B&H listed the four Ryzen 9000 series CPUs: 9950X, 9900X, 9700X, and 9600X. Obviously this is just a placeholder, but you can sign up to be notified when these CPUs become available.

In my experience with newly released PC hardware, it's best not to rely on email notifications as they tend to arrive late. It is best to visit and check the page regularly. Most of the time, hot products like GPUs and CPUs tend to sell out on the same day or almost instantly.

According to B&H's page, “Pre-order begins at 9:00 a.m. ET, Wednesday, July 31.” This gives us a hint that we will probably see these CPUs online by the end of July. Newegg usually lists newly released hardware before other online retailers as they also accept pre-orders. However, as of today, Newegg has not yet included these new Ryzen 9000 desktop CPUs.

As mentioned, Bermor Techzone also listed these new Ryzen 900 desktop CPUs. The page for all CPUs is still up to this day. Not only did they list the CPUs, but they also listed all the features and specifications of each CPU, including prices.

According to the BTZ page, the flagship Ryzen 9 9950X retails for Php 38,000, which is roughly equivalent to $655 when converted to USD. Meanwhile, the Ryzen 9 990X costs around ~$600, the 9700X costs around ~$400, and the 9600X costs around $320 USD.

If the prices are right, the Ryzen 9000 desktop CPUs may be available at the same price as their predecessors. Of course, these prices could simply be headline prices, and the actual retail price could be higher or lower.
