AMD’s Ryzen 3000 lineup is going to hit retail on the 7th of July, next month, but some retailers (ShopBLT) have already started listing the Zen 2 CPUs up for pre-order:
The twelve-core Ryzen 9 3900X is priced at $521, ($499 at the time of launch). This is the top-end Zen 2 consumer chip (for now anyway) that will go up against the similarly priced Intel’s Core i9-9900K.
The Ryzen 7 3700X is more reasonably priced at $344 ($329 at launch)
The Ryzen 5 3600X comes with six cores, and a boost clock of around 4.2GHz (as shown by recent benchmarks). This part is priced at $249 and is easily a better choice over the $259 Core i5-9600K which was mainly recommended for its gaming performance.
