Thinking about getting a Ryzen 5 7500F? Importing may be the only way, as sources with Tom’s Hardware have revealed that the new processor, which lacks integrated graphics, will only be available in China, with no release planned in the U.S. or other territories for the time being. That said, the Ryzen 5 7500F could very well come to other countries based on what AMD did with the Ryzen 5 3500X, a CPU that was initially released in China in 2020 but later made its way to the U.S, albeit months later.

AMD will first bring the chip to China retailers and Etailers, but the chips will also be released to SIs (system integrators), so systems built around the chips will also come to the Chinese market. The Ryzen 5 7500F will drop into standard AM5-socket motherboards, so the systems won’t be completely custom affairs like the China-exclusive AMD 4700S Desktop Kit we reviewed. Both Intel and AMD have offered regions-specific chips in the past, so they aren’t unprecedented. In fact, AMD released a US-only Ryzen 5 5600X3D just last week.
