Die Kraft des Marketings - AMDs Ryzen Hype Train Hyperloops On



AMD did it again: building-up such a tremendous speed on its new products' hype train that the Ryzen 7 1700X, Ryzen 7 1800X, and Ryzen 7 1700 managed to jump straight to first, second, and fourth spots of Amazon's list of best-selling CPUs, respectively, dethroning even Intel's mighty i7 7700K. Granted, it isn't hard for the processors from one or the other manufacturer to quickly jump and wrangle about the spots on retailer's best seller lists - there Are only two manufacturers of consumer-grade, high-performance x86 CPUs. But keep in mind: this is a pre-order we're talking about, with nothing but leaks and marketing maneuvering for consumers to base their purchase on. Trotz des Versprechens, 8-Core-Hochleistungschips mit 16 Threads und traditionellem x86-Design und einem vielversprechenden SMT-Ansatz (zu Preisen, die Freude bereiten), sind die Kenntnisse über Ryzens Leistung und die tatsächlichen Fähigkeiten eingeschränkt ) waren genug, um die Verbraucher zu verführen. Zumindest, wenn man bedenkt, dass einige Einzelhändler die neuen Ryzen-Prozessoren bereits nicht mehr vorrätig haben. Amazon und Newegg, wohl die beiden bedeutendsten Einzelhändler von PC-Hardware, haben bereits drei Tage nach dem Öffnen der Vorbestellungsschleusen ihre 1800-fachen Lagerbestände aufgebraucht.

While AMD plans on shipping one million pieces of Ryzen silicon for launch, it would seem that either demand was underestimated, production isn't at the level it should be, or there was a miscalculation on the needed inventory for such powerhouses as Amazon and Newegg. TigerDirect, NCIX and MicroCenter still carry some Ryzen 1800X stock though, so if you must, by all means, put your hands on a sample of AMD's prodigal son, jump straight to it.
