With the introduction of the latest generation of the Zen-based Ryzen CPUs, AMD has made a point to push its latest generation products to market as cheaply as possible.
The new CPUs feature a new process design and have more cores than the previous generation of CPUs, with each core being clocked at around 1.3GHz.
The process also features 16MB of L2 cache and is designed to allow the CPU to run on a chip that is up to 25% smaller than the one on the previous-generation Zen CPU.
The result is that the new processors are more power efficient than the existing Zen CPU, and they also offer more cores and a higher clock speed.
But they’re not cheap.
AMD says that the CPUs have an MSRP of $549 for the base-level Ryzen 5 1600X and $599 for the 4790.
The base-end Ryzen 5 1800X is $399, while the 4590 and 4690 CPUs have MSRs of $499 and $549, respectively.
To get the latest chips to market, AMD is also introducing a number of new graphics cards.
The AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 is priced at $249 and the Radeon RX 470 is $199.
The Radeon RX 570 is $229.
The Ryzen 5 1500X is priced around $199 and the Ryzen 5 1400X is around $159.
There are also a number to consider for the high-end RX Vega 56.
The RX Vega 57 is $169, the RX Vega 58 is $159, and the RX 580 is $139.
The R9 Fury X is priced between $199-199, the R9 390X is at $229, and both the Radeon R9 380 and the R7 370 are priced at around $179.
These prices may not be competitive with AMD’s other high-performance products, but it does make for a good value proposition for those who want to buy an RX Vega.
