Once again AMD has enjoyed healthy sales in regard to information taken from sales data from Mindfactory. Leading the charge for Team Red is the Ryzen 5 3600 and Ryzen 7 3700X, followed by seven more processors from AMD. However, overall share of CPU sales shifted slightly in Intel’s favor, although AMD still commands 84.36%.

The interesting and potentially representative weekly CPU sales data from Mindfactory has revealed just how AMD is managing to retain considerable strength in this particular sector. Sales of the Ryzen 5 3600 are still strong, with 1,220 units sold. The performance-level Matisse chip, the Ryzen 7 3700X, has also done well, with 620 products shifted. The nearest Intel competitor is once more the Core i7-9700K, which managed just 140 sales.

However, the overall data is ever so slightly better for Intel, as the report states that 100 more Intel parts were sold over the previous week, while AMD’s total figure dropped by five units. But AMD’s share is still powerful at 84.36% and continues to demonstrate the public’s fondness for the Ryzen range, especially the Ryzen 3000 series.

It’s not just mainstream or entry-level processors that are grabbing sales for AMD. The 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X still resides near the top of the pile in the CPU sales data, thanks to 250 sales. No less than five Ryzen 3000 series chips can be found above the Coffee Lake processor from Intel: Ryzen 5 3600, Ryzen 7 3700X, Ryzen 3 3200G, Ryzen 9 3900X, and Ryzen 5 3600X. With 4,180 chips sold over the week for AMD and just 775 for Intel, it makes you wonder what Team Blue can do to stop the rot.
