AMD's Ryzen 5 7600X "Zen 4" Desktop CPU Spotted & Listed Online For An Insane $1500 US Price In Chinese Black Market
The AMD Ryzen 5 7600X "Zen 4" Desktop CPU listed over at the Chinese outlet, Goofish, is from a 3rd party. The chip itself is a very early engineering sample which the seller reports comes with a clock speed of 4.4 GHz whereas the official version of the chip features a base clock speed of 4.7 GHz. So right off the bat, there's a huge difference between this and the retail chip.
The CPU pictured here has the OPN code "100-000000593-20" and was produced in the 17th week of 2022 so that's around early May 2022. Considering that, it is definitely an early sample and it may possibly be a very buggy chip so we ask our readers to refrain from buying such CPU samples. The most recent samples were produced around the end of June 2022 as seen with the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X which also showed up just a few days ago.

The pricing of the AMD Ryzen 5 7600X 6-core CPU is also insane with the seller listing it for 9999 Yuan which converts to over $1000 US. The seller has asked those interested in buying the chip off him to message him for a better price. The user doesn't show any proof that the chip works or not but he did post a video of him rubbing his fingers on the contact pads which is a bit weird and can be seen in the video posted above.
AMD Ryzen 5 7600X 6 Core "Zen 4" Desktop CPU
The AMD Ryzen 5 7600X will be the most entry-level chip within the initial Ryzen 7000 "Zen 4" family. This will be a 6-core and a 12-thread part that features a high 4.7 GHz base clock and a 5.3 GHz single-core boost frequency. The CPU will also run at a 105W TDP (142W PPT) which is much higher than its 65W predecessor though once again, that's the sacrifice you've to pay to achieve the faster clock speeds. The CPU will carry 38 MB of cache that comes from 32 MB of L3 and 6 MB of L2 on the die.
