It might have to do with yields but it seems more likely to be a simple price/performance equation. The 5800x simply isn't $150 + Cooler better than a 5600x. It seems most local stores (such as Microcenter) get a similar amount of 5600x and 5800x (maybe even more 5600X) but the 5600x sell like fire. I know I have little interest in the 5800X, but I'm very interested in the 5600X.
