Before we share the prices, it is worth noting that AMD revealed the prices of all four processors without GST. So you need to factor in the 18 percent taxes that you will pay while purchasing these chips. Looking at the announcement, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is priced at Rs 22,990. We get Ryzen 7 5800X at Rs 34,490, Ryzen 9 5900X at Rs 41,990 and Ryzen 9 5950X at Rs 60,990. Factoring in the taxes, you are likely to pay Rs 27,128 for the 5600X, and Rs 40,698 for 5800X. Ryzen 9 5900X will cost Rs 49,548 and 5950X will cost Rs 71,968.

It is likely that some sellers may increase the pricing for the chips depending on the demand. However, it is best to look for deals close to the prices mentioned above. AMD also confirmed that its' AMD 500 series motherboards are ready to run the latest Ryzen 5000 series desktop chips. Though the customers do need to install the latest BIOS update before putting the chip in. While installing the update, you can double-check the compatibility of the update by ensuring that the changelog confirms the AGESA 1.1.0.0 patch.

Looking at the AMD website, it looks like the company has still not updated the Middle East and Africa section. However, we did see reports of online sellers like Prime ABGB, PC Shop, and more selling the processor. In addition, the stocks seem to be selling out as soon as they are released. So, if you are planning to buy one, it will days (if not weeks) until you get one.
