AMD’s fastest Ryzen 7000 CPUs could have a fancy box, but may get pricier

AMD’s packaging for its fastest Ryzen 7000 processors has purportedly been leaked, and it looks very smart indeed – plus there’s some news on pricing, although that suggests these top-end models might be costlier than existing Ryzen 5000 heavyweights.

The picture of the box for next-gen Ryzen 9 CPUs was aired by VideoCardz (opens in new tab), with the tech site observing that it is supposedly taken from an internal presentation conducted by AMD. Add your own skepticism at this point, and indeed VideoCardz notes it hasn’t been able to confirm with other sources whether the pic is genuine, so bear that in mind – though the image is a good fake if it isn’t the real thing.

Also remember that this is for the Ryzen 9 models, the most premium chips for Ryzen 7000 (Zen 4), and the boxes for lesser spec CPUs will likely look different (often some considerable effort is made with the packaging for expensive silicon, to make buyers feel they’re getting something special – just look at Intel’s mock gold wafer for the Alder Lake flagship).

Of further interest here is that the source of the leaked image provides gossip on the potential pricing of Zen 4 processors, although this should be treated with extra helpings of caution. The theory is that the Ryzen 7 7700X will launch at the same recommended price as the Ryzen 7 5700X, and that on the whole, AMD will look to maintain price tags at the same level as Ryzen 5000, with some exceptions.
