These days it’s nothing short of a miracle to score some of the latest gaming hardware that takes performance to all new highs. In a rare instance, we managed to actually find some of the blazing-fast AMD Ryzen 5000 CPU bundles in stock and near MSRP with a reputable retailer. Antonline is a U.S.-based retailer that specializes in a number of consumer products that also appeal to gamers. Right now, you can get the 5600X or 5800X from them along with a couple of bundled extras.
No matter which CPU bundle you go with, there’s three months of Xbox Game Pass for PC thrown in along with a year subscription to Microsoft 365 Personal. You do end up paying an extra $80 USD over individual retail for these extras. Still, you get some decent additions and it seems inconsequential compared to the madness going on across the rest of the internet. There’s a limit of 1 item per customer of course, and ground shipping is free.
AMD first launched the Ryzen 5000 Series CPUs for desktop back in November of last year. The performance and value of AMD’s latest generation of CPUs received an overwhelmingly positive reception from PC gaming enthusiasts and professionals alike. Initial stock sold out within minutes and the situation has remained hectic since then. AMD CEO Lisa Su went on record as CES 2021 and commented that the company expected “tightness in the supply chain” to continue through the first half of 2021. That makes today’s availability from Antonline a very rare opportunity for prospective buyers to find these AMD Ryzen 5000 processors readily in stock.
Something within reach
Big shoutout to Antonline for giving us a heads up so that more of these coveted CPUs can actually make it into the hands of gamers rather than scalpers and other resellers. Naturally, you’ll want to tell your friends immediately if they are interested in upgrading. Supplies are sure to disappear fast.
We reached out to Antonline to inquire about total availability and the response was that “quantity is limited for both bundles so customers should act fast.”
