This year, as you’re probably aware, has been plagued by stock issues, making the latest tech extremely elusive and leaving customers grasping at any straws they can to secure anything before Christmas.
While it doesn’t look like inventory of either Nvidia’s or AMD’s GPUs is returning any time soon, there might be light at the end of the tunnel for those looking to grab a Ryzen 5000 series CPU with various stock updates making the rounds. These mainly come from UK with retailer Scan, in particular, aiming to keep customers as informed as possible as to when the order backlog with be shipped as well as when any new processors will be received in their warehouses.
These details from Scan suggest that they’ll have stock of all the 5000 series variants before Christmas with three delivery dates leading up to December 21st. This will be a delivery of over two thousand, fulfilling any backdated orders as well as giving the eagerly awaiting public another shot at buying one.
That’s not the last of the expected stock before the year is up though with even an bigger shipment expected on December 28th, proposing over four thousand of these CPUs being received.
This will give hope to many who want to get their new PC build up and running before the year is out and gives gamers the opportunity to enjoy all the latest game releases such as Cyberpunk 2077 which drops on December 10th.
All that we can hope that the same number, or even more CPUs, are being distributed globally and this isn’t just UK-based otherwise there’s going to be a whole lot of AMD fans bitterly disappointed.
