According to the most recent numbers released by MindFactory, AMD, the manufacturer of the Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 and the Ryzen 3000 Zen 2, AMD, remains ahead of the pack in the Desktop CPU market. In December, 2020, the most recent numbers, which were calculated by Redditor, Ingebor, illustrated that record numbers of AMD CPUs were sold at the Germany-based retailer. With sales that equaled nearly 40,000 more CPUs than Intel sold.
If you were under the assumption that sales of AMDs Ryzen CPU couldn’t get higher, your assumption was wrong. According to MindFactory, the manufacturer sold more than 35,000 AMD Ryzen Desktop CPUs, the majority of which included parts made by Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 and Ryzen 3000 Zen 2. In other words, AMD remains the brand the German market prefers, as their Ryzen 5000 Zen 3 architecture and the Ryzen 3000 CPUs that were based on the Zen 2 architecture, sold more than 35,000 units, or around 83 percent of the total share for the amount of CPUs that were sold in December, while Intel, which struggled to sell more than 5000 of is 10th and 9Th Gen Core CPUs were able to nab an estimated 17 percent of the market share. At 86 percent and 14 percent, the split of the revenue was similar between AMD and Intel, as a result of the increased sales at AMD. Additionally, they reported their highest revenue figures, as a result of AMD CPUs, which makes up about 12 million Euros, while the revenue generated by Intel CPUs was below 2 million euros.
In regard to CPU statistics, AMDs Ryzen 3000 CPUs made up 54 percent of the total amount of CPUs that were sold, while Ryzen 5000 CPUs distributed 26 percent of their units of a total of their sales figures. Ryzen 2000 and Ryzen 3000G CPUs also acquired combined sales of 18 percent. It appears as if consumers still have interest in the Ryzen 3000 CPUs, thanks to their excellent value as per the performance proposition as compared to the new Ryzen 5000 series lineup. Furthermore, the Ryzen 3000 CPUs have been made available at lower prices for a period of time and the deals that were offered during the holidays have made the CPUs even more appealing to consumers. Meanwhile, the Ryzen 5000 CPUs also held onto strong sales compared to the competition, but in the end, the lower amount of stock did impact the final sales figures.
As per CPU results, it’s indicated that the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X has begun to acquire more traction and now has exceeded the Ryzen 5 3600 in total sales. The Ryzen 7 3700X is still a top seller, thanks to its excellent value for the 8 core and 16 thread design. The Ryzen 5 3600 holds onto the top three positions. The Ryzen 9 5950X and Ryzen 5900X did also increase sales, thanks to the greater availability. In regard to numbers, the Ryzen 7 3700X sold almost 5000 units and the Ryzen 5 5600X sold about 4500 units, whereas the Ryzen 5 3600 sold an estimated 4300 units.
Comparatively, Intel still has a lot of dated SKUs being picks up by users and neither the Core i9-10900K nor the Core i7-10700K is certainly a struggle for the Ryzen 9 5950X or the Ryzen 9 5900X in regard to the total amount of volumes sold. The Core i7-10700K only had the ability to ship 1050 units, while the Core i9-10850K sold 550 units, which is far less than half the amount that the Ryzen 9 59590X sold.
