AMD Ryzen CPUs sold out at select retailers already

AMD experiences its best silicon success story to date: Ryzen CPUs are selling out unbelievably fast

AMD has launched its Ryzen CPU family to some huge fanfare, with the Ryzen 7 1800X and Ryzen 7 1700X becoming the #1 and #2 best-selling CPUs on Amazon within hours - and now, some retailers are already selling out of their first batches of pre-orders.

Right now, the Ryzen 7 1800X is unavailale on Amazon - with no ETA on new stock, with Newegg saying the Ryzen 7 1800X is out of stock. The Ryzen 7 1700X and 1700 processors are in stock for now, but I'm sure they're going to sell quickly - especially with news that the $329 processor can overclock to 4GHz+ and beat the Ryzen 7 1800X.

NCIX has the Ryzen 7 1800X, 1700X, and 1700 all available for pre-order (in both the US and Canada), while Memory Express has all 3 processors (for the Canadian market only). Fry's says that all of their Ryzen CPUs are now out of stock, so if you're in the market for a new Ryzen PC - you might want to pull the trigger, now.
