Where to buy AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPU in South Africa

AMD has recently launched its new series of processors, The AMD Ryzen 5000. The launch has left many gamers in a pursuit to update their rigs with these new chips.  The Ryzen 5000 Series Desktop Processors promises serious gaming power, and its all due to the new and improved Zen 3 architecture that AMD announced a while ago. It’s no surprise that everyone’s is anxious and looking to get ahold of one to upgrade or for their next gaming PC.

AMD really impressed the Gaming world and many computer enthusiasts with the performance of Zen 3, which was also used on the new gaming consoles by Microsoft and Sony. But unfortunately, AMD encountered the same issue of “Stock Availability”.

‘Out of stock’ is sadly a term many of us tech users are dealing with a lot right now, from Nvidia Ampere RTX 30-series GPUs, such as the RTX 3080, to AMD’s RX 6800-series GPUs, to the Xbox Series X and PS5, and right now to the Ryzen 5000 CPUs.

Fortunately, the stock issues are not that bad in South Africa, especially for the lower end 5000 Series processors. Major stock problems seem to be more related to the higher end CPU, the Ryzen 9 5950X, but we still were able to find on sale in some stores.
