As of now, in the US, the Ryzen 5 2600 and Ryzen 2600X cost $199 and $229, respectively. Meanwhile, the enthusiast-ready Ryzen 7 2700 and 2700X are set to retail at $299 and $329, respectively. Leaked reviews and rumors that have made their way onto the internet have brought a mixed bag of conclusions regarding these CPUs due to the lack of optimization of first-gen Ryzen boards failing to utilize these new CPUs at their best.

As usual, all four of these CPUs would come with their respective stock coolers as well. With each cooler representing its stack. The AMD Ryzen 5 2600 would come bundled the Wraith Stealth Cooler. Meanwhile, the 2600X would come bundled with the Wraith Spire Cooler excluding the LED keeping the RGB exclusivity with the Ryzen 7 2700. The Ryzen 7 2700X would come bundled with AMD’s Wraith Prism RGB cooler.

According to Amazon, these CPUs should start shipping by the 19th of April 2018 and should also be the official release date for the retail launch as well despite all of the early leaks.
