Where to order the new AMD Ryzen 7 processors
AMD has announced just how much consumers will have to pay for the new Ryzen 7 processors, and the 1800X, 1700X, and 1700 CPUs are now available for online order. Depending on your location, you can place an order for the next-gen AMD processors at participating retailers and online stores. We rounded up a few for the U.S. and UK to get you started.
As well as CPU listings, some retailers are also offering bundle packages and even preorders on prebuilt Ryzen-powered systems. More details can be found on AMD's website. It's worth noting that some retailers may start shipping the new CPUs as early today (the official release day is supposed to be March 2), but we noticed stores with other dates listed. So be sure to check availability and ship dates before you buy.

AMD never claimed to surpass the i7 on single-threaded performance, only on heavily multithreaded processes which the 1800X is the best deal today for an 8 core, 16 thread chip
