There is no leaks nowhere in sight. There is no special orders or commands from AMD(military Gestapo style), which explicitly prohibit OEM Renoir APU sales to classic retail market.The thing is, those models are OEM-only they should not be leaking into retail channels at this speed.
AMD just doesn't care, because there are no very strict rules and prohibitions.It is just classic bussines, one way or another AMD sells everything that TSMC can produce.
As reminder, R5 3500/R5 3500X should be China only CPU.But in reality, as you see Germany and Croatia is also part of China.
Because of mining madness=GPU shortage, there is much lager demand for Renoir/Cezanne APU in retail DiY market.GPU shortage will not end in near future.Now or today or in the future, solid iGPU will be very important no doubt.
