Good news, the 16-core, 32-thread AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is expected to be available for purchase by the end of this month. A German retail store, Digitec, has listed the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X CPU on its website with sales starting from the 30th of September.
The seller has also specified that the CPU is not guaranteed to be delivered in September. It can be because the processor will be available just a day before the start of the next month. It could also be a pre-order, but the website doesn’t explicitly specify the same. Regardless, customers who order the AMD Ryzen 9 3950X processor will probably have it by the mid of October at the maximum.
Digitec has listed the processor for €999 ($1100 USD appx.) which might be a placeholder for the moment. AMD has announced that the processor will launch at $749 (USD) and we expect the price to be in its vicinity.
