You must send all that back. You aren't allowed to have evidence that it was not a paper launch if you're building AMD. It's the law.I wouldn't call it paper, but I'm not sure how its not. I was lucky af to find this at microcenter. I think where I live in the Atlanta GA USA region, it might be one of the high yield markets for Microcenter hence why we had the chips down here. Maybe the store got preference from AMD or MC headquarters.
The problem with Europe is that AMD is an American company so obviously it would seem that America gets the first run, then europe will get the second is what I would suspect.
The main issue is that Microcenter wants you to go to thier brick and mortar stores, which I understand fully given the age of amazon and online retail. But you cant order the stuff yet from thier site and they are a major pc parts power player in the states.

It is listed on their website, but they are not selling them online. In store only for now.Microcenter has yet to list them, Amazon has yet to list them, Newegg has only listed SOLD OUT as they have never gotten them in
They still aren't listed In-Store Only at my MC in Paterson, NJ, they aren't listed at all unlike the 3600, 3600X, and 3700XIt is listed on their website, but they are not selling them online. In store only for now.
I arrived a little too late. A guy snatched the last one a couple of minutes before I got there.
I am in Bulgaria. They only have the new APUs and 3600. Was to to expect 3900 by Wednesday. There seems to be a lot of people on the list. Not sure I'll make it on the first round.In my part of EU, everything except 3600 and 3600X was a paper launch. ASUS and ASRock X570 boards also nowhere to be seen.
Listing out of stock items always felt shady to me. I am glad they're filtering them outI always fucking hate that Amazon search results come up empty when something is out of stock. That's probably one reason people think this was a paper launch - they arrive in stock for 1 minute, then disappear again.
So I take back what I said, Im happy now. Earlier today I was getting a ice coffee and Newegg sent a message saying the 3900X was in stock. So I have the Newegg App on my phone as I was ordering a ice coffee I was ordering a new cpu which I will have Thursday. 5 minutes later they were all sold out again, I feel blessed.I agree with the post title, it's basically a paper launch. No stock to be found anywhere at this time, the 3900x 3800x and 3700x are all sold out at Newegg, Amazon never seemed to have any from the start.
You might argue that about the US launch. Elsewhere anything including and above 3700X was a paper launch. If a whole continent gets ZERO processors, it is a paper launch for that continent.A paper launch was the 7/8/7 Boeing 787 rollout. This isn’t. Just because there wasn’t much stock to go around doesn’t make it fake, which is what “paper launch” means.
notice the lack of prime shipping.. it's just jackass 3rd party sellers trying to take advantage of the high demand so that every time it cycles between warehouse supplies their stuff appears.They are price gouging on 3700x. $449.99
3900x is still selling for $499.99. (sold out again)
Microcenter too, I had one reserved around 9:15 this morning and will be picking it up in about an hour.Not to mention that the 3900X came in stock today at BOTH Newegg and Amazon for a little while. Seems like they are getting new shipments in. Lot's of demand for these chips, no surprise there.
https://www.wepc.com/news/amd-ryzen-3000-launch-where-to-buy/Can anyone post or PM me the Amazon link so I can set up a notification for a 3900x? Won't show up in search results if not in stock.
Well unless someone is willing to ship it to me I am out of luck for Microcenter, only one in my state is in Southern California and I am in Northern California.If anyone looking for a 3900X is local to these areas, Micro Center has them in stock right now:
GA - Duluth
MD - Rockville
MD - Parkville
MI - Madison Heights
MN - St. Louis Park
NY - Westbury
OH - Sharonville
PA - St. Davids
TX - Houston
Seems they're doing some pretty aggressive bundle discounts too. Best of luck to those in the market for one!
