Marking another hardware launch in the absolute year that has been 2020, the brand new Ryzen 5000 CPUs are now on sale. Stock has once again been absolutely flying off the shelves and going like hot cakes. It's been yet another gaming tech launch that has left many disappointed. However, it's still worth persevering with as you may just get lucky. 

To get you started, we've rounded up some AMD Ryzen 5000 CPU retailers below who are stockists of all things PC gaming tech and are your best bets for getting hold of one of the new processors. Be warned, however - this has got '2020 hardware launch' written all over it, and stock is incredibly hard to come by. Much like the launch of the RTX 3080 prices, the RTX 3090 stock, and the RTX 3070 prices too (and even the PS5 deals and chances to buy an Xbox Series X) stock is at blink-and-miss-it levels. But you might get lucky, so it's worth trying with the places we've rounded up below.

The AMD Ryzen 5000 CPUs are likely to go straight into best CPU for gaming lists up and down the internet. Early signs are that the 5000 series will offer excellent gaming performance but will retain their position as a very affordable CPU entry point into PC gaming compared to their Intel competitors. 

Have at it and godspeed!
