AMD Ryzen 7000 series get significant price cuts in China
AMD Zen4 desktop is up to 27% cheaper for a limited time.
Just a few days ago, AMD implemented new pricing for Ryzen 5000 (Zen3) desktop CPU series through their official US store. However, it seems AMD is now applying a new pricing, although limited in time and only for Chinese buyers, for the Ryzen 7000 series.
According to Expreview, some new Ryzen 7000 SKUs will get up to 27% cheaper just before the popular 11.11 “Singles’ Day” sales. All four models will get significant price reduction are also offered in bundles with compatible motherboards.
AMD Ryzen 7000 limited time sales (Old → Promo pricing)
- Ryzen 9 7950X: ¥5499 ($765) → ¥3999 ($557) → ($208 / 27% cheaper)
- Ryzen 9 7900X: ¥4299 ($598) → ¥3299 ($459) → ($139 / 23% cheaper)
- Ryzen 7 7700X: ¥2999 ($417) → ¥2299 ($320) → ($97 / 23% cheaper)
- Ryzen 5 7600X: ¥2249 ($313) → ¥1699 ($236) → ($77 / 24% cheaper)
A quick conversion shows that some Ryzen 7000 SKUs will get up to 27% cheaper or will cost $208 less. At launch, all Ryzen 7000 SKUs were priceier than the official US pricing due to local sales taxes. However, this limited sale will reduce prices even below this level.
The flagship Ryzen 9 7950X will now cost 3999 RMB which is only 557 USD after conversion. Even the 6-core 7600X CPU is getting a 24% price cut to just $236 with direct currency exchange.
Of course, we would not recommend buying expensive PC hardware from abroad, specially with the cost of shipping and import taxes involved, not to mention potential problems with the warranty claims. Yet, it is still an interesting decision by AMD to lower the price on the CPU series are not even 1.5 months’ old.
