Originally spotted by Videocardz.com, a Belgian retailer/e-tailer has listed a couple of AMD Ryzen SKUs, with prices listed at €319 ex. VAT for the Ryzen 7 1700 SKU, €409 ex. VAT for the Ryzen 7 1700X and €519 ex. VAT for the flagship Ryzen 7 1800X. With a 21 percent VAT in Belgium, these prices add up to €386, €495 and €628, respectively.

|Ryzen 7 1700 3.7GHZ 8 CORE 65W (YD1700BBM88AE)||€319||€386|

Strangely, the listing only includes 8-core SKUs, each with two different SKUs, suggesting that these will be available in boxed (with cooler) and tray options. The same retailer also suggests that these SKUs should become available on February 28th, which lines up with AMD's Capsaicin event at the GDC 2017 show.
According to this listing and some earlier rumors, it appears that AMD will first launch its 8-core SKUs while 6-core and 4-core SKUs, possibly dubbed Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3, could be coming at a later date.
Earlier this week, a leak coming from a retailer in Thailand also revealed an alleged box image of upcoming Ryzen CPUs. Another rumor, coming from Digiworthy.com site, claims that AMD is already sending out review samples and has given a green light for reviews to go live on February 28th as well.
Things are heating up with AMD Ryzen and hopefully, the new CPU lineup will launch with a bang, living up to the hype.
