TBH I'd rather be scalped by a person than Jeff Bezos.Supply and demand will correct itself and a price will be found. I'd much rather money go to a tech company than Amazon or a bunch of scalpers.
CDW has them on preorder for about $585 when you make an account. I have on there in case it takes awhile to find one right at MSRP.Just out of curiosity whats the most you all would spend over retail to get a 5900x?
It makes no sense why there would be less 5900x than 5800x The 5900x uses salvaged dies where the 5800x needs a full die. Given it is supply limited you'd expect the 5950x and 5900x to be the most common unless they are having a very hard time reaching the very slightly higher speed binning. Given the reviews that doesn't seem likely.This is combined supply & interest. There were insanely more 5600x available at launch, and also significantly more 5800x sold, than 5900x and 5950x combined. At least based on verified owner review counts. For example, Newegg reviews so far in the 2 weeks since launch:
130 x 5600x
50 x 5800x
13 x 5900x
7 x 5950x
