Question Is AMD CPU production getting back to normal?

I got in stock notification for Ryzen 3 3300x(wanted one 10 months back for a build but ultimately got Intel i3 instead) from B&H. Over last few weeks noticed stock for most AMD 5000 CPUs has improved(but somehow price gouging in India still hasn't changed). Is AMD finally getting on top production and supply or its just slump in demand?

It's probably just the current level of demand at inflated prices starting to get filled. Even if the supply hasn't gotten any better, eventually everyone willing to pay MSRP + $xxx for a CPU has one and the prices need to come down a little in order to get the people willing to pay MSRP + $xx for those same CPUs.

Checked for 3000G and 3300X in the German market (on Geizhals): Both are "available" for sale but not in stock and at over twice the MSRP, still at their long term highest price.

Only the 5000 series improved as a whole. Of the 3000 series 3600, 3600X, 3700X, 3800X and 3900X are equally available here.

The 3300X has been available off and on for the past two months. The 5900X and 5950X have been available at MSRP on some of the popular vendor sites for the last six weeks.

Just saw that Newegg has the 3300X for $149.99, not a bad deal considering the 3600 is not really around.

Intel stated that the issues with substrate would peak in Q2 and be resolved by the end of 2021 with massive investment from many parties to shore up that (what must have been) neglected part of the supply chain for all CPUs.

Shipments of automotive CPUs are way up as well according to many manufacturers.

I am saying I don't think it is an AMD thing but an industry wide push back to more normal supply chain deliveries and pricing.

Which is fantastic.

w/regards to AMD specifically, I believe that they are looking at buying dedicated capacity with a partner going forward, something they sold off during their previous down cycle.

I'd say things are normal for the typical consumer now. Laptops are still hard to find, but that's more of remote learning/work issue, right?

Graphic cards are still the wild wild west.
