Retailers have put the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F on the shelves

Recent reports indicate that AMD plans to modify the sales strategy for the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F, launching boxed retail versions globally rather than limiting them to the OEM market, though the specific timeline remains unclear. The suffix ‘F’ denotes that these processors are derived from the Ryzen 8000G series, with the integrated graphics removed, and are based on the Hawk Point chipset.

Recently, online enthusiasts have discovered that retailers have already listed the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F, providing preliminary prices, which are not necessarily accurate:

  • Ryzen 7 8700F APU (100-100001590BOX) (PC-Canada) – CAD 752.99
  • Ryzen 5 8400F APU (100-100001591BOX) (PC-Canada) – CAD 481.99
  • Ryzen 7 8700F APU (100-100001590BOX) (Funtech SL) – EUR 309.90
  • Ryzen 5 8400F APU (100-100001591BOX) (Funtech SL) – EUR 199.90

With the arrival of these new processors, AMD has expanded its AM5 platform lineup to include 15 consumer-grade products. However, as of now, AMD has yet to confirm the specific pricing and release dates for the boxed retail versions of the Ryzen 7 8700F and Ryzen 5 8400F. The Ryzen 7 8700F, originally the Ryzen 7 8700G without integrated graphics, maintains its 8-core 16-thread configuration with 8MB of L2 cache and 16MB of L3 cache. The core frequency has been adjusted from 4.2~5.1GHz to 4.1~5.0GHz, still including an NPU, supporting Ryzen AI. The Ryzen 5 8400F evolved from the Ryzen 5 8600G to a 6-core 12-thread structure, with 6MB of L2 cache and 16MB of L3 cache, and a reduced core frequency of 4.2~4.7GHz, compared to 4.3~5.0GHz for the Ryzen 5 8600G, while also removing the NPU.
