RYZEN 9000 DESKTOP processors release date spotted

It's coming!

Earlier this month we saw AMD unveiling its new Ryzen 9000 series desktop processors at Computex 2024. The new desktop processors feature AMD’s next-gen Zen 5 architecture, promising approximately 15% faster performance. During the announcement, AMD said that the new chips will arrive in July 2024, however, online retailer B&H suggests that preorders will only begin at 9 a.m. ET on July 31.

Additionally, we also have (unofficial) pricing information for the upcoming CPUs. According to a report, the flagship AMD Ryzen 9 9950X has been listed on Canada Computers for CAD 839 ($610), which is noticeably lower than the $699 launch price of the Ryzen 9 7950X. Another retailer from the Philippines has listed the entire Ryzen 9000 desktop CPU lineup with the Ryzen 9 9950X priced at 38,000 Pesos ($648), Ryzen 9 9900X at 35,000 Pesos ($597), Ryzen 7 9700X at 24,000 Pesos ($409), and the Ryzen 5 9600X at 18,500 Pesos ($315).


Performance-wise, the upcoming Ryzen 9000 series promises improvements despite maintaining similar core configurations and clock speeds to previous generations. The new Zen 5 architecture is built on a 4nm node, and AMD claims that it delivers a 16% increase in Instructions Per Clock (IPC) over its predecessors.


  • Ryzen 9 9950X – 16-cores: 38,000 Philippine pesos ($648)
  • Ryzen 9 9900X – 12-cores: 35,000 Philippine pesos ($597)
  • Ryzen 7 9700X – 8-cores: 24,000 Philippine pesos ($409)
  • Ryzen 5 9600X – 6-cores: 18,500 Philippine pesos ($315)

Due to the fluctuating exchange rate, we can easily assume these represent $649, $599, $399, and $299 MSRP, respectively. Even so, some of these CPUs still carry an unusual price tag – namely the 9950X and 9900X. Where the six and eight-core models replaced their predecessors, the 12 and 16-core chips got much closer – a surprisingly small price difference for a noticeable increase in multi-core performance.

While the release date seems right where we expect it to be, pricing could easily be a placeholder. I’ll believe the unusually small $51 gap between the 16 and 12-core models when I see it. In any case, we don’t have to wait much longer to find out So, stay tuned.
