AMD has enjoyed a good week in terms of the sales data leaked from Mindfactory. Unsurprisingly, the popularity of the company’s Ryzen 3000 series has continued to help it keep a very strong lead over Intel in CPU sales; however, the previously stumbling Radeon RX 5000 series has enjoyed considerable uptake lately to greatly improve Team Red’s GPU share.

The CPU and GPU sales data from Mindfactory offers a snapshot of how the respective markets are looking for the major players. Recent reports have shown how consistently strong AMD is in the CPU arena, and the latest data shows no sign of that changing. The German retailer sold 5,700 AMD units compared to just 925 CPUs for Intel. Once again, the Ryzen 3000 series of chips has been grabbing most of the attention from customers.

The AMD Ryzen 5 3600 chip continues to be the outstanding seller, dwarfing all rivals with 1,900 units sold. In response, the best-selling chip from Intel is the Core i5-9600K, which sold a total of just 130 units. AMD is frequently strong in this department but has been struggling to emulate these kinds of sales in the GPU sales data. However, this week it appears the increase in news regarding the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X may have been beneficial for Team Red.

Usually, Nvidia’s numbers are out of sight for AMD. But the latest GPU sales data from Mindfactory shows 2,550 Nvidia units sold compared to 2,120 for AMD. The top 10 listed cards feature four members of the Radeon RX 5000 series climbing up, with the RX 5700 XT accounting for 810 sales, just behind Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2070 on 900 sales. With all the recent talk in the news about the power of the AMD GPUs in the PS5 and XSX, it appears desktop PC gamers want to get their hands on similar technology, even if it is “only” RDNA 1-based.
