Tried again today - got there 30min before opening. Same deal - they got some 5600x and 5800x. No Ryzen 9's. They sold through all the 5600x's before I got inside, and the 5800x's shortly after. It's crazy how high the demand is right now. There was a group of guys in the BYOPC being told the B550 board they selected would almost certainly need to be flashed in order to recognize their new 5800x CPU. They had lots of questions about what that meant, but they were buying one. If there's one thing 2020 may have done that's positive, it's probably adding a TON of new PC enthusiasts.Went to the local Microcenter this morning (Cambridge, MA). Got there at about 8:30am, store opens at 9.
One of the store employees told me don't bother trying for anything new on the weekend, it's insanity when they open and they never get a truck.
They got a handful of 3080's last night. Sold to the folks who were outside in tents all night. (It was below freezing last night, frost on the car this morning!)
