Where to buy AMD Ryzen 5600X, 5800X, 5900X and 5950X CPUs

All the US and UK retailers with stock of Ryzen 5000 series processors.

AMD's Ryzen 5000 processors have finally arrived - and as you'll find in our Ryzen 5800X and 5900X review, they're damn good, finally challenging Intel for the gaming performance crown thanks to better single-core performance. Now that they're out, you might be wondering where to order them - and that's where this page comes in. We've rounded up all the retailers in the US and UK that have stock of the new CPUs, so you can get in and out with a new processor as quickly as possible.

So why are these processors so hotly anticipated? In short, it's because Intel processors have held an advantage in games for a long time, especially at 1080p where the CPU is often the bottleneck of the system. Ryzen processors have offered great value thanks to their low cost of entry and excellent multi-threaded performance, especially for content creation applications like video encoding or 3D rendering, but that strength hasn't translated into games. With Ryzen 5000, that weakness seems to have finally been solved, with the new CPUs often performing as well or better than Intel processors in a range of games at 1080p.

All that is to say that these processors are expected to be in high demand, so here's what you need to know - and the web pages you should probably bookmark!

How fast is Ryzen 5000?

It depends on the game or other workload you run, but performance is very impressive. We're seeing the 5900X nearly match the old 3950X in some content creation tasks, while in games the 5800X and 5900X often match up favourably against the Core i9 10900K and Core i5 10600K. In some games they have a narrow lead, while in others they're slower than Intel's best but still within the same ballpark, even at 1080p. At 1440p or 4K, often the advantage is very minor indeed, making these the first Ryzen CPUs that deserve a full-throated recommendation for gaming. You can check our Ryzen 5800X and 5900X review for more details.

In order to show you what 4K gaming actually looks like we needed to build our own platform to supply high quality 4K video for offline viewing. So we did.

Our videos are multi-gigabyte files and we've chosen a high quality provider to ensure fast downloads. However, that bandwidth isn't free and so we charge a small monthly subscription fee of $5. We think it's a small price to pay for unlimited access to top-tier quality encodes of our content. Thank you.
