With launch just a few days ahead, AMD prices are still yet to be announced for the new Ryzen 5000 series of processors built on AMD’s newest Zen3 architecture. Still on 7nm, Zen 3 is targeting single threaded performance uplift to finally take away the market performance advantage that Intel flaunts particularly their single threaded performance.
In a Facebook by our Malaysian colleagues Tech Critter, they have published the official MSRP as provided by AMD Malaysia. AMD Philippines should follow soon but let’s make some forecasts.
Given AMD’s current price increase and the Philippines 12% tax, I am assuming possible prices to fall in the range below:
|PHP Conversion with 12% TAX||43019.37||29063.37||23829.87||15688.87||12% TAX INC|
These prices look just about right given the initial leak we had with a local dealer who published the prices earlier last week. Sadly the listing also noted that these CPUs are only available as a bundle with a B550 or X570 motherboard. Given that potential early adopters already have motherboards, this defeats the purpose of AMD’s forward compatibility.
|ASSUMED PHP MSRP||49470||33200||29900||18500||12%|
|PC Configure leaked prices||44000||32000||26500||17500||Included|
AMD launches their Ryzen 5000 CPUs on November 5. Philippine availability is not yet confirmed on launch date.
