AMD is close to the release of their Ryzen processors, with 17 chips expected to be unveiled in the Ryzen family from the R3, R5, and R7 processors.

Now we're seeing some preliminary pricing on the R7 1800X at around 600 EUR or $641, the Ryzen R7 1700X at 470 EUR or $502, and the 8C/16T chip in the R7 1700 priced at 390 EUR - or $416. We could see these prices slightly higher, and I think a $699 price will be applied to the flagship R7 1800X processor, personally.

 

As for the launch, it's being said it'll happen late February, with a retail launch of March 2. My industry sources say that the chips will be hitting 4.2-4.3GHz maximum when overclocked, while LN2 overclockers should hit 5GHz easily.
