I was told the same thing from B&H rep. I could only select pre-order for a 5900x at like 5am this morning. They did charge my B&H card so IDKdid you talk to someone on the phone? i have a preorder i got within the first few minutes last night. im thinking of canceling it.
A charge or a hold? Cause I asked them since I ordered right when it became available yesterday and they said they placed a hold until they ship...with no ETA of courseB&H Change

Probably a hold but it shows up on my account as pending at the moment. I'm thinking they will get more stock next week and fulfill these pre-orders soon
I sure hope so. I have nothing else right now so at this time, they are my only hope with my Asus hero arriving on Monday to sit sadly in my room lolProbably a hold but it shows up on my account as pending at the moment.

I would NEVER buy from a scalper and have zero respect for anyone that does..no matter which excuses they come up with to justify feeding those leeches.I feel that the stock levels of these CPUs will keep coming so holding out for a bit is not as bad as caving to scalpers. Let them sit on them .
Assuming a 12 inch wafer that's about 800 chiplets per wafer, at 100% yield thats 23.5m chiplets per month. A more realist yield of 80% gives 18.8m chiplets a month. I would say that TSMC is not the bottle neck but somewhere else in the supply chain.Is that 21% really cover xbox and playstation? Not under a diff. contract with ms and sony? TSMC doing 140k wafer a month. 21% of that is 29k wafers a month. Would take a bit of research to find yields, die sizes, and sales numbers (to estimate allocation).
Too bad they can't port Zen2 to GloFo. I would like a $120 3600
Thats why I think B&H is expecting another shipment next week or something or at least within the next 28 days before your statement comes in.From the confirmation email:
Your order will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis.
Orders billed to PayPal, other digital wallets (e.g., Apple Pay or Google Pay) or non-USA addresses will be charged immediately upon checkout.
So if you didn't use the above payment methods then it could just be a hold.
had the same problem on newegg and amazon. Bestbuy was easy to find but the whole process sucks.I do t understand why the links to these CPU’s were so hard to find. I wasted the entire time they were in stock just trying to find the listing for them on Amazon. You still can’t search for them on Amazon.
On that they totally sucked on Amazon trying to find them, I get that they launched a few minutes later to supposedly give people time to find them but that was an unnecessary additional obstacle for people. Even finding the landing page for the 30 series was ridiculous but the people with the bots already had them... There was excuses of it being an added bot protection layer, I don't believe that it was effective or needed because it hendered real buyers more.I do t understand why the links to these CPU’s were so hard to find.

I was looking at 10am, sold out everywhere.Looks like the launch day voters were wrong. I tried to get a 5900x but it sold out instantly. I was frantically lookimg through reviews of the 5800x to see how much the difference was between them and then those sold out also. Guess we are at the mercy of tsmc production line now.
My theory is that this year is special. People are gearing up for a long, boring Covid-19 winter where everything is closed by buying new toys. If the vaccine thing works out we'll end up with price cuts and plenty of supply of computer parts and other toys plus a draft beer and French fry shortage.I sincerely hope all hardware releases don't become a game of retail whack-a-mole.
