The long line of people you see in the picture below is not waiting to buy tickets to the Avengers movie or wait to buy the new iPhone version. In fact, it is PC followers who are queuing up at a computer store in the US to wait for AMD's new CPUs, Ryzen 3000 – yes, they line up to buy a desktop CPU.
Queue to buy Ryzen 3000 at Micro Center since it's not bright yet.
Micro Center computer store officials have confirmed with PCWorld that a series of stores have PC queuing enthusiasts waiting to buy AMD's hit new CPUs when they start selling from last Sunday morning. For its part, AMD said the sale of the Ryzen 3000 CPU is a "historical" event and describes the need for it to be "very significant."
People line up at another Micro Center store.
Right from 6 am, there were people waiting for the store to open to be the first person to own this CPU. With Ryzen 9 3900X performance reviews, this is absolutely worth it.
Interestingly, AMD's Ryzen 3000 series is the first commercial x86 CPU built on the 7nm process. To commemorate the company's surpassing rival Intel on the chip process, AMD decided to sell its 7nm CPUs on July 7.
This queue is not only available at Micro Center chain stores. A series of photos posted from many parts of the world also showed people queuing up long to wait for Ryzen 3000 to buy, and even this took place in uncomfortable conditions at all. For example, in the Akihabara district that sells electronics in Tokyo, Japan, buyers have been patiently waiting in the sky to buy Ryzen 3000.
This has surprised the analysts. According to Moor Insights and Strategy analyst Patrick Moorhead, said: "As far as I remember, for years there was no one queuing up to buy a PC component. I have seen it appear when selling PC game discs or even Windows operating systems but not for a processor or graphics card.. "
Currently, even those who wait to buy new iPhones rarely have to camp or wait in line, they can order by phone or online and wait to receive the goods.
But if you search online shopping sites like Amazon.com and Newegg.com, you can see that the Ryzen 3000 CPU is out of stock. Besides, there were a series of reports showing that Ryzen 3000 was out of stock from Brazil to Tustin. Now perhaps the only way to get the Ryzen 3000 CPU is to buy the motherboard with that CPU available.

Moreover, the initial inventory report showed that, on Monday afternoon, all 25 Micro Center stores sold out of Ryzen 3000 CPUs. For those eager to own this CPU, they didn't have much choice. Other options: Or wait in line to buy in front of the store, or have to wait for the next sale opening to own them.
And even Micro Center doesn't have Ryzen 9 3900X.
Having long lines of people waiting to buy their products is fortunate for any company, but it also has the ability to turn into black goods very quickly when many customers are disappointed to come back empty handed.
Therefore, AMD quickly issued a statement saying: "We are providing significant quantities for online retail and retail partners. We are excited to see a positive reaction to the Radeon 5700 series and the desktop processor Ryzen 3000. AMD is rapidly adding products to online retail and retail partners around the globe. After significant demand in the last launch date. "
