I'm this close to ordering a Ryzen CPU but waiting to see what prices will be like post 3xxx XT release. Supposedly they release tomorrow but there's been no news at all. But I suppose it's to be expected for a lackluster refresh (but still relevant to a new buyer).

Fabs are working fine. The problem is demand caused by COVID. Currently most regions are seeing approx 30% or higher growth Y/Y. Since no one in tech keeps 30% excess inventory and the fabs are at full capacity, there will be stock outs.
Also not expecting any price drops given the demand. If anything, I would suspect Intel to drop i5 to compete against Renoir and because they will have 11th gen sometime next year. But that's just my educated guess.
AMD is also struggling to keep up to demand.
