ryzen 9 7900X, and Ryzen 9 7950X will launch with slightly more expensive price tags than their Ryzen 5000 series predecessors.

That means customers should expect to pay more than the following amounts for these chips:

  • Ryzen 7 7800X — $449
  • Ryzen 7 7900X — $549
  • Ryzen 9 7950X — $799

The render of the packaging for the Ryzen 9 chips is shown below.

Moving down the line-up, the Ryzen 7 7700X will launch at the same manufacturer’s recommended selling price (MSRP) as the Ryzen 5700X — $299 (R4,961).

In South Africa, the latter currently goes for R5,399 from Titan Ice and R5,299 from Wootware.

Pricing for the entry-level Ryzen 5 7600X was not shared.

VideoCardz also advised readers to take the pricing with a pinch of salt as the Ryzen 7 7800X details had not been confirmed by any previous reports.

AMD CEO Lisa Su recently confirmed the company planned to launch the Zen 4-based chips in the US Fall season, which starts on 5 September and ends on 24 November 2022.

According to VideoCardz’s source, AMD will launch the Ryzen 7000 series on 15 September 2022. Well-known hardware YouTuber Moore’s Law is Dead also previously shared a September launch date.

The company is expected to provide the first official details around the chips’ performance during a public presentation on 29 August 2022.

The table below shows the expected specifications and pricing of the AMD Ryzen 7000 series based on current leaks.
