Posted September 27: Get AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors in Canada

Leap into a new generation at Best Buy, where all-new AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors are now available in Canada.

Originally released on September 27, the 7000 Series is AMD's latest-generation of desktop processors built on their Zen 4 architecture, with improvements including better gaming performance and support for bleeding-edge technology like DDR5 memory.

NOTE: all AMD Ryzen 7000 Series processors use a new AM5 CPU socket and DDR5 memory, both of which are not backwards compatible with previous-generation AM4 motherboards or DDR4 memory.

For reference, Best Buy's pricing is at MSRP and slightly less than other retailers like Canada Computers and Newegg.ca, where list prices are up to $20.00 higher.

AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors are available online and Best Buy offers free shipping with orders over $35.00 (excluding oversized items) and free in-store/curbside pick-up with no minimum.

    • AMD admitted they have restrained GPU and CPU shipments to keep prices high.

      https://www.techspot.com/news/97462-amd ... r-cpu.html
      I didn't see that apply to CPUS. Never seen AMD CPUS fail to meet demand last year. Admittedly demand for 7000 series CPUS might've been low but they were always available, unlike the situation with 79xx GPUS. The markets were entirely different so I wouldn't think AMD would employ the same strategy for the CPU market (ie no excess old stock to clear, no history of inflated pricing). Holding the 7800X3D back is likely more to do with encouraging the purchasing of higher end X3Ds (to possibly raise Q1 metrics, sure).

      April 6th release for the 7800X3D, that's some bs. Clearly the best performance/price if AMD is holding it back.

      Yes, unless you need the extra cores for content creation the 7800X3D will be the one to get for gaming, but hopefully they get price cuts sooner rather than later like the original Zen 4 chips.

    • Still intel chips are more power hungry and less efficient despite more dense… maybe doesnt matter for desktop, but for laptop on the other hand…
      Yes, they are at a disadvantage, but it's not because of "7nm is smaller than 10nm". Their process, whether it's called "10nm" or "Avengers" is inferior to TSMC's process, whether it's called "7nm" or "Batman". The numbers in the names mean nothing.

    • That's not how it works. Modern process nodes are all over the place with naming. Whether something is called "7nm" or "5nm" is all marketing. 5nm is better than 7nm, but not because it's 2nm better in terms of some physical measurement in transistor dimensions. Similarly, just because Intel's process is marketed as "10nm" doesn't make it inferior to TSMC's process that's marketed as "7nm". You have to look beyond the name and actually focus on the transistor density and switching performance.

      Intel 10nm density is on the order of 10% worse than TSMC 7nm, while it's about 100% better than TSMC 10nm. It's closer to TSMC 7nm in density and performance, hence why they renamed it to "Intel 7".

      In all honesty, as someone who works in this industry, this stuff is all BS and meaningless to customers. All customers should care about are the product performance and efficiency regardless of what process node the product is manufactured in. This stuff is interesting for semiconductor companies who are designing this stuff and competing against each other, but to the common consumer who don't understand the nuances behind it? It's meaningless.

    • Reviews and benchmarks are out for the recently released non-X CPUs. They have a better value and more suitable for smaller form factor PCs. Still an issue with AM5 motherboards being more expensive than Intel motherboards. DRR5 prices are coming down, but still more expensive than good low latency DDR4 kits.


      AMD's New $230 Ryzen 5 7600 CPU | Review & Benchmarks (ft. PBO) from Gamers Nexus
      AMD's new Ryzen 5 CPU is a 7600 non-X, which is cheaper than the 7600X, lower power, and basically has Eco Mode pre-applied. It gets most the performance of the 7600X, but for a lower cost. The closest competition is AMD's own 7600X, then Intel's 12600K, and on the higher side, the 13600K (but that's closer to the R7 7700 in price). We have two separate reviews coming up for the R7 7700 and R9 7900. Testing includes comparisons with PBO (Precision Boost Overdrive) on the 7600, making it similar to the 7600X.

    • so even when both platform using the same ddr5 ram, intel still have the pricing edge?
      Yes, DDR5 is a wash between the 2 and then you can just use a cheaper DDR5 motherboard for intel, the AMD ones are still pretty pricey.

      Edit - and the new 13400F cpu looks likely to compete with the 7600X.

      Intel 4 actually which will also compare to TSMC 4/5nm, according to this Intel 7 is roughly equivalent to TSMC 7nm.

      https://www.pcgamer.com/chipmaking-proc ... lmc-paper/

      Intel reports a density of 100.76MTr/mm2 (mega-transistor per squared millimetre) for its 10nm process, while TSMC's 7nm process is said to land a little behind at 91.2MTr/mm2 (via Wikichip).

    • For sure will be. 7800x3d is rumoured to drop at 450USD. I'm guessing that'll translate to ~650CAD. Going by their charts last night, it's definitely in the area of diminishing returns over the 5800x3d, which the 7600x trades blows with as well.

For strictly gaming the price difference between either Intel or AMD on DDR5 doesn't seem that great, especially if you want a higher quality board.

      At the high end, Intel tends to outperform AMD for the same price, and cheaper motherboards and DDR4 support bring down the cost of buying into Intel's platform for budget PC buyers. These new Ryzen CPUs should improve AMD's competitiveness, but until motherboard and memory prices come down a bit more, they won't be able to change that dynamic by themselves.
