TechEpiphany has assembled and posted Mindfactory CPU sales statistics for week 33, and it makes for intriguing reading as always. AMD is clearly outperforming Intel in terms of both units sold and income generated, but this is a frequent theme in Mindfactory statistics and is to be expected in the DIY enthusiast world.
Intel has large contracts to provide OEMs and data centers with its processors, so it is unlikely to be concerned with sales statistics from a single merchant, regardless of how much Team Blue falls behind Team Red.This new information reveals a few things, including the fact that the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X has firmly established itself as a popular favorite.
The total data for both units sold and revenue show AMD success in this market. Team Red sold 2,985 chips for total revenue of €960,429 (US$1.12 million), while Team Blue sold 825 chips for total revenue of €183,949 (US$215,126). AMD now has 78.35 percent (units) and 83.93 percent (revenue) of the market, compared to Intel’s 21.65 percent (units) and 16.07 percent (revenue). While Alder Lake may make a splash in the market thanks to its unique hybrid features, Windows 11 optimizations, and promising early benchmarks, it’s safe to assume that the Zen 4 Raphael family from AMD will be eagerly awaited.
