Upcoming Ryzen 5000 and Ryzen 4000 CPUs Listed By French Retailers for the First Time Confirming Previous Reports
Yesterday, we wrote that AMD is planning 10 new CPU launches in April with public announcements coming in the following days. These SKUs would include both Zen 2 and Zen 3 dies as AMD hopes to clear its remaining inventory before Zen 4 launches in the second half of the year. You can check out the article to get up to date on all the CPUs that are set to release, and their subsequent specs and rumored pricing.
Today’s report is essentially a confirmation of all the leaks that have surfaced in the past week surrounding the upcoming AMD CPUs. Firstly, on Tuesday March 8th, the pricing for Ryzen 7 5800X3D leaked out to be $449 USD then, yesterday the prices for the remaining nine SKUs were also unearthed. Now, we’re getting the first somewhat official confirmation on these rumors.
Popular leaker @momomo_us tweeted the OPN (product) codes for the Ryzen 5000/4000 CPUs set to be unveiled this month. By simply reverse-searching the codes on Google, you can find listings on multiple French retailer websites including 2Compute, CompuFirst, and PC21. Take what you’re about to see with a grain of salt, though, as retailers put placeholder pricing on their sites all the time for upcoming SKUs, but these still match with the leaked MSRPs nonetheless.

Listed vs. leaked prices
First up, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, the Zen3D refresh to the standard 5800X with AMD’s 3D V-Cache stacked SRAM technology, shows up on two websites but the price is listed at one retailer only at £428 EUR. The leaked MSRP for the 5800X3D is $449 USD which converts to £409 EUR so the price on the website is just slightly above the leak, though it can be argued that it’s still within the margin of error.
Next up, the 8-core 16-thread Ryzen 7 5700X can be found at three retailers with the price ranging from £263 EUR to £310 EUR. Compared to the original leaked MSRP of $299 (~£230 EUR), these placeholder prices are considerably higher. All in all, 5700X should cost less than the Ryzen 7 5800X, which itself will see a price cut to $399 or below once the Ryzen 7 5800X3D launches. We’re currently expecting a ~$30 discrepancy between the 5800X3D, 5800X, 5700X and 5600X. Lastly, the Ryzen 5 5600 was also seen listed for £196 EUR at 2Compute.
Then, two Ryzen 4000 SKUs are also listed at 2Compute‘s website with the Ryzen 3 4100 at £104 EUR and the Ryzen 4 4500 at £132 EUR. Both of those prices are pretty much identical to the leaked USD prices from yesterday. However, do note that 2Compute’s website has double listings for these two SKUs, therefore the Ryzen 3 4100 is also listed at £100 EUR while the Ryzen 5 4500 is listed at £127 EUR as well, for some reason.
AMD should be officially unveiling most of these CPUs on March 15th with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D being announced at some other date. The processors will then be released in three different batches, as seen below. With these SKUs out and about, AMD would have made the way clear for Ryzen 7000 (Zen 4) in H2 2022, and the market will now be flooded with even more options for people who’ve been waiting for something new since Zen 3’s initial launch.
