Matisse paints a beautiful picture for Zen 2 and Ryzen 3000 as AMD claims 91% of Mindfactory's CPU sales for April
AMD has now reached a point that its processors are selling at a rate of over 10 to 1 compared to Intel in Mindfactory’s sales data. The information revealed by this large German retailer offers a reasonable indication of how the CPU market is performing overall, and it seems to say that the Ryzen 3000 series has been a smash-hit success with customers. Four charts detailing the changes from March 2019 to April 2020 have been shared, and it all looks rosy for AMD.
The main focus is on the number of CPUs sold, as this plainly shows how Intel’s figures have dipped over the last 12 months, to the point that April reveals 91% of AMD CPUs compared to 9% of Team Blue’s processors sold. As always, it appears to be the Matisse processor Ryzen 5 3600 that leads the way while the more performance-oriented Ryzen 7 3700X continues to attract fans. The revenue chart tells a similar story, and it also neatly points out the higher average prices of Intel parts, as although AMD claimed 93% of sales the revenue share figure for Team Red stands at a lower 86%.
Interestingly, one of the charts (see below) depicts the most popular CPUs by architecture for April, and this is obviously led by Matisse processors. Based on 7nm technology and Zen 2 microarchitecture, the Ryzen 3000 series has been immensely popular, which is demonstrated by the 66% of total sales claimed (73% when just incorporating AMD parts). Intel’s most popular architecture is the Coffee Lake Refresh generation, which manages just 8% of the total sales but claims a whopping 91% of Team Blue’s individual sales, headed by the powerful but still expensive Intel Core i7-9700K.
