Prices for the new Ryzen processors (8 core variations) may have been leaked, there might be a further markup from retailers on top however.

Doesn't look like they're undercutting intel price by that much at all.

Will depend on performance & overclocking, don't forget there will be 6 cores and 4 cores as well for a lower price.

Assuming prices are correct however.

The AMD chip is supposed to be 90-100% as good but priced at $490USD. that's H U G E L Y undercutting them!
The Ryzen 8C/16T models are aiming to outright kill off Intel's HEDT platform. Intel doesn't sell a lot of those processors, but they make good margin on whatever they do sell.

There will be cheaper 6C/12T and 4C/8T Ryzen models to compete with the regular Core i5/i7 products. Core i5, in particular, is in trouble because it needs to compete against the 4C/8T Ryzen, which will probably crush it in multithread performance while being more power efficient.

Wooo, man I hope those prices are accurate. If so, I can't wait for the 4 core variations!

Can't tell if being sarcastic. May want to just get an SSD for that.

Faster CPU helps tremendously with web browsing. A lot of modern websites are actually quite CPU intensive. Try browsing Groupon with a slow CPU. Even Google Maps is sluggish if you have a lackluster CPU.

The notion that web browsing is a "basic" task is about as antiquated a concept as RAM overclocking.

haha, no :(

Canadian electronic market is disproportionate so it will be $645 CAD + import tax, and then profit margin on the Canadian side.
Friends at Canada Computers and NCIX will always tell you they barely make a profit on cpu and gpu parts. Hence why a $200 480 started at launch $320+ in Canada when a direct conversion was $262.83 CAD currently.

So $700-$750 might be the high end, but still worth the money compared to intel

Thankfully I live @ the border, so any gouging we do over here doesn't really impact me. There's no duties on computer parts, as far as I've been told. So, when the 4 core parts show up, they'll be plenty fast enough for anything I could imagine plausibly doing, and I should be able to scoop them in the states. As well, they like doing bundles over there at microcenter, so it should be crazy cheap compared to Intel, even if they initially gouge.

If it's similar price to a i7 kaby lake and 90% of the performance.. .not much undercutting with price there. Never really been about core numbers with AMD performance.. its the overall performance that counts. Don't get me wrong I want AMD to do well, more choices is always better.

But it's an octo-core where as all Intel consumer processors are quad-cores; you have to move up to LGA-2011 to get hex+ cores.

Don't matter too much, AMD has 8 core processors right now and its $300.... it's the performance relative to their intel counterpart. They are positioning their top of the line Ryzen vs the i7 kaby lake /skylake line? Don't think they're going for the 2011 broadwell line . If they're doing $650CDN for their top of the line Ryzen thats suppose to go against a i7 kaby lake then they better have at least equal or better performance since it doesn't really beat it by price at all since i7 kaby is less than $500 CDN.... If they're going for broadwell i7 performance at $650 then we got something to talk about for sure.

I am excited to see the performance numbers once the real reviews starts rolling in after launch.

The new amd cpu improved single threaded performance over the previous generations. In the demo, it performs 10% faster than the i7 8 core processor. Granted, we will need to wait for the actual reviews, but if it is 10% faster at the demo it actually has a lot of wiggle room to perform at around the same levels.

If that is true, that is significantly undercutting (selling at 50% of the price) for something that performs at pretty much the same speed. However, the high-end version is probably not a product for your average consumers at home though.

Oh i agree, it'll be good if AMD can pull it off. Good that they say it's all going to be the AM4 socket for their whole line unlike intel where they make different sockets between their top i7 lines.

AMDs reputation in my opinion (for myself when it comes to purchasing) went to crap a long time ago. I will likely never buy an AMD setup ever again.

That is to say unless AMD really is going to perform good now because for a very long time it hasn't.
