edit: Twitter link goes to Newegg announcement.

I am not getting up at 5:30 am just to pound F5. I guess we'll see if Newegg or other Canadian retailers will be building backorder queues. I expect shortages similar to the NVidia video cards, with Intel "fanboys" adding salty commentary on paper launches :)

Do you guys suppose that all the GPU and CPU supply issues will level out by Christmas, or is the demand just going to go up again at Christmas time putting us back in the same spot? 🤔

My hopes are dwindling fast. The stock CC shows for in-store 5800x is pretty terrible. 5900x stock looks like 1 per store. And like MemEx are doing in store only.

My belief is that AMD at least has a decent chance of catching up fast. TSMC 7nm yields are really good for them. Nvidia who knows :(
