AMD Ryzen CPUs Outsell Intel Core CPUs in Retail Sales

The latest numbers released from MindFactory, the biggest tech retailer in Germany, further compiled by Ingebor over at Reddit shows that AMD Ryzen CPUs continue to dominate the market in competition to Intel Core CPUs. AMD sold over 10,000 CPUs within June and July, even when the overall number of units sold has fallen badly over the last few months. Whereas Intel sold less than 5000 units during the same period but the sales of Intel CPUs are increasing presently.

AMD gained the highest monthly sales share in over a year with 76% and Intel with 24%. These figures reflect a huge demand for AMD Ryzen 5 5600X, Ryzen 7 5800X, and Ryzen 9 5900X CPUs and AMD Ryzen 5 5600X alone was sold the same amount as Intel’s entire Core lineup. Coming to the revenue split, AMD retained over 80% share while Intel barely hit the 20% mark.

The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X continues to be the best-selling product and its price has fallen below MSRP at $279 US which was previously $299 US at several retailers. The Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 9 5900X also dominate the sales chart and sales of Ryzen 5 3600X, Ryzen 7 3700X and Ryzen 9 3900X are also strong due to their lower prices than MSRPs. In the case of Intel, Core i7-11700K was sold the highest followed by the i9-11900K. 

MindFactory is just one retailer, but the popularity of AMD Ryzen CPUs is surely more than the Intel Core processors. AMD Ryzen CPUs hit a 30% market share on the Steam Hardware Survey and not just Ryzen mainstream, even HEDT platforms such as Threadripper & Threadripper Pro are gaining workstation share over competing chips which is an entirely new segment win for AMD. 

One Million Zen 3 chips were shipped by the company by end of 2020 and that was with a constrained supply. These numbers aren’t for the first half of 2021 and they are far above what the company achieved in 2020. 

When looked closely, US retailers such as Newegg, Amazon, BestBuy, all of their Best Seller spots are filled in with Ryzen 5000 or Ryzen 3000 CPUs with one or no Intel Core CPU listed at all.
