Is there a motherboard shortage?

Recommended Posts

Circaflex    3,632

Was looking to throw together a high-end Intel or AMD rig and it seems everything high-end, is sold out for both parties. Is there something new on the horizon? I know intel has the new chipset coming, which is a socket change, so I was leaning towards x570 and AMD but I cannot find any boards in stock.

Sure does appear to be a shortage (looking at NewEgg and Amazon for x570...practically nothing). Kind of weird that I haven't seen any articles about shortages.

COVID-19 virus, it hurts us all. Delivery is slow, and the board manufacturers are playing low...

Getting highly annoyed with amazon.. ordered a laptop replacement fan on May 1st and it will be arriving tomrrow, and it said prime. Amazon needs to give out some serious refunds on prime memberships otherwise they may seem a large amounts of Prime cancellations. Lets just say if I was paying monthly for Prime I would cancel.

It makes sense, I was just somewhat surprised to see high-end parts also on short supply. Oh well, the build can wait.

Just imagine how long it'd take without prime...

 

I had several day delays, maybe up to a week back on March, I'm back down to 1 day delivery now for most items.

I'm thinking there wouldn't much difference. Would it go from 11 days to 30 days?

The inbound-shipping problem affects every retailer and etailer - including Amazon.  Atop that, Amazon is diverting ALL shipping resources to domestic Covid-19 priorities.  Read Amazon's blog - they state it there rather plainly.  Our family are Prime members; however I'm the designated chaser for shipping issues; it's why I read Amazon's blog - at minimum - weekly.

i had issues other than parts shipments responsible for my holdups - like payment.  Not the first time that happened, either.

And if Amazon had NOT done so, they would have been whacked for it,  In fact name a single retailer or etailer that is NGOT similarly hamstrung!

Hello,

I have used both eBay and Newegg to purchase computer parts online when they were not available for immediate delivery via Amazon.  If you have a store like Best Buy or Micro Center within driving distance that offers curb-side delivery (e.g., order online and pick up at store) then than might be an option for you as well.

 

Regards,

A good way to increase profits. Create shortage and increase prices for the shortfall

Even the Egg has been out of stock 😞 I called my local microcenter and they too had nothing really available and couldnt give me an eta on when stock would arrive. It's all good though, I am safe and healthy so this is just my selfish side wanting to pass time.
