Looks like midnight was a bust on the East and West coast. Never went in stock on Newegg or Amazon.

this is absolute complete and utter nonsense vaporware / paper launch. just seems like a PR / publicity stunt by AMD. why'd they waste all of our time with this? there's literally some people camping at Micro Center for disappointment that AMD lied about the launch

Looks like AMD pulled another fast one one on us i'm seeing listings now saying "Nda until 26 November 2019".

Complete nonsense.

Complete nonsense.
Probably because Intel jerked around on their 'new' 980 and moved it 12 hours earlier so AMD moved it back to make some PR room. Not that it's nice for those waiting on their CPUs but business and marketing are very important to get right.

I spoke to Scan.co.uk who received 4, overclockers.co.uk received 6. They're now showing pre-sales with an estimated delivery of 30th Jan

But the good news, my AM4 mounting kit arrived 30 minutes ago.

edit: Amazon uk never displayed pricing for the 3950x from AMD or other sellers.

Well, I got a notice from Amazon, it was in stock, hit add to cart, and then they told me I couldn't add it. Oh well, I tried.

For me, I'd planned on building a 3950X (and still will) but I couldn't purchase last night due to my bank cancelling my credit card for "suspicious activity" on Saturday afternoon.

Totally pissed about that (not the cancellation...it was a valid cancellation) it's the timing that sucked salty donkey balls.

There's no option for that so I couldn't vote.

I received this email directly from AMD less than an hour ago, tried the "Get Yours" button, but... they're out of stock.

Yes im gunning for the 32 core. Gonna be my 4 to 5 year build this time and NO More till that time frame is up.
1-2gens from now 3970x will be towards the bottom of some charts and you'll want whatever is at the top.

Sucks for the 2990wx owners, hope they pumped maximum invoice velocity thru their rigs.

Unfortunately they won't do holds on items like that, in store only. If you got someone to hold it they only did it cuz they don't know the policy.
They will and they did. 3950x wasn't "in store only" listing and I was able reserve one for me.

When the 3900x came out, MC did holds at store. Then they didn't. I'm guessing it's the same here with the 3950x too. No big surprise really, I'm sure some people who did holds (holds are free - no charge), flaked out and never showed. Which means some person actually in store looking for it, couldn't buy it.

Cash in hand always wins now.

Both AMD and Intel lied to us. You can't get a 10980XE nor a 3950x or a TR. You simply can not buy one anywhere. They already delayed now we must wait how long ?

It was store dependent. The MC in Parkville, MD held one for me until 8 PM yesterday. Had to drive 160 miles round trip to get it, but totally worth it.

Glad I didn't pick the MC at St. David's in PA, or they would have canceled my order.

I tried to get one at mc in Detroit (6 hour round trip drive for me) they told me they did not have any in stock and it never showed up on their webpage.. not sure if they actually had any in stock or not.

I was at westmont, IL and I was told by employees they had _2_ in back but couldn't sell them until Monday. They told me to be at the door at 10am, but I didn't bother....

4770k lives on for now.

newegg,ca had them in stock for awhile, I called them and chatted with them trying to get them to sell me one and ship to the US (they ship from the us anyway) but they told me I had to have a credit card with canadian billing address in order to do that.
