With only a couple of days to go until the official retail availability of the Ryzen 7000-series CPUs and accompanying X670 and X670E motherboards, early pricing of the motherboards are starting to crop up in Europe. Courtesy of @momomo_us we now have pricing from an unknown European retailer for 11 ASUS models, as well as MSI's Godlike board. We also managed to dig up some additional pricing over at Geizhals, which is a European price comparison site, for five ASRock models and one from Gigabyte. Hopefully we're looking at placeholder pricing here, as it's not looking good in terms of value for money. Admittedly, ASUS is known for charging a premium over its competitors, but it's not looking good anywhere right now.

Starting with @momomo_us pricing and MSI for no specific reason, its upcoming MEG X670E Godlike is listed at €2,399 and that doesn't include any kind of liquid cooling accessories. This has to be one of the most expensive consumer motherboards ever, if this is the actual retail pricing it'll sell for. Moving over to ASUS, its Prime X670-P model is listed at €418.53, with the WiFi version jumping to €446.89. This is the first indicator that these are not the actual retail prices, as WiFi versions of motherboards tend to have a $/€/£10-20 premium over non-WiFi models. We're not going to go over every individual board price here, simply look at the attached pictures, but based on these early prices, ASUS has two models for well over €1,000, the ROG Crosshair X670E Hero and the ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme, with the latter being listed at €1,486.95.
 
Based on the pricing on Geizhals, ASRock is also going for the €1,000 plus price bracket, with both of its X670E Taichi models fitting square into this price bracket. The regular Taichi is listed at €1,005.90 with the Carrara limited edition model coming in at €1,055.10. This is from an Austrian reseller called Singer Komputer. The other ASRock models aren't as insanely expensive, but still at least €200 more than they ought to be. Finally we have the Gigabyte X670E Aorus Master which is listed at a different Austrian retailer for €617.31, which is around €100-150 more than it should be retailing for, based on the pricing TPU was given at Computex, even taking inflation into account. Make what you want of this, but if these are an indication of actual retail prices, then it's unlikely anyone will be upgrading their PCs this time around.
 
Prices for the upper level boards are indeed high, but we'll have to see if the prices are correct on the release date.

    Good god! I guess it’s a good thing after all that I’m looking to do a low-mid range AM4 pc then. Like is the new trend now for everyone in the hardware sector to try so hard to kill off pc gaming and enthusiast pcs completely?

    Labor worldwide as well as semiconductor parts have gone up. You should be able to find a non X670E (X670) motherboard for far less cost. Or wait until October when the B series chipset motherboards should launch.

    That is too expensive. In my opinion the RTX 4090 is also too expensive.

    The abusive pricing is why I’ll stick to my PS5 and Switch for general gaming and plan on building a low-mid range AM4 pc for MMOs not available on console and older\moddable games.
