AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X3D, the fastest CPU for gaming is finally available. We've reviewed and tested the 5800X3D and confirmed its gaming performance on our test suite of games that have placed it at the top of our list of the best CPUs for gaming

The AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D uses eight-cores and 16-threads with a max boost clock of up to 4.5GHz similar to its 5000-series family. What makes this chip different is a new 3D-stacked SRAM technology that employs a total of 96MB of L3 cache to give the 5800X3D amazing gaming performance.

The fact that this CPU still uses the AM4 socket makes it an affordable upgrade for a lot of people running an older AMD-based system and as long as the price stays similar to AMD's SEP of $449, it's an awful lot cheaper than its competition the Core i9-12900KS.

Where to Buy an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D

So, where can you pick up an AMD Ryzen 7 5900X3D? Here is a list of sellers that are currently offering the new CPU— but be warned the prices for the 5800X3D are fluctuating rapidly as the new product is very much in demand and selling out of stock incredibly quickly.

  • Adorama for $449: Currently has stock.
  • Newegg for $449:This seller is now out of stock. 
  • AMD.com for $449: AMD is currently operating a virtual waiting list for stock of the 5800X3D, this doesn't guarantee purchase and the wait time is over an hour at the moment. 
  • B&H for $449: B&H is operating a waiting-list-only approach for orders.

Another option for trying to get your hands on an AMD 5800X3D is to purchase it as part of a pre-configured prebuilt PC - such as this Alienware Aurora Ryzen Edition R14 from Dell.

This Alienware configuration features the Ryzen 7 5800X3D CPU from AMD and an Nvidia RTX 3080, with 32GB of Ram and a 1TB NVMe SSD. 

We wish we could find more, but our main advice is to be patient. The product is new and more sellers will become available in the near future as stocks get into the hands of retail outlets.  Current limited supply may cause the prices to rise at times. We will continue to update this post as availability arises.

    I rolled on over to Micro center on commute to work and saw almost nobody there at the Tustin California location. After work I stopped by there and picked one up. I noticed on their internal inventory system it said they had 40 in stock at the location minus the one I bought. The employee that was helping me said I was the first person who he personally got asked to buy one that day. This all happened on 4/20/2022 yesterday so if you are reading this and are in the area go by and pick one up if you are so inclined.

    I’m in the UK and ordered mine as soon as released. I checked a couple of hours later and it was out of stock with estimated restock at the end of May.

    I think the release stock was low, like every other nearly paper release from tech companies today.

    I was expecting it to be low just based on recent trends, hence why I got my order in ASAP. I have my doubts about when it will come back in stock and I don’t trust the estimate given by my retailer, a monitor I ordered from them took 3 months when they originally estimated 3 weeks.
