AMD's Ryzen 5000 processors helped the company reach new heights in processor sales according to the latest figures from MindFactory
According to sales figures from
European distributor MindFactory
AMD has just won a landscape victory in the German market with retailer MindFactory. MindFactory's sales breakdown, which provides monthly updates of sales statistics, shows that they sold 35,000 Ryzen 5000 and Ryzen 3000 processors (and a scattering of second-generation chips), while Intel handled just over 5,000 sales in November. The detailed figures were released by Reddit Ingebor user, and show the importance of the demand for AMD's Ryzen processors compared to Intel's offerings.
Ryzen 5000 is the name of the new generation of processors from the American OEM AMD. It comprises four processors (Ryzen 9 5950X, Ryzen 9 5900X, Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 5 5600X) that support up to sixteen cores, with the key element being the core design. Indeed, the Ryzen 5000 chips are the company's first to feature the next-generation Zen 3 architecture and represent the biggest leap for AMD desktop processors to date. With the performance of its new processors, AMD aims to become the leading supplier of processors for video games.
Sales of the Ryzen 5000 "Zen 3" and Ryzen 3000 "Zen 2" have exploded.
Barely a month after their release, AMD's Ryzen 5000 processors helped the company reach new heights in processor sales, at least according to the latest figures from European retailer MindFactory. AMD once again took the lion's share of the processor market in terms of sales, with an 84 percent share of the total number of units transferred and revenue (with Intel at 16 percent in both cases).
Indeed, graphs show that AMD's Ryzen 5000 "Zen 3" and Ryzen 3000 "Zen 2" passed the 35,000 unit sales milestone, while Intel barely passed the 5,000 unit sales milestone in November at Germany's largest retailer MindFactory. This represents 84% of the total share for the number of CPUs sold in November, while Intel, which barely sold more than 5,000 of its 10th and 9th generation CPUs, managed to capture 16% of the shares. The revenue split between AMD and Intel is also similar, at 84% and 16%, due to AMD's increased sales.
Maintaining its leading position in the German market, AMD Ryzen processors based on the Zen 3 and Zen 2 architecture decimated all previous records set by Ryzen processors. November saw a huge increase in sales not only for AMD, but also for Intel, with both announcing their highest sales figures for 2020. Thus, revenues generated by AMD through the sale of its processors totaled €10 million, while Intel's processors managed just under €2 million.
People are still interested in the AMD Ryzen 3000 and Ryzen 2000 chips.
Turning to processor statistics, AMD's Ryzen 3000 processors accounted for 67% of total processor sales, while Ryzen 5000 processors accounted for 16% of total sales. The Ryzen 2000 and Ryzen 3000G processors also recorded combined sales of 17%. Looking at these figures, it seems that people are still interested in Ryzen 3000 processors because of their cost/performance ratio compared to the new line of processors unveiled in November, the Ryzen 5000.
Thus, the Ryzen 5 3600 has maintained its popularity with more than 5000 CPU sales. This is almost as many as all Intel processor sales combined for the month of November. The Ryzen 5 3600XT, surprisingly, is the 2nd best processor in terms of sales figures, with more than 4600 units sold. It is followed by the 3700X, which also surpassed the 4600 units sold. The Ryzen 5 5600X sold more than 3000 units, the Ryzen 9 5900X sold more than 1500 units and the Ryzen 7 5800X sold more than 1100 units.
The Ryzen 7 3800XT also sold over 2300 units, which is surprising given that the Ryzen 3000XT series did not offer the same cost/performance ratio as the non-XT chips. However, this could be due to the fact that AMD had partially eliminated its non-XT processors and replaced them with XT parts, so users opted for a processor with a better offering than the XT family. Even the Ryzen 7 2700X sold more than Intel's Core i7-10700K, with more than 1800 units compared to 1270 units for Intel's SKU.
Intel's Core i9-10850K sold only 550 units, which is much less due to lower inventory and the fact that the Ryzen 9 5900X and 3900X offer a much better price/performance ratio in this segment. Finally, leaving MindFactory graphics aside and taking a quick tour of the global processor market, analysts believe that AMD is rapidly gaining ground in the major markets. AMD's share of the Steam Hardware Survey has risen dramatically to 26.5 percent.
Intel continues to lead with a 73.49 percent market share, but at the rate it is declining, industry analysts predict that AMD will have approximately 50 percent market share by early 2022, which will make Intel break out in a cold sweat.
