Chips are in a shortage in the market, so it's big news to hear resupplies and available stocks. However, the chance to buy AMD's new budget CPU is not that high, though there are some retailers who have the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X available and can be pre-ordered.
AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is one of the popular choices in the market. Tom's Hardware reported how this CPU has earned 4.5 stars in their review thanks to its single- and-multi-threaded performance with excellent power efficiency and PCIe Gen4 support. Its hardware has 6 cores and 12 threads and features stellar thermals, a bundled cooler, and excellent overclocking capabilities. All of these are present under the budget price of $299. The processor lives up to its reputation of being a no-compromise gaming chip on budget.
Finding the Ryzen 5 5600X should be easy now, especially after so many big retailers have received major restock updates. The U.K. has the most readily available supplies. On the other hand, U.S. retailers remain out of stock but are expecting resupplies anytime this month. Keep a lookout in these stores and order yours now whiles supplies still last.
