    Is that for real!? In Portugal, the 5600x is currently being sold at at 322€ and i´ve already seen it cheaper. And for 460€ you can get the 5800x...

    Those prices are criminal...

    Thanks, Jura

    Thanks, Jura

    Alza is Europe wide as there was large enough opening to expand into. CZC is smaller, but in past it was most competitive in PC only component sale. T.S. Bohemia is very old and it is large too. They ate few smaller competitors which had better price and services. So they kind of averaged into reasonable company.
    Most of my parts are either from Alza or from CZC, but sometimes I get them from T.S. Bohemia.

    Due to virus, Alza did expand automated pickup places in many cities. So, they have more power (reach) than others now.
    But all three are trustworthy. If they ship to your place, and you like price (with added delivery cost), you should not be afraid.

    Alza is like young shark, always innovating. CZC is slowly steering, but stable ship. And T.S. Bohemia is kind of like brontosaurus.

    CZC I think I have used too previously when I was living in Czech Republic and TS Bohemia I heard about this company first time today, I have not been in Czech Republic for something like 12 or 15 years now hahaha and so many things has changed since then, Alza has been my favourite that time in Czech Republic and CZC only used limited time

    I bought several parts from Alza, sometimes it is cheaper there than in UK shops, bought there few parts for friend and several customer builds

    Thanks, Jura

    Nothing in Russia. 0 (zero) shipment. All of Ryzen 5000 series do not even exist on DNS and Citilink sites. Therefore they are not out of stock, they never been even added to stock. Also nothing in Regard, Oldi and OGO.

    The kind of stupidity to believe those are legit bids is why scalpers exist.

    I find hard to believe those as legit bids... wouldn't make sense as the 5600x can be bought on Ebay for 450-500$ , still very greedy though, please don't feed the scalpers.

    5600x has been readily available here in Finland since launch. Tho the higher end models are gone.

    Tech will always get more expensive, simply because demand is ever increasing based on population numbers, and tech use and uptake is greatest now than ever before.

    Right or wrong, I bought a 3950x at release because of the UK leaving Europe, so come next year I worried that getting components will be more difficult and/or increased cost to what I know currently. No regrets, it is a great cpu, but honestly I expected the zen 3's to be delayed more than they have been considering 2020 in general.

    The fact that AMD has enough to meet some individual user requests + pc builders + more on way soon, and is keeping CDNA and Milan announcement and release dates on track is pretty good I must say, though still not ideal.

    Avoid biggest shops and you will get it, order from different country if you are in Europe. They are still avaliable, if You look good enough

    So you want AMD to not only randomly guess the demand in launch day for each processor model globally, but to also somehow FORCE EACH AND EVERY SHOP TO BUY AND STOCKPILE that amount of CPUs (that could be in the thousands in a lot of cases) so that a bunch of entitled crybabies don't act outraged online, because they will get it 2 weeks or a month later?
    Got it.

    What would be nice to know is a ballpark figure of how much stock is available at release, so folk know a little bit what to expect ahead of time.
    They can say demand is high, but with out knowing the number of units to sell, hard to judge.

    NV/AMD/Intel etc...

    What I don't get is that we can't PREORDER before release day!???

    Consoles allowed preorders, and this allows Sony and Microsoft to know how many to make, but also how to distribute their initial stock. Why can't Nvidia, AMD, or Intel allow people to preorder at least a month before release day (2 months would probably be better).

    They could then gauge how many to make and how to ship them around the world. Makes perfect sense for hardware like this.

    I ordered a 5900X @ megekko in the Netherlands, position 735.

    I'm not in a real hurry to get one, since there's no (beta)BIOS for my X470 Asus yet, but I hope it's here before Corona is history...

    Apparently there were a 1000 Ryzen 5000 units here in the Benelux region (Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg) at launch: 650x 5600, 150x both 5800 and 5900, and only 50x 5950. However there were about 1400 orders placed for the 5900x...
