Russia has become one of the first countries to receive a heavy shipment of the Ryzen 5000 CPUs, with retailers selling the chips fairly close to the AMD recommended MSRP. In the below table, you can see the global price of the Zen 3 parts on the left (US$), and the AMD recommended prices on the left and center (BOX and tray).
Let’s have a look at how the pricing at prominent retailers is like:
The Ryzen 5 5600X is going for 33,400 Rubles, 6K more than the BOX price while the eight-core Ryzen 7 5800X is priced at 45.2K Rubles, roughly 4-5K more than the SEP.
Lastly, the top-end Ryzen 9 5950X packing 16 cores is selling for 78.7K Rubles, some 4K more than the recommended pricing. Overall, we’re seeing a markup of 4-6K Rubles which isn’t all that bad. This is the best pricing for the Ryzen 5000 CPUs we’ve seen in any country. Hopefully, in a month or so, the prices should return to normal in other regions as well.
