Buy iPhone 12 Pro or Ryzen 9 5950X? New Ryzen 5000 processors are already available for pre-order, but with a surcharge

The latest Ryzen 5000 processors were unveiled a week ago and will be available on November 5th. However, in some places they can already be pre-ordered. For example, on the Italian site Amazon. True, with a certain margin.

So, for the 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X they ask for 1032 euros (about the same as for the iPhone 12 Pro), for the Ryzen 9 5900X – 695 euros, and for the Ryzen 7 5800X – 570 euros. For comparison, the recommended prices for the US excluding taxes are 800, 550 and 450 dollars, respectively. That is, there is now a decent margin, which cannot be explained by taxes or another region. In the EU countries, the recommended prices are expected at around 820, 565 and 460 euros, respectively. However, the situation with the markup is quite common for the expected product. Especially when the Christmas season is around the corner.
