Now that we’ve passed by the Ryzen 8000 series, it’s time to take a look at where to buy AMD Ryzen 9000 series CPUs in a few different regions. This is yet another desktop CPU generation, and the next stage for the AM5 socket, now bringing us up to the Zen 5 microarchitecture. While we’re counting down the days until the Ryzen 9000 series release date, it’s a good time to start planning where to buy one if you’re looking to upgrade at launch. We’ve put together some expected retailers for now.

Unlike the APU-focused 8000 series, AMD is back on track for giving us the best CPUs for gaming in this new generation, taking on their rivals Intel as always. We expect to see the 9950X, 9900X, 9700X, and 9600X first in line – but we’ll be sure to come back and update you with a full list of SKUs once announced.

When will I be able to buy AMD Ryzen 9000 series CPUs?

AMD has been following a pretty similar pattern when it comes to launching their latest (odd number) desktop CPU ranges. As per our current release date prediction, you should be able to buy a new AMD Ryzen 9000 series CPU sometime in Q3 2024. That being said, it will likely be towards the end of Q3, with September being a realistic estimate – as that’s when the 7000 series released. There is also a chance you’ll be able to pre order a little earlier, depending on retailer.

Do I need to upgrade my motherboard for 9000 series?

If you’re upgrading to the 9000 series, motherboard compatibility should be one of your main concerns. The Ryzen 9000 series will be sticking to the AM5 socket, so if you have a motherboard designed for the 7000 or 8000 series, then you’ll be good to go – a BIOS update may be needed at most. However, we suspect that many people will be upgrading from an older AM4 board, and in this case you’ll need to buy a compatible AM5 motherboard.
