The 2018 AMD Ryzen Price Cut Details

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

In the latest version, we added the new Ryzen price list after the abolition of the 6% GST. We also added the 2nd Gen Ryzen processor prices. Some have called this a price cut, but it’s not. The prices are just lower because there’s no longer a 6% tax,

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.

Unfortunately, there was no further price cuts after the launch of the 2nd Gen Ryzen processors.

 

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.

AMD Ryzen 3 1200 $109 $109 No Change
AMD Ryzen 3 2200G $99

Generally, prices in Malaysia are 13-15% higher without 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 latest June 2018 AMD Ryzen price 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.

Cheaper Ryzen CPUs When Ryzen 2 Launches?

AMD is almost ready to launch the Ryzen 2 desktop processors, leading to speculation that it would herald the availability of cheaper Ryzen processors. Like everyone else, we love a good deal. Let’s see if the launch of Ryzen 2 will result in cheaper Ryzen processors!

 

No : AMD Just Gave Us Cheaper Ryzen CPUs!

AMD just announced a major Ryzen price cut on 1 February 2018. The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X, for example, received a $100 (22%) price cut, although in some countries (like here in Malaysia), it received a massive $228 (35%) price cut!

You can read more about the February 2018 Ryzen price cut, and our analysis in our article, The 2018 AMD Ryzen Price Cut Details Examined!

 

Yes : The Ryzen Models Being Replaced Will Be Cheaper

The AMD Ryzen 2 price list was leaked earlier, showing how AMD intends to position the four new Pinnacle Ridge models.

As you can see, three of the upcoming Ryzen 2 (Pinnacle Ridge) processors directly replace four of the first-generation Ryzen (Summit Ridge) processors :

Ryzen 7 1800X ($349) -> Ryzen 7 2700X ($369)
Ryzen 7 1700X ($309) / Ryzen 7 1700 ($299) -> Ryzen 7 2700 ($299)
Ryzen 5 1600X ($219) -> Ryzen 5 2600X ($249)

It is very likely that the Ryzen 7 1800X, Ryzen 7 1700X and Ryzen 7 1700 will be priced lower after Ryzen 2 hits the market. The Ryzen 5 1600X, though, will probably continue to be sold at $219.

The Ryzen 5 1400 and Ryzen 3 1200 are no longer mentioned in the leaked slide, because they’re being replaced by the Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G desktop APUs. However, we don’t see them being discounted, as they offer better CPU and memory performance than the APUs for those who don’t need the integrated Vega graphics.

The AMD Ryzen 3 Processor Tech Report

Last week, AMD invited us to a tech briefing on the AMD Ryzen 3 processors for the mainstream desktop market. This is a follow-up to their earlier teaser on the Ryzen 3, when they revealed the Ryzen Threadripper processor. We managed to create a video of both their presentation, as well as the Q&A session after that. Check them out!

 

The AMD Ryzen 3 Processors Revealed!

The tech briefing session was hosted by AMD PR Manager Iain Bristow, with three AMD spokespersons – James Prior (Senior Product Manager for AMD Client Desktop), Don Woligroski (Global Marketing Manager for AMD Desktop Processors) and Robert Hallock (Head of Global Technical Marketing, AMD).

In this 22-minute video presentation, they detailed the key performance advantages of the new Ryzen 3 processors over their Intel Core i3 competitors. They also talked about the introduction of the 7th Generation AMD A-Series and Athlon processors to the Socket AM4 platform.

The AMD team then took questions from members of the media for 10 minutes on the new Ryzen 3 processors.

Here are the key points :

  • The AMD Ryzen 3 processors have four processors cores, capable of processing 4 simultaneous threads.
  • All AMD Ryzen 3 processors feature the AMD SenseMI technology, and are multiplier-unlocked.
  • The first two AMD Ryzen 3 processors are the Ryzen 3 1300X and Ryzen 3 1200.[adrotate group=”2″]
  • They will both come with the low-profile AMD Wraith Stealth cooler.
  • The AMD Ryzen 3 1300X is up to 29% faster than the Intel Core i3-7300.
  • The AMD Ryzen 3 1300X is up to 17% faster than the Intel Core i3-7100.
  • AMD will make the Wraith MAX cooler, with RGB LED control, available for purchase for US$ 59.
  • AMD also announced the worldwide availability of the 7th Generation A-Series and Athlon processors to cater to entry-level PCs.
  • They also announced the availability of BIOS updates based on AGESA 1.0.0.6 (AMD Generic Encapsulated Software Architecture) which allows for better overclockability with 3200 MHz DDR4 memory compatibility.

The AMD Ryzen 3 Specifications & Availability Revealed!

AMD has finally announced the AMD Ryzen 3 specifications and availability! The Ryzen 3 CPUs are the highly-anticipated low-cost versions of the AMD Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 desktop processors. Check out the details, and the official video announcement below!

 

The AMD Ryzen 3 Specifications & Availability

The new AMD Ryzen 3 processors have 4 cores, and handle up to 4 simultaneous threads – one per core. This is because the Ryzen 3 processors do not support SMT (simultaneous multi-processing). Those who want SMT capability should look at their Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 brethren instead. AMD is launching the Ryzen 3 series with two processor models –  the AMD Ryzen 3 1300X and the AMD Ryzen 3 1200.

The AMD Ryzen 3 1300X has a base clock of 3.5 GHz and a boost clock of 3.7 GHz. The AMD Ryzen 3 1200, on the other hand, has a base clock of 3.1 GHz and a boost clock of 3.4 GHz. They both support XFR (eXtended Frequency Range). Here is a comparison of their specifications :

Specifications AMD Ryzen 3
1300X
AMD Ryzen 3
1200
Cores / Threads 4 / 4 4 / 4
Core Clock Speed 3.5 GHz 3.1 GHz
Boost Clock Speed 3.7 GHz 3.4 GHz
XFR Speed 3.9 GHz 3.45 GHz
L2 Cache Size 2 MB 2 MB
L3 Cache Size 8 MB 8 MB
Max. TDP 65 W 65 W

Like the Ryzen 7 and Ryzen 5 processors, the AMD Ryzen 3 processors use Socket AM4, and are therefore compatible with all AM4 motherboards, using the X370, B350 or A320 chipsets. They will both be on shelves on 27 July 2017.
