What if the shortage of 5000 cpus is to clear out the remaining 3000 cpu supply?
Doubt it. Wouldn't they have cut prices, at least a little, on the 3000 series? Retailers only have so much shelf space, they wouldn't want to hang onto inventory that's not selling any longer than they have to.What if the shortage of 5000 cpus is to clear out the remaining 3000 cpu supply?
I saw that and thought, "figures they come back into stock when I have been out of work for a month." Same thing happened last year with an Asus RTX3090 Strix. I had money set aside and then family needed some financial help. Soon after, I had the opportunity to get the card and no money.AMD.com had 5800x last week for a couple days at MSRP.
I have had a B550 MSI Mortar for a while now with a Ryzen 3100 I picked up close to MSRP and selling it will cover the extra .. now I have to wait for a 6700 XT or put my RX 5700 with it .. just a RX 570 at the moment , It came Fed Ex with - in 2 days and I didn't pay for that service which was $384 shippedDepending on how much extra, it's almost worth it to me. I almost did, when you factor in the 4 hour total drive, probably stopping for a meal, etc...+$50-$75 to get one off Amazon ain't such a bad deal.
