Shopblt.com has pre-orders for the new AMD Ryzen 3 3300x available for $122.46 ($120.46+ $2 handling fee). I have purchased from them in the past have had nothing but great experiences with them. For pre-orders, they will not charge you until the product has reached their warehouse where your payment is then processed and shipped. You have until the day the product reaches their warehouse to cancel, but you will not be able to cancel within 24 hours of the original purchase time. This company's policy is that if pricing changes for any reason, they will suspend the transaction and hold the product for two days for you to decide if you want to keep the product at that price. if you do not respond, they will simply cancel the order. In my purchases here, I have not encountered a price change.

For those looking to lock in the $122.46 price, and avoid the risk of the 3300x selling out on May 21 (also price gouging as this is a really hot item), I would preorder it from Shopblt.com. This has an ETA of June 9 to reach their warehouse, so I'm assuming it will come in time for the B550 motherboard releases on June 16. ETAs are not guaranteed, but if it doesn't arrive before you've found it elsewhere, it couldn't hurt to have it pre-ordered. I have recently purchased an out of stock power supply from them, and actually arrived way sooner than the projected arrival date. Check out their site for return policies. I hope this helps people in the same situation I am in for getting my hands on this processor during this crazy time.

Question, Does this require a dedicated graphics card ?. Does this have integrated graphics?

What's the best upgrade I can do over a 1700? I'm currently running that with a 1070 and want to upgrade to a 2070 super or 2080(super) and pair it with a newer CPU.

It doesn't look like it. Usually, they'll have it pretty clear on the specs page. Also, generally the only Ryzens with integrated graphics have a G at the end, such as Ryzen 3 3200G.

It does require a dedicated graphics card. The ones with built-in graphics end in G, like the 3400G and 3200G, and previous generation 2400G and 2200G.

No integrated graphics. I think those Ryzens always have a "G" in the model #

The benefit is that you can use that extra $60 on a better GPU. $60 is the difference a 1660 ti vs 2060.

AMD Ryzen 3 3300x performance is just like the overclocked i7-6700K or i7-7700K @4.5 Ghz

i7-7700K at 4.8 Ghz ~ 5.0 Ghz is a bit better than overclocked 3300x.

These two i7 CPUs used to be $300 ish a few years ago.

There is no need to buy used 4 cores 8 threads CPU from ebay any more.

Now AMD is offering a $120 CPU for the same performance.

If you dont have the $$, then once AMD brings back the $85 1600AF, it is still the best option.
The only problem is that right now, 1600AF is sold out and 3rd prarty dealers are jacking up the price to $150 ish.
This reduced the value of 1600AF.
So, Ryzen 3 3100 and 3300x come to save the day.

Ryzen 5 3600 is a great CPU but the price difference between $170 and $120 is $50 which is enough for a cheap B350/B450/X370/X470 motherboard.

Now AMD has a price point for everything.
$50 1200AF 4C 4T
$85 1600AF 6C 12T (same as ryzen 5 2600)
$100 3100 4C 8T
$120 3300x 4C 8T
$170 3600 6C 12T
..
$720 3950x 16C 32T
