AMD appears to be keeping their Zen 3 launch prices with their Zen 4 product launch
Thanks to WccfTech the launch day prices for AMD's Ryzen 7000 series Zen 4 processors have leaked, and the good news for PC builders is that AMD appears to be launching their next-generation Zen 4 CPUs with the same MSRP prices as their current-generation Zen 3 counterparts.
On the high-end, AMD's Ryzen 9 7950X is expected to launch with a $799 USD MSRP, which is the same as the launch pricing for their Ryzen 9 5950X. The same applies to AMD's Ryzen 9 7900X, which is reportedly launching for $549, which is the same as the Ryzen 9 5900X's launch day MSRP.
Things change a little with the Ryzen 7 7700X, which is said to launch with an MSRP of $449, which is the same as the launch day pricing of AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X. It sounds like AMD is not launching a Ryzen 7 7800X this year, making the Ryzen 7 5800X's current-gen counterpart.
On the lower end, AMD's 6-core Ryzen 5 7600X is reportedly launching for $299, which is the same as the MSRP of AMD's 8-core Ryzen 7 5700X.
What does Zen 4 offer PC users over Zen 3?
AMD's new Zen 4 architecture is the newest and most performant core design to date, using 5nm TSMC lithography and new core enhancements to deliver users more per-core performance than ever before.
With Zen 4, AMD has already confirmed that their Zen 4 processors should clock a lot higher than their Zen 3 counterparts, delivering notable gains in single-threaded and multi-threaded processor performance. Add on new features like AVX-512, AMD's expanded L2 caches, and other architectural enhancements, and Zen 4 should deliver PC users a significant performance uplift over Zen 3 across a variety of CPU workloads.
Outside of AMD's Zen 4 CPU cores, Ryzen 7000 series processors will support PCIe 5.0 connectivity and DDR5 memory. This allows AMD's latest processors to take advantage of faster PCIe devices and utilise the fastest DRAM available.

If AMD's leaked Ryzen 7000 series CPU prices are correct, AMD will not be increasing their CPU prices with Zen 4. While AMD's Ryzen 5000 series CPUs are sold below their original MSRP prices today, the company's move to Zen 4 will simply be boosting CPU prices back to their original MSRPs. This isn't a price hike, it is AMD reverting to the norm.
