AMD has removed part of the first generation of Ryzen CPUs from its price list. The models are presumably no longer delivered and may soon go out of business, if the current stocks at shops are empty.
AMD released the second generation of its Ryzen CPUs on Thursday; there were four models for the time being: the Ryzen 7 2700X, 2700 and the Ryzen 5 2600X and 2600 . The new CPUs are compatible with the AM4 motherboards with X370 chipset that appeared simultaneously with the first generation of Ryzen CPUs
Why AMD still offers part of the first-generation Ryzen CPUs and another part has already been omitted , is not clear. It is also noticeable that AMD does not yet mention its new efficient GE versions of the Ryzen 2000 apu’s in the price list.
The cpu’s that AMD has taken from its price list are still available at webshops, but whoever buys a new system or upgrades a processor, has little to do to go for the newer and faster cpu’s of the second generation. The former top model, the Ryzen 7 1800X, for example, costs just under 300 euros, while the Ryzen 7 2700X is offered for less than 320.
