Leaked CPU sales data from Mindfactory has shown an astonishing dominance for AMD over Intel. The overall share is 86.11% to 13.89% in favor of Team Red. The Ryzen 5 3600 chip was the bestseller for the week with 1,280 units sold, while the top-performing Intel processor was the Core i7-9700K, which only managed to secure 100 sales.

Things might not be looking so rosy for AMD in the GPU market at the moment, but there is a different story to be told in the CPU market. Weekly sales information from the large German hardware/software retailer Mindfactory has revealed an incredible result for AMD, which is likely to be a good indicator of just how well the company is doing in this particular sector. The top 12 places were all taken up by Ryzen processors, with the Coffee Lake 8-core Intel Core i7-9700K being the closest rival.

A performance chip from AMD's Matisse family is one of the biggest sellers of the week, with the 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 3700X being an attractive option for users shopping for a new CPU: 550 units were sold. In fact, there is an interesting mix of Ryzen processors being snapped up by discerning customers: The aging Ryzen 5 1600 seems to be selling reasonably well and there are a few desktop processors with Vega graphics cores scoring high sales figures. Unsurprisingly, the 12-core Ryzen 9 3900X is high on the list, no doubt due to its well-known incredible price/performance ratio.

But it is the mainstream Zen 2 Ryzen 5 3600 processor that reigns supreme with 1,280 sales. Intel is still the biggest player in the global CPU market, but it’s clear to see that Ryzen 3000 has made impressive business for AMD, with several Matisse family processors appearing in this particular sales data. The overall sales unit figure for the week was 4,185 for AMD and 675 for Intel, and with Comet Lake not coming across as particularly impressive so far, AMD could really shake up the established order with its Ryzen 4000 products.
