AMD Ryzen 5 5600X & R7 5800X to have Ample Supply in Q1; Ryzen 9 Parts to Suffer Shortages

According to a report from WCCFTech, AMD’s Ryzen 5000 CPUs are going to be in decent supply in the coming months, but only on the lower to midrange side. Out of all the Ryzen 5000 parts, the Ryzen 5 5600X is going to see the most supply, followed by the Ryzen 7 5800X. On the downside, the higher-end Ryzen 9 5900X and 5950X are expected to be available in very limited quantities in retail. The reason for this is quite straightforward. The Ryzen 9 parts have two CCDs while the Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 chips have only one which makes producing the latter easier.

CPUDemand/Supply Notes
5950X, 5900X, 3800X, 3300 and 3100Very Low Qty.
3900X, 3700X, 3200G, 3400G and 3600XSome Qty.
5800X, 5600X and 3600Decent Qty.

Interestingly, AMD will continue to produce ample quantities of the Ryzen 5 3600 due to the lack of the 5600, and the Ryzen 3000 family in limited quantities. Interestingly, the lower-end Ryzen 3 parts will be produced in very low quantities. This isn’t surprising as the Ryzen 3 3300X has essentially been discontinued.

In Europe, both the Ryzen 5 5600X and the Ryzen 7 5800X are being sold within 50 Euros of the MSRP which is pretty great. The Ryzen 9 parts, however, are quite a bit expensive, with the 5900X priced at €849 and the 5950X at €1,189. The prices over in the UK are more or less the same, with the 5600X and 5800X being sold very close to the MSRP while the 5900X and 5950X costing 20-30% more than the SEP.

In the Indian market, TPS Tech, an authorized seller of AMD hardware has started selling the Ryzen 5000 CPUs at exactly the launch prices which is pretty remarkable. Considering that prices in this region are generally over the top, this is good news for people from the subcontinent. At the time of writing, only the Ryzen 5 5600X and 5800X are available, but the 5900X and 5950X are out of stock. It’d be fair to say that that won’t change in the next two months.
