AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Leak Teases Sleek Packaging, Higher Pricing for Premium SKUs

A healthy boost in performance isn’t the only thing that prospective Ryzen 7000 Series owners can look forward to.

Per a leaked image shared by VideoCardz, AMD’s next-generation processors will also come packaged in a pretty sleek-looking box, one that’s predominately black with orange accents that make the model number hard to miss. The image reportedly stems from an “internal presentation at AMD,” and while it’s easy to Photoshop things these days, the photo seems authentic enough as an evolution of the aesthetics that red team used for its Zen 3-based desktop chips.

There’s more to this leak than just packaging, however, as it also includes a teaser for what AMD is supposedly planning to price some of its Ryzen 7000 Series processors at. Here’s how the information was received, per VideoCardz:

  • Ryzen 7 7700X MSRP = Ryzen 7 5700X MSRP
  • Ryzen 7 7800X MSRP > Ryzen 7 5800X MSRP
  • Ryzen 9 7xy0X MSRP > Ryzen 9 5xy0X MSRP

If these bullet points prove to be true, the flagship Ryzen 9 7950X processor will cost over $799, which is what the Ryzen 9 5950X is officially priced at, while the Ryzen 7 7800X will cost over $449. The Ryzen 7 7700X, on the other hand, should cost $299, based on the idea that it will share the MSRP with its previous-gen sibling.

AMD is expected to launch its first AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors and X670 motherboards in September. These will reportedly comprise the Ryzen 9 7950X, Ryzen 9 7900X, Ryzen 7 7700X, and Ryzen 5 7600X.

It’s unclear when the Ryzen 7 7800X might show up, assuming that AMD doesn’t surprise everyone by launching it alongside the rest of the pack next month.
