How does AMD usually price Ryzen in the UK?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I've seen that the Ryzen 7 3800X is going to be priced at $399 but I cannot find any £ prices anywhere. What was it like with the previous generation? Is it just a pure conversion from $ to £ or will we end up paying £399?

No historic guidelines as I never paid that much attention either... I'd start at $1=£1 and hope it comes in a bit lower than that.

America doesn't have taxes included in the product prices, so keep that in mind too.

But on the current $ to £ conversion ratio, 399£ (with tax included) seems plausible as a price.

Someone asked a little bit ago basically the same thing, but with euros instead of GBP, after which I made a little comparison I will now re-use, but with GBP added:

Quote

Just some comparisons of previous Ryzen CPU's with their product name, USD launch price and the Euro (Dutch) launch prices I found on Tweakers.net (and now GBP added via PCPartPicker and Camelcamelcamel (Amazon price tracker)):

 

1800X: 499 USD, 560 euros, 440 GBP, 539 GBP

1700: 329 USD, 360 euros, 300 GBP, 320 GBP

1600: 219 USD, 240 euros, 200 GBP, 220 GBP

 

2700x: 329 USD, 330 euros, 280 GBP, 320 GBP

2600X: 229 USD, 240 euros, 200 GBP, 220 GBP

 

TR:

2920X: 649 USD, 660 euros, 600 GBP, 600 GBP

1900X: 549 USD, 550 euros, 520 GBP, 520 GBP.

Looking a bit at this list, it seems like the Britishing pricing on Amazon is a bit higher than the average on PCPartPicker (I didn't actually average the price exactly, just kind of estimated that) and the Britishing prices seems to be near or below the US MSRP.

 

As other users above me said, the US pricing doesn't include sales tax, which - as I asked another user in the thread linked above - varies by state. It apparently is between 4% and 10%.

 

So a 399 USD chip I expect you will pay roughly 399 GBP too. Could be a little lower or higher, but likely lower at the 'cheapest retailer available'.

To expand on it a bit, US prices exclude tax. That makes it easier. Straight conversion at current exchange rates ($1.26) are closely offset by UK VAT at 20%. So just on those two factors alone, the UK numeric street pricing should be slightly below US. e.g. US$100 without tax = £95 with tax. They'll probably round up and keep numbers round.

God I forgot about the US not including taxes. I'm looking at a 2700x right now for £289 with Divison 2 and World War Z. I don't think I'll be able to afford £400 for 3rd gen plus I need a new motherboard.

Just import from Germany, Netherlands or Scandinavia, it will be cheaper than buying in the UK, especially if you order from Germany.  

Quite a few websites from Germany have an English option also. 

 

How things will be after Brexit, no one knows.

Your 7700k is faster in games than the 2700x.

It's also garbage in open world games. AC: Origins 100% CPU usage with stuttering same with Battlefield V. You can't run those CPU demanding games on an 4C 8T.

Well you could get the r5 3600(x), still better than your current cpu. It should be 199/249.
