Prospective buyers can finally get their hands on the elusive Ryzen 9 3900X. For those interested, AMD's latest 7nm, Ryzen 3000 flagship can be had over at Amazon or Best Buy for $499 -- the actual MSRP, and not the seriously inflated prices we've seen recently. Newegg also seems to have replenished stock of the Ryzen 9 3900X, but the current price is $530. As more stock surfaces at retailers, we'd expect the prices to settle accordingly.
The Ryzen 9 3900X has been hard to get since its July launch this past summer, with prices reaching well over $800 as stock was so limited and sporadic. Here's hoping that supply and price become a bit more stable as we approach the holiday shopping season.
AMD's Ryzen 9 3900X is the current flagship for AMD's 7nm, Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 lineup. However, the Ryzen 9 3900X will have to relinquish its flagship status come November, as AMD is set to launch the highly anticipated Ryzen 9 3950X. If early leaks are any indication, the 16C/32T chip should continue to disrupt the status quo in the consumer CPU segment.
