Company news is almost impossible to buy. And if possible, at a very high price.
AMD, unfortunately, has once again formed a situation with a shortage of products. It has already happened more than once that it was difficult to buy a new successful product for the first time, and there was no talk of recommended prices at all.
A similar fate touched the top-end Ryzen processors of the new generation. Ryzen 9 3950X entered the market only a few days ago, so it’s hardly worth it to be surprised that it is almost impossible to buy. But the 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X has been on sale for many months, but is still in short supply.
According to a source, not a single major retail store in the United States currently has Ryzen 9 3950X processors, and Ryzen 9 3900X is very rare and often at an extremely high price up to $ 1,000. Recall that its recommended price is $ 500.
The Ryzen Threadripper 3960X and Ryzen Threadripper 3970X are expected to be in the same position. As we reported yesterday, in Japan, these CPUs, along with the Ryzen 9 3950X, will be selling coupons from tomorrow.
As for Russian retail, for example, in a pair of large chains Ryzen 9 3900X is sold for 46-49 thousand rubles, that is, more than 700 dollars.
