Ryzen 5000 makes Intel's Rocket Lake look like a paper launch in latest Mindfactory data but overall AMD CPU sales also hit new low

AMD has punished Intel in the latest set of Mindfactory sales data, with Vermeer Ryzen 5000 chips like the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 5 5600X helping make Rocket Lake look like a paper launch. However, overall CPU sales figures for Team Red have plummeted since the Zen 3 desktop chips were released.

Sales data from Mindfactory, a large German retailer, has been shared online through a set of images compiled by Redditor u/ingebor. In terms of number of CPUs sold, AMD still has a huge lead over Intel, at 82% vs. 18% in June, but this is not entirely surprising in the DIY PC builder space when Team Blue still has huge OEM contracts to rely on. However, while Ryzen 5000 appears to have maintained a relatively healthy flow of sales, it seems Rocket Lake has practically landed on the dark side of the moon.

The pink and red blocks for Vermeer chips in the bar chart below look good for AMD, especially in May when it seems likely that extra stock of high-end parts like the Ryzen 9 5900X and Ryzen 9 5950X were available to consumers. But overall sales in June look grim for Team Red, with just over 10,000 units sold compared to over 35,000 units a month in November and December when Zen 3 desktop chips were fresh out of the fab. Obviously the global chip shortage will have an effect on sales, but there’s also the price factor to take into question. Desktop PC builders just don’t want to pay out of the nose for a new processor if they have the option of waiting.

The good news for AMD is that the reduction in total Ryzen processor sales seems to have mostly affected older parts (marked as "others"), as it is clear to see that Ryzen 5000 is still much-wanted by individuals. An impressive 3,550 units of the Ryzen 5 5600X were sold in June and even the pricey Ryzen 9 5950X was still snapped up for a total of 380 units. Intel’s 11th Gen Rocket Lake CPU sales pale into comparison, with the i7-11700K being the top seller with 320 units shifted. In fact, nine out of the top 10 places in the CPU sales chart are taken up by Ryzen processors.
