An anonymous reader quotes TechRadar:
AMD’s Ryzen 3000 series processors, spearheaded by the Ryzen 7 3700X, have led what looks like an unprecedented assault on Intel’s CPUs, at least going by the figures from one component retailer. The latest stats from German retailer Mindfactory (as highlighted on Reddit) for the month of July show that AMD sold an incredible 79% of all processor units, compared to 21% for Intel.
AMD’s top-selling chip was the Ryzen 7 3700X, and get this: sales of that one single processor weren’t far off equaling the sales of Intel’s entire CPU range (at around the 80% mark of what Intel flogged). In June, AMD’s overall market share was 68% at Mindfactory, so the increase to 79% represents a big jump, and the highest proportion of sales achieved by the company this year by a long way.
To put this in a plainer fashion, for every single processor sold by Intel, AMD sold four.
Ryzen 3rd-gen offerings have seemingly sold up a storm in the first couple weeks on shelves, and then slowed down, although that slippage is likely due to stock shortages rather than falling demand (the new flagship Ryzen 9 3900X chip is vanishingly thin on the ground, for example, and is therefore being flogged for extortionate prices on eBay in predictable fashion)… [W]e can throw in as many caveats as we like, but the plain truth (at least from this source) is that AMD’s doing better than ever, and grabbing a truly startling proportion of CPU market share — even with apparent stock issues providing some headwind.
