The retailer listed several SKUs of the Ryzen 9000 series, and the listing appeared on Slovenian website Funtech. It should be noted that these prices are not the official suggested retail prices for AMD’s upcoming lineup of processors, but should instead be considered an approximation. According to the listings, the Zen 5-based Ryzen 9 9950X was listed for €659.90 ($708 USD), but it is “normal price” is €824.88 ($886).

Notably, the Red Team’s flagship CPU, the 9950X, appears to be priced around its Zen 4 counterpart, the 7950X3D, which cost $699. The Ryzen 9 9900X cost €499.90 ($537), which is very low compared to its Zen 4 counterpart: the Ryzen 7 7900X costs €669 ($716.16). Another cheaper 9000 series processor is the €399.90 ($429) Ryzen 7 9700X, which at launch is cheaper than the €479 ($512) Ryzen 7 7700X.

Last in the pile of CPUs is the Ryzen 5 9600X, which was listed for €309.90 ($332), compared to the Ryzen 5 7600X, which launched for a price of $384. As previously mentioned, AMD has not officially announced pricing for its 9000-series processors, so these numbers shouldn’t be taken as prices written in stone.
