In case you were wondering, no, AMD hasn't managed to fsck everything up. It's still making lots of money


I'd agree - but supply's been patchy

Also worth looking at the prices they seem to be getting.

When I bought right at the start of last year, my 3900X was ~£400 and the one above 3950X was ~£600.

Those prices have stuck there for over a year now.

New range has 5900X at ~£600 and the 5950X is ~£800

i.e. Their new chips haven't replaced their old ones, they're co-existing with a old with offset price points

My guess is that without demand, they'd have just positioned the new models at the old price points, and discounted the old.
