Tust the Chinese to leak AMD Ryzen 5 7600X Engineering Sample on to the black market (SMH)! … If you want it, you can have it for USD $1,456 (approx.)
Taken from Videocardz … Alibaba’s Goofish is probably the first place where one should look for Intel and AMD engineering samples. We have already seen a few processors sold through this platform, but these are only useful for a small group of people.
An alleged Ryzen 5 7600X sample is now offered for sale. The seller provides basic information on the CPU, such as the base clock of 4.4 GHz, which is 300 MHz lower than the supposed final clock of 4.7 GHz. This 6-core CPU is expected to boost up to 5.3 GHz in a retail form.
Just last week, we had a chance to see a retail version of Ryzen 7 7700X 8-core CPU, which unlike this engineering product offered final specs and probably fewer bugs. This sample carries no SKU name, but the OPN code of 100-000000593-20 is clearly visible. The first retailer listing confirms that this is indeed the 7600X SKU.
The sellers put a price of 9999 RMB which is more than 1456 USD, but this is not the price as the seller requests direct contact before purchasing the item. One probably did not expect a placeholder price for an engineering sample, yet here we are.
