The 2018 AMD Ryzen Price Cut Details

The original Ryzen price cut list was sparse, so we added US prices (after conversion), the price difference, and even the prices of the new Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G desktop APUs.

Malaysia Recommended Retail Price
(including 6% GST)
Launch Price (2017) New Price

AMD Ryzen 3 1200 RM 519 / ~$131 RM 459 / ~$116 RM 60 / ~$15

The 2018 AMD Ryzen price cut list showed price cuts across every Ryzen model. The biggest discount was a massive RM 900 / ~$228 discount on the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X. The least was a paltry RM 20 / ~$5 discount on the AMD Ryzen 3 1300X.

If you read our AMD Ryzen 3 2200G Review, you may have noticed that it is supposed to be $10 / ~RM 39 cheaper than the Ryzen 3 1200. Yet, AMD is pricing it ABOVE the Ryzen 3 1200 here in Malaysia.

 

The 2018 AMD Ryzen Price Cut In The US

Here was the AMD Ryzen price cut list announced for the United States. If you compare how the Ryzen price cut list in Malaysia compares to the Ryzen price cut list in the US, you can see some differences.

US Recommended Retail Price
(without taxes)
Launch Price (2017) New Price
(1 Feb 2018)
Difference
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X $999 $999 No Change
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X $799 $799 No Change
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1900X $549 $449 – $100
AMD Ryzen 7 1800X $449 $349 – $100
AMD Ryzen 7 1700X $399 $309 – $90
AMD Ryzen 7 1700 $329 $299 – $30
AMD Ryzen 5 1600X $249 $219 – $30
AMD Ryzen 5 1600 $219 $189 – $30
AMD Ryzen 5 1500X $189 $174 – $15
AMD Ryzen 5 2400G $169
AMD Ryzen 5 1400 $169 $169 No Change
AMD Ryzen 3 1300X $129 $129 No Change
AMD Ryzen 3 1200 $109 $109 No Change
AMD Ryzen 3 2200G $99

Generally, prices in Malaysia are 13-15% higher before adding the 6% GST, but every single Ryzen model received some kind of discount.

On the other hand, the Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and 1920X processors, or the Ryzen 5 1400Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 3 1200 processors were not discounted in the US.

Also, AMD positioned (and priced) the Ryzen 3 1300X CPU above Ryzen 3 2200G in the US, while the opposite is true in Malaysia. On the other hand, the Ryzen 5 2400G is slightly more expensive than the Ryzen 5 1400 CPU in Malaysia.

The new AMD Ryzen price cut list also show that the Ryzen 5 1400 and Ryzen 3 1200 have not been phased out. They were supposed to be replaced by the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G desktop APUs. But it looks like, AMD will continue to sell them, alongside the new Ryzen desktop APUs.
