AMD might not be doing that great on the stock market, but the data provided by Germany's largest e-tailer shows that this brand is actually doing great. In November, Mindfactory has sold two AMD processors for each Intel processor. The best seller was the Ryzen 5 2600, followed by the 2700X and the 2600X.

Although the data provided by a single retailer might not reflect the global processor sales accurately, the sales performance that AMD managed to reach on Germany's largest e-tailer — Mindfactory — is probably not that far from the truth either. In just a few words, the outcome of last month is the following: for each Intel processor sold, Mindfactory has shipped roughly two AMD chips.

Moving to the sales volume part, the numbers are ~16,000 AMD processors shipped in November by Mindfactory — almost twice the amount of AMD processors that the German e-tailer has managed to sell in the same period of 2017. On the other hand, Mindfactory has sold less than 8,000 Intel processors during last month. 

The first four best-selling processors were the following: AMD Ryzen 5 2600, AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, AMD Ryzen 5 2600X, and the only Intel part to make it in the top four is the Intel Core i7-8700K. In terms of revenue (via Mindfactory), AMD remains in the lead with almost 3.4 million USD, although Intel is not that far behind anymore, obviously thanks to its higher prices.

This month will be very interesting for the processor market and the global results might hold a few surprises for everyone. If you had to get a new processor as a present, what brand and model would you pick and why? Feel free to tell us in the comments section below.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
