When will "journalists" learn how to write?

You say "Amazon's Best Sellers list ... is a good indication of what products are in high demand at Amazon" ... have you said anything at all?

D'oh!

I've ordered 3600x paired with B450 Tomahawk and 16Gb Ram @3200 Mhz for $426. Just compare it to the Intel, both prices and performances.

That is quite the jump in performance. I was watching that processor benchmarked against the i9 9900k and I have to say, I was impressed.
Yeah, I've watched quite a few comparisons and the processor is really offering a lot of bang for the buck. All of the new Ryzens are monsters, didn't know which one to pick. Since the most stressful operation on my PC is gaming at 1080p, I've chosen this one. Even Ryzen 5 3600 would do, but I had some extra bucks and went for the x (might do some overclocking)

I was expecting the 3600 and 3700X to lead the list, since they seem to be the best-value 6 and 8-core parts of the new lineup, but it looks like they are not in stock at Amazon, and only available from third-party sellers at marked up prices at the moment, which is likely why they are not in the top ten.

As for the point of the article, it's only logical that newly-released products should place well in a bestseller's list, so I'm not sure this is indicative of much. Ryzen processors have placed well in this list for quite a while already, so not much has changed.

I am having zero luck finding the 3900X CPU. I guess I need to place a back order with Amazon. :/

Honestly, wait for black friday. I'd never purchase close to release date for two reasons. The first one is obvious (price) and the second bios revision updates ant the teething process.

Do you mean you might turn on the automatic overclocking? I thought the non-x versions were better for manual overclocking.
