AMD updates Ryzen SKU pricing to counter Intel

LAS VEGAS, NV — 2017 was by many measures a breakout year for AMD and some of the first news out at the beginning of 2018 is its plans to update 'suggested etailer pricing' across most of its Ryzen processor SKUs. This affects the spectrum of the Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 range of desktop processors and even a Threadripper variant. Perhaps the biggest surprise is the price drop of AMD's highest Ryzen 7 1800X, coming down from its original launch price of $499 to $349.

Also tying in with the price drops is the listing of the two Raven Ridge APUs, the Ryzen 3 2200G ($99) which features four cores of Zen and Vega 8 integrated graphics, and the Ryzen 5 2400G ($169) with four cores, eight threads, and Vega 11 integrated graphics. This translates as 512 and 702 streaming processors respectively.

The only Threadripper to see a price drop is the 1900X, from $549 to $449. The 1700X gets a $90 drop, while the popular 1600X/1600 are reduced by $30. It is worth noting that retailer pricing for Ryzen chips has been coming down anyway since the launch, however, this is the first move from AMD to adjust the Suggested Etailer Pricing (SEP).
