AMD R7 Ryzen Processors: Prices For US And UK Revealed
Euro pricing of the top three AMD Ryzen processors was leaked yesterday. Now, prices have been leaked from the US and the UK. It seems that the Ryzen R7 1800X, R7 1700X and 1700 will be the first Ryzen processors to hit the store shelves. It's also announced that the R7 1800X and R7 1700X will be rolling out without any heat sink fan included, and only the R7 1700 will be ship out with a stock cooler. Intel has already done that with their Core i5 and i7 processors. The SKUs/ part # of the said processors seems very accurate. The only thing unclear is if the prices of these processors are exact or at least near SRP. Here are the US and UK prices below.
