AMD Ryzen 3000 XT CPU Philippine Prices


AMD Philippines today sent us the official MSRP of their Ryzen XT processors which comprises of three refresh SKUs: the 12-core Ryzen 9 3900XT, the 8-core Ryzen 7 3800XT and 6-core Ryzen 5 3600XT. The CPUs will have a slightly increase clock speeds but will be practically similar to their non-XT counterpart. When reached out if there is a price cut or displacement happening, AMD representatives told us that the CPUs will co-exist with each other in the market and no price cuts will occur.

MODEL SRP (PHP) VAT Inclusive
AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT 29,470.00
AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT 23,185.00
AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT 14,839.00

As always, Philippine MSRP are a little inflated due to taxes and other cost but expect to pay cheaper in cash. With supplies always arriving late in Philippine shores, we’ve checked with close retail partner PCHUB for pricing.

PCHUB Estimated prices for the Ryzen XT are below:

MODEL SRP (PHP) VAT Inclusive
AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT 24,050.00
AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT 15,650.00

AMD has not extended pricing to dealers as of yet so local supply availability is not yet guaranteed.

Are the AMD Ryzen CPU XTs worth it?

To be fair to AMD, the answer is complex but putting the consumer in mind, the answer is a resounding NO. With media colleagues posting minimal improvements in mulit-threaded workloads and still trailing Intel in single-threaded loads, the non-XT CPUs still offer the best value. For new builders, 12-core and 10-core are multimedia professional territory and we highly advise gamers and streamers to focus on the Ryzen 5 3600 which offers the best value amongst the current AMD stack as well as the Ryzen 7 3700X. For mixed-use video editors / gamers, with Adobe releasing their CUDA patch recently, Premiere Pro and After Effect has had overwhelmingly large performance improvements which leaves us to recommend getting a better GPU and focusing on a complimenting CPU like the Ryzen 5 3600 or for Intel, the 10700K 8-core CPU is a great choice

  1. but in a sense most cannot afford a 10700K 8-core CPU.so for most the logical choice cost to performance wise is still ryzen.But if one has cash to burn then do so.for most the answer is easy enough

    1. Agreed but if we’re talking non-XT parts. Also with regards to overall build cost, the i7 10700K has a cheaper route right now compared to a Ryzen 3800XT, which is its direct counterpart. Both have no coolers included but demand decent cooling, X570 supplies is dwindling and B550 is pretty much on the same price tier as a Z490. It’s a hard to summarize but long-term investment favor AMD while upfront reward in a purely gaming sense shifts the favor towards Intel in the short-term.

      Thanks for your input.
