I took the plunge and did preorder via B&H photo. I was scanning Amazon and Newegg at 12AM and did not see any listed on the website yet. I guess I'll go for the "sure" thing. I'll let you guys know if/when it ships.

So is anybody else buying a Ryzen 5000 today, if so which one did you go for -- 5950x, 5900x, or 5600x??

Have two preorders in with B&H. One for the 5900X and one for the 5950X. Will keep whichever one ships first. If both ship at the same time I’ll keep the 5950X.

"Your order will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis."
It could be weeks if you are low on the totem pole from B&H.
When did the pre-order go live there?

Thanks for the update. So the launch isn't until 8am in the morning. LOL, guess I don't have to stay up. I also went for the 5900x. Hopefully B&H will have enough stock to satisfy all of us. The Ryzen 5000 is a SUPER Exciting launch! Finally the complete performance crown will change hands to AMD today!

I would honestly be surprised if the 5900X and 5950X didn’t sell out of the first batch within the first 10-15 minutes. It was unexpected, but links flooded Reddit in minutes.

B&h will shut off pre orders once they run out of cpus... from what i was told when i spoke to someone from there by email last week.
Going by previous B&H preorders that is definitely not true. All the CPUs are still up on their site for preorder nearly 45 minutes after going up. HIGHLY unlikely they have that many CPUs when Newegg who is a much larger reseller said that supplies will be very limited.

Preorder tab will change to backordered once they run out. According to B&H. For me this is true because that's what happened in the 3000 Series the pre-order tab change to backordered when they ran out of stock.

It changes to backordered. But they also change a TON of the existing preorders to backordered once the first batch is fulfilled. Even on the order confirmation email it says orders will be fulfilled first come first serve.

It’s happened to many, many people with Ampere cards. I’ve seen it brought up several times in discords and on Reddit.

I went and pre-ordered the 5900X from them as well.

Lol, they have the 5950X listed as a 24 core processor with 16 cores and 32 threads.
"Power up your computing experience with the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X 3.4 GHz 24-Core AM4 Processor, which features 16 cores and 32 threads to help quickly load and multitask demanding applications."

I got my order for a 5950x in at BH at 12:06 AM EST, so hopefully there were not too many ahead of me. Also got charged immediately on my CC.

I was going to go stand in the cold at Microcenter but for some reason I woke up at 11:58pm and decided to check my phone. Would have had it in earlier had lastpass not pulled some shenanigans.

Good luck everyone!

Edit: Now my order is showing as backordered. Not a good sign, but have a place in line at least.

5600X Newegg. Seems they had some countermeasures in place for bots. Had to re-enter my card number and the in stock message was a little weird.

Also, Newegg put the warranty on by default? Seems like bot tax. LOL.

Order went through for me on Amazon. Says I will get it next Thursday but showed in stock. Hopefully their system is accurate. Might take a chance on Microcenter later and see if I can get up there and get one today live. Bought the 5600X. Next week is fine if that turns out to be it since waiting for 6800XT anyway

My preorder went through on BH for a 5950X at 1:11AM CST. Thought I got in early lol. Now showing back ordered when I check order status. Was showing a preorder tab and not a back ordered tab. Pretty disappointing as I probably would have just ordered a combo on Newegg while they were available. Oh well so it goes.

I was watching NewEgg at 9EST and the 5900 and 5950 went straight to out of stock. (My point being dont be sad you pre-ordered) I put in a pre-order w BH at 2:08.... Here is hoping that AMD can deliver these chips faster than Nvidia.... Of course I have a 3090 build sitting here waiting for a chip.

I bought a 5600X from Amazon this morning. All higher SKUs on NewEgg and Amazon sold out instantly. Nothing has gone live on Best Buy yet.

I bought a Ryzen 3400 from Amazon a couple weeks ago for this new build as a temp processor. I was hoping to return it unused, but I might just have to go ahead and install that longer term if AMD stocks are not plentiful. Your build is ahead of mine as I was planning on using an older 970 that already has a waterblock installed (newer setup will also have CPU and GPU water cooled) from an older system until the new Radeon cards arrive.

Have a 5950X ordered on Amazon. Delivery slated for next week.

Have a 5900X ordered on Best Buy. Delivery on Monday.

Now to sit down and read/watch reviews so I can decide which one to keep. Wish I could've done that BEFORE securing both.

+1 for pre-ordering a 5900x @ B&H. We'll see how long it takes them to ship lol. I'm still waiting for the remaining pieces to come in so no rush.

Microcenter Marietta was sold out at 1015 am but I found out they opened at 9am and I got here at 10.

I have a 5600x as I want to compare the faster cores against my 3960x.

If it pans out they way I think then ill sell my 3960x and get a 3900x in its place fornstrictly gaming. I no longer need the power of 24 cores. Ive crunched all the videos I needed it for already.

Last I checked on the Ryzen 7 5800X at Best Buy that is available...right this minute as I type this. For me though, I'm going to wait. Sure, I could get a Ryzen 7 5800X today from Best Buy right now but I just upgraded to Ryzen via a Ryzen 7 3700X CPU based system over the last Labor Day weekend. The machine is running really well so I don't see any reason to get it right now. Besides I wouldn't upgrade to it until the 2nd half of next year anyway as that would mean I need to uninstall the 3700X, install the 5800X in its place, reformat Windows and install everything onto that build. I guess what I'm saying is if everything is doing really good with what I currently have then it goes back to the old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." But I pose this to all of you here, if I get a 5800X CPU from Best Buy now and upgrade this weekend aside from more speed and power what else do I get? Also, would it be worth reformatting my entire machine only 2 months after I just did it for this? Out!

5900x sold out instantly so I got a 5800x. Looks like for gaming, which is what I care about, the performance difference is nil.

My B&H order is also showing "backorder". Hopefully I get my cpu from batch2. I guess waiting another week is fine considering that the 5000 series is sold out everywhere that I'm looking. :p The reviews for the 5900X are amazing so I hope I don't have to wait too much longer!!
