The latest market share and revenue report for AMD Ryzen and Intel Core processors are in from Mindfactory (via Ingebor) and it looks like the red team has got a major win on their hands. Based on the figures from Germany's biggest retail outlet, the report shows that AMD while consistently topping Intel for an entire year has now surpassed them with an unimaginable and record share.
AMD Ryzen CPU Share Highest In A Year, Ryzen 3000 CPUs Completely Demolish Intel's Core Lineup, Ryzen 7 3700X Most Popular CPU Followed By Ryzen 5 2600 and Ryzen 5 3600
It has been almost a month since the Ryzen 3000 series processors launched. The processors hit the market on 7th of July and so only 23 days have passed since their arrival on retail shelves yet Intel's worst nightmare has come true. AMD not only crushed their rival with a market share of 79 percent but the recorded figure was also the highest in a year for the red team. Intel, on the other hand, managed the smallest market share in over a year at just 21%.
Running down the sales figures in details, AMD's recorded share of CPU sold at 79% was even bigger than the first generation Ryzen and second-generation Ryzen launch. Of the AMD Ryzen 3000 series CPUs sold, the Ryzen 7 3700X was the most popular and the chip alone sold almost as much as Intel's entire Core lineup. The Ryzen 5 3600 and Ryzen 5 2600 followed up and the reason was due to the incredible value that the 6 core chips offer plus the amazing discounts on the Ryzen 5 2600, putting the chip under the $150 US range.
The Ryzen 9 3900X sold higher quantities than Intel's flagship Core i9-9900K since it offers more cores and multi-tasking performance than the 9th Gen Intel offering. The Ryzen 7 3800X was the least popular Ryzen 3000 series part but that's to be expected since you're getting almost the same amount of performance on the 8 core Ryzen 7 3700X for a much better price point.
When it comes to revenue from the sales, AMD managed to grab the most share at 75% while Intel had a 25% share in July. The most revenue came from Ryzen 7 3700X because it also sold the most quantities while Ryzen 9 3900X came out second. While the Ryzen 9 3900X didn't sell as much as the Ryzen 7 3700X, it does cost a higher $499 US price tag which reported for higher revenue. The AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs are also facing minor shortages in select regions due to their immense popularity, however, the average sales price of AMD CPUs has seen an increase of a whopping 50% during the launch month which is impressive.
Lastly, we can see the share split between Intel's and AMD's lineup. 50% of the AMD CPUs sold were Mattise or Ryzen 3000 series based, 32% were Pinnacle Ridge-based, 5% were Summit Ridge-based while the remaining 3% were Threadripper HEDT CPUs and APUs. Intel's share included 70 percent Coffee Lake Refresh or 9th Gen CPUs, 27% Coffee Lake or 8th Gen CPUs, and the rest of the 3% were Skylake-X and Kaby Lake 7th Gen CPUs.
In the end, all I want to say is that this news is absolutely fantastic for AMD and it shows that more consumers are replacing Intel CPUs with newer Ryzen processors that offer better features and a lot more multitasking performance while delivering single-core performance on par with the rival Intel chips. AMD has completely demolished Intel and with the Ryzen 3000 victory, Intel is more or less 'Outside' of the leaders camp.
