AMD's Ryzen 5 3600 sold almost three times as many units than all of Intel's chips put together in latest Mindfactory CPU sales data
New data for CPU sales from Mindfactory has been shared online, and it is yet another glorious week for AMD. Although this is often the case in regard to the retail sales information from this particular retailer, it is still amazing to see just how far ahead AMD is in popularity over Intel. The top seller for Team Red was the Ryzen 5 3600 with 2,030 units sold; in comparison the top seller for Intel was the Core i7-9700K with 130 sales.
What’s even more damning is that both the Ryzen 5 3600 and Ryzen 7 3700X shifted more units than Intel’s entire lineup. Team Blue amassed 740 units sold for the week, whereas the Ryzen 5 3600 managed 2,030 units and the Ryzen 7 3700X moved 1,040 units. In total, 5,890 AMD processors were sold, which is equivalent to 88.84% of the sales share. It’s an astounding result for the chipmaker.
As well as taking up the top 10 places in the sales data, AMD also has six Ryzen 3000 series chips occupying top spots. If the Mindfactory information is indicative of the CPU market as a whole, then Intel has some serious catching up to do, which will be even more difficult to accomplish when AMD's Zen 3 mainstream desktop processors start appearing on the market later this year.
