I am shopping for a 9900k and it seems like it is sold out at top retailers and people are also price gauging on other websites. I am wondering how many of these CPU's is Intel producing per day/week/month to meet the market demand. Anyone know how things are going at the Intel production factory?

there have been a few news reports that intel is backlogged because of the 10mm die debacle (3.5 years behind in development) - and that's caused a surplus of demand on the 14mm die CPUs.

I was on Newegg's (USA) and amazon's(USA) pre-order list, and on Nov 2 got a notice from Newegg that they had a shipment in hand, within 60 minutes of that email's rcpt i called in and was told they were already sold out - the CSR was user friendly and went to see when the next shipment was due - came back saying they expected a shipment of 100 units on Nov 30th (that's for the Newegg US market, 100 units total)

i found one earlier this week overseas in UK, Overclockers UK, and they had and still have some OEM units - OEM means it comes to them on a tray, presumably 50 or 100 to a tray, and only carries a 1 yr warranty - it does not ship in that "cute" hexagon cube box, ie no retail packaging, The retail unit carries a 3 yr warranty. But they're in the same shape as far as retail units, ie "pre-orders" only

they will back out VAT for non UK buyers, which brought the price down to 475 British pounds (approx $620 USD) and it ran $20 shipping DHL, i ordered Tuesday and it arrivedf yesterday

Thats not really public information, I doubt you can find a real answer to that.
This happens quite often with new hardware launches, a shortage, price hikes, then a return to MSRP later.
Even if you knew how many they made in a given timespan, its obviously the same number as they are selling.

If someone could even answer that they wouldn't be offering it up on a public forum, that is private company information.

Based on everything that has been released they are making as many as they can as fast as they can. Demand will slow down, you should be able to get one shortly.
 
Intel has a pretty tight NDA with employees I doubt anyone that is making the $$$ they do would risk their jobs to answer a question like that. Think off all the problems lose lips can cause a Tech company.

The only company that released open stats was SAMSUNG and the massive plant they have makes 60000 a month, a desktop CPU is going to be 2X slower and these 9th gen CPU's are 2X harder than other models. Intel has 4 plants online producing chips but they have a priority to fill OEM and Enterprise order first.

Intel is pushing its old fabrication tech to the limit, so the yield on these chips is low, and they're probably behind the server chips in priority. I wouldn't expect the 9900k to exist on the market the same way previous Intel gens have. Their manufacturing process simply can't keep up anymore. The 9900k exists to maintain a company image, not to fill Intel coffers.
