Prices for AMD’s current-generation Ryzen 8000G APUs are already starting to drop as the Zen 5 platform approaches its launch. As usual, the price cuts are appearing first in the US, with some components selling for up to 34% less than their list price.

The folks at WCCFTech have compiled some of the best prices they’ve found for processors. Below, we’ve highlighted links to Newegg, a hardware giant in the US that’s already well-known to our readers:

  • Ryzen 7 8700G: from US$ 329.99 per US$ 299,99 (R$ 1.691)
  • Ryzen 5 8600G: from US$ 229.99 per US$ 199,99 (R$ 1.127)
  • Ryzen 5 8500G: from US$ 179.99 to US$ 159.99 (R$ 900)

Prices are as of the time of writing and may fluctuate. In any case, they show a downward trend for the Ryzen 8000G series of processors, at least abroad.

Price cuts of this type are not always reflected in Brazil, but prices should fall even further after the launch of the Ryzen 9000, based on Zen 5. This helps in the hope that we will see the price reduction reach our market as well eventually.

A price reduction on a given product is always normal when a new generation arrives, but in this case, in addition to speculation, we have leaks supporting the estimates.

Some of the Ryzen 9000 series models have appeared early in a European store, revealing their possible prices. With a price tag of €399 for the Ryzen 7 9700X, for example, it’s hard to justify the standardized prices for the Ryzen 8000G series.

The new generation of AMD processors is scheduled to be released later this month. In addition to the expected improvements in performance and efficiency, we will also see new features such as Curve Shaper. Read more about this Curve Optimizer tool by clicking here.
