Leaks and spills concerning the upcoming AMD Ryzen 2000 series CPUs are coming thick and fast right now. Last week we witnessed the AMD Ryzen 2000 Series roadmap and specs leak, and pondered over a set of interesting Korea-sourced benchmarks from what was likely to be a Ryzen 7 2700X processor. This week we saw some more benchmarks emerge courtesy of Geekbench; this time you could check over Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X processor specs and scores.

Today we are covering more of a spill than a leak, as eager online retailers have accidentally published product pages sharing details, specs and possible pricing for upcoming new AMD 2000 Series chips. VideoCardz has done the best job I have seen of gathering together multiple retail spills, and it includes screenshots of listings from Amazon, TigerDirect, Prinfor, and DirectDial.

Checking over all the screenshots we can see that pricing is roughly in line with the leaked presentation slides we first saw a week ago. For convenience I have repeated the 'Ryzen Desktop Processor Positioning' slide directly above. In a couple of European listings you will see that the AMD Ryzen 7 2600X is priced at approx €250 - AMD's MSRP is expected to be US249 with a Wraith Spire thrown in. There's only one example of a Ryzen 7 2700X for sale in this VideoCardz published retail listings batch and that is from TigerDirect, with a price of $422.99 - a significant premium on the suggested $369.

As for availability, the Amazon.de listing indicates a shipping date of 19th April for its AMD Ryzen 5 2600X. VideoCardz reckons this makes sense as the date aligns with motherboard availability information.

I've looked to see if any of the listings are still live at the time of writing and found the Ryzen 5 2600X listed at $274.99 and as 'temporarily out of stock' at TigerDirect. Also there's a Ryzen 7 2700X listed on DirectDial at CAD$511, and at Prinfor (Portugal) for €384.08 including tax.

Unfortunately it looks like AMD can't control their OEM's (or retailers?) again. Sales will suffer if Intel's 8700k is selling for $339 and AMD's is going for $420+. That's nearly a $100. AMD needs to start threatening Tiger Direct etc (or the company selling to Tiger direct, Synnex, Ingram Micro, ASI etc), for amping up prices. If you don't charge AT or BELOW MSRP you won't get Zen2 chips for 6 months to a year. :) Problem solved. Somebody else will be more than happy to charge appropriately and TAKE that money if you refuse to follow the rules and we ban your company from buying our product :) Would you like to have your customers only be able to purchase Intel when AMD has a pretty good alternative that many actually want? Tell that to your shareholders. “well, we were trying to rip people off above MSRP, kind of like what happens at xbox launches etc on ebay, but it backfired and AMD is no longer selling us their cpus, we're sorry shareholders” …Stock price plummet on Company X in 3…2…1…ROFL.

Literally two days ago you were upset that AMD were selling cheap chips, now you're upset that AMD is concentrating on the high margin? A direct quote:

They should avoid PRICE WARS at all costs
And now you're demanding a price war?

The highest pricing in those leaks is equivalent to US$370, which is the leaked MSRP for the 2700X, and is the same MSRP as an i7 8700k. At current exchange rates, taking VAT into account, a $370 MSRP should translate to ~ £320 at retail in the UK, which is … less than you can buy an i7 8700k for today (scan/ebuyer).

Prices in dollars don't include sales tax which, when taken into account, usually means $370 equates to ~£370.
The Ryzen 5 2600 looks good at $199. Retailers better sell through the 1600 quickly.

Edit:

Just noticed it's got a Wraith Stealth cooler. It looks like a 6 core/12 thread on 12nm doesn't need the Spire cooler.
