Intel has just teased its next-gen Core i3/i5/i7-8000 series processors, and we know that AMD will release its new Ryzen CPUs led by the R7 1800X in just a few weeks time.

Now we're seeing some preliminary pricing on the higher-end Ryzen CPUs, with pricing leaked by shopblt.com, the same retailer that has listed AMD's previous CPUs with good accuracy. I've rounded up the prices, which is where we could expect them to fall when they're announced in the next couple of weeks.

  • R7 1700: $320
  • R7 1700X: $399
  • R7 1800X: $499

Remember that all of these processors are 8C/16 threads, which means they'll offer multi-threaded performance close to what Intel provides for $1000+ with its Core i7-6900K, and gaming performance in the range of the Core i7-6700K/7700K processors.

The R7 1700 is going to be a hugely popular CPU if AMD can price it at $320, as the motherboards for Ryzen should be much cheaper than competing boards with Intel's chipset. Now we just need to have the CPUs released, and in our grubby hands!
