    "Lots of stock" coming in the next two weeks means... well, I guess we'll see. With Ampere so far any comment like this meant "really just a handful of cards".

    I'm upgrading as a Christmas present to myself. I'm more concerned about GPU availability.

    I reckon a CPU weighs about 50g, so "tons" would be at least 35 thousand or so...

    Split across say 75 countries (35K / 75 = 466)
    Split across 4 models (466 / 3 = 116)
    Split across say 3 stores on average per country (116 / 3)

    Then that 35K would translate into a mere 38.6 CPUs each shop got of each model on average.

    So it would actually have to be way more than a ton shipped:p

    My board ships tomorrow Asus x570 ROG
    My CPU (5800x) who knows.
    I was told i would have a better chance of a 5800x than a 5900x.

    He did say "tons", plural. So that's at least two tons, which is 77.2 processors per store!
    ...
    I hope they're giving a discount to the guy that gets the 0.2

    Not done on a semi-wet napkin = instant dismissal of results.

    Hi all,
    I placed my order order at 14.04 with Scan on launch day and only received an email recently saying I'm queue position 109, I've ordered the 5900x so fingers crossed I will get it soon,

    Like with gpus when there is a waiting list for one it means they did not ship enough of them

    A while off then if AMD are drip feeding?!, wow only 40 units expected that's pretty low for the 5800, definitely a paper launch :(
