Recent Mindfactory data indicates that AMD has sold 10 times as many motherboards as Intel over the last week. This aligns with previous numbers for Ryzen processors and cements their lead over a beleaguered Intel.

According to recent Mindfactory figures spotted by Tech Epiphany, 3130 AMD motherboards were sold this week by the German retailer, an astonishing ten times as many as Intel. Over the same period, 3810 AMD processors were sold, compared to a mere 485 Intel processors. Nvidia managed to stave off the red tide to a certain extent. GeForce graphic card sales, at 1570 units, were a third higher than Radeon GPU sales at 1190 units.

These figures only underscore the extent to which AMD has overturned the consumer CPU market with its Ryzen 3000 lineup. By delivering better performance - including in games - and a higher core and thread count at virtually every price point, AMD delivered a product line that consumers just could not overlook. 

While the COVID-19 pandemic throws everything into serious doubt, AMD will likely continue to make significant strides in the consumer market this year with its Ryzen 4000 desktop series. X670 motherboards are expected to arrive later this year along with the new processors. However, thanks to AMD's commitment to the AM4+ socket, owners of older motherboards-as far old as first-gen B350 parts-will be able to utilize the new CPUs.
