AMD’s new Ryzen chips are available for order, still in stock at most retailers

Ryzen header
The wait is finally over. On March 2, you’ll be able to run out and purchase one of AMD’s new Ryzen CPUs — if there are any left. Pre-orders started just last week at 185 retail outlets, but you might want to get yours in quick, because even the big box stores are limiting how many you can order at a time. So if you want to be among the first to pick up a Ryzen CPU, read on, as we’ve broken down initial availability at a few major retail outlets below.

Where you can order now

Among the first to list Ryzen chips for pre-order, NewEgg was at the head of the pack. Despite limiting the number of Ryzen CPUs you can order at once — five per customer — availability still looks good. If you pre-order from NewEgg, you can expect your new Ryzen CPU to ship after March 2, 2017. It doesn’t appear that ship dates have started to slip just yet, so you might want to get in before they do.

NewEgg also has a number of pre-order listings for Ryzen-compatible motherboards from the usual OEMs, including Asus, MSI, Gigabyte, and ASRock. Though a few of these have ship dates as late as March 9.

Amazon also has all three CPUs available for pre-order, alongside a number of compatible motherboard bundles, and ready-to-ship gaming PCs featuring Ryzen CPUs.

Component wholesaler Tiger Direct also has all three Ryzen chips available for pre-order, without any shipping estimates. The CPUs are listed as “out of stock” and “ships when available,” but it doesn’t appear that there are any limits on the number of Ryzen chips you can pick up at once.

If you’re more in the mood for picking up a whole system, both Best Buy has a number of pre-order listings for CyberPowerPC gaming rigs built with Ryzen chips.

So far, overall availability is looking good, and we have yet to see any single retailer inflating prices beyond the MSRP for all three chips. We’ll keep an eye out for updated deals and availability as more retailers join in the fray.

AMD’s integrated graphics might beat the most popular GPU on Steam

Most people don't expect much from integrated graphics solutions, but it appears that AMD's new iGPU can do a surprisingly good job.

The AMD Radeon 780M was spotted in a benchmark by Wccftech, showing off the performance of the AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS and the RDNA iGPU itself. Who would have thought that this card would be able to beat Steam's No. 1 discrete GPU?

AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D vs. Intel Core i9-13900K: only one choice for PC gamers
AMD's Ryzen 9 7950X3D inside of its packaging.

The AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D and Intel Core i9-13900K are undoubtedly two of the best processors you can buy, but they aren't equal. We threw both of the CPUs on the test bench to answer the age-old question: is AMD or Intel better?

Based on our testing, the Ryzen 9 7950X3D wins this bout, mostly on the back of the excellent gaming performance AMD's 3D V-Cache technology brings. Intel's Core i9-13900K still holds up, particularly in productivity apps, but Team Red takes the win this time around.
