New sales data from Mindfactory has revealed the continued success story that is AMD Ryzen. The top 13 places are occupied by Ryzen CPUs, with the evergreen Ryzen 5 3600 still selling by the truckload. With the Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 series launching soon, and rumors of a Ryzen 5 5600 for next year, Team Red will likely go from strength to strength.

The latest CPU sales data from Mindfactory has been shared online, and the information from the German tech retailer gives an interesting idea of how the processor market is generally performing. As always the trusty budget workhorse Ryzen 5 3600 tops the tables with an impressive 1,390 units sold. However, it’s not just mainstream CPUs that perform well in terms of sales for AMD, as the second-placed Ryzen 7 3700X proves with 780 parts sold.

As mentioned above, AMD processors take up the first 13 places in the sales chart, leaving the Intel Core i9-9900K to lead the Team Blue parts with 100 sales. This is not a new story in regard to the contrasting successes AMD and Intel have with sales at Mindfactory, but it is likely to get even more disparate once the Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 series is released, which is scheduled for November 5. The Vermeer desktop processors are already creating headlines, with the mainstream Ryzen 5 5600X looking like an incredible price-performance prospect for a start.

It seems difficult to see what could possibly topple the older Ryzen 5 3600 from its firm position at the top of the CPU sales chart though, unless rumors of an upcoming and affordable Zen 3 Ryzen 5 5600 CPU are accurate. Of course, it also appears likely that AMD will at some point reduce the prices of the aging Zen 2 Matisse processors, making them even more attractive to desktop PC tinkerers after the best value for their buck/Euro. It could end up being an extremely difficult mission for Intel’s 2021 Rocket Lake family to take off against the stellar Ryzen 5000 competition.
