AMD continues to lead the charge in processor sales at Mindfactory, one of the biggest computer hardware retailers in Germany, by outpacing Intel for yet another month. Helping to achieve that feat, AMD processor sales hit a record high in September at the German retailer, since the launch of the first-gen Ryzen family. Granted, Mindfactory is but a single retailer, so the sales trends witnessed there do not necessarily translate across the board. However, as one of the largest computer hardware retailers in Germany, the data is relevant. It's also encouraging for AMD, which is finds itself competing with Intel from the top to the bottom of its product stack. AMD And Intel CPU Sales And Revenue... Read more...
For the second month in a row, sales of AMD's third-generation Ryzen processors are outpacing Intel's chips at one of the biggest computer hardware retailers in Germany. The freshly updated data bodes well for AMD's latest desktop CPUs, and if expanding the breakdown to include previous generation Zen processors, AMD holds a commanding lead over Intel at this particular retailer. The reason this kind of data matters is because AMD has fought hard to regain relevance in the higher-end desktop space. Do-it-yourself (DIY) system builders now have a wider field of processors to choose from, as both AMD and Intel have viable options spanning budget builds all the way up to high-end desktop (HEDT)...

The last time that we reported on CPU sales data from German eTailer Mindfactory (which was colorfully compiled by Ingebor), AMD's family of Ryzen 2000 processors was putting a serious hurting on Intel's long-running dominance in the field. AMD's aggressive pricing along with the overall excellent performance of Zen+ processors put the company at a competitive advantage over Intel's offerings. Here we are a few months later and AMD is continuing to eat Intel's lunch per Mindfactory sales data. AMD has steadily been increasing its market share, and even its revenue share compared to Intel, which is quite interesting to say the least. Being that these numbers are from July, this was the...

Who knows what the future holds, but for the current generation of Ryzen processors, AMD correctly surmised that it did not need to surpass Intel in IPC performance in order to offer customers a compelling a solution. It just needed to be competitive at the higher end of the spectrum. Combined with aggressive pricing, customers have responded by buying more AMD processors than Intel chips, according to data released by an online retailer in Germany. Before we go any further, caveats are in order. For one, a single online retailer in Germany is not necessarily indicative of the marketplace as a whole. It is also important to consider that the sales figures for individual CPUs mostly apply to do-it-yourself... Read more...
We always look forward to the latest sales figures that come in from German eTailer Mindfactory, which releases individual processor sales numbers which are then compiled by the enthusiast community (in this case, redditor ingebor). Building on its momentum from previous months, AMD has been kicking butt to put it lightly. Although we didn't cover Mindfactory's October sales numbers, AMD was sitting at a 45 percent share of its overall processor sales in June, was at 50 percent in July, and came out slightly ahead at 51 percent in August. In September, AMD took a commanding lead with 65 percent of Mindfactory's overall processor sales. The numbers for November show that AMD's... Read more...
We always look forward to CPU sales reports from Mindfactory, because it's not often that a retailer takes the time to breakdown sales numbers for individual processors for us all to disseminate. AMD's second-generation Ryzen 2000 series processors have been on the market for a few months now and we're starting to see how much of an impact they're having in the CPU realm. Back in May, AMD was sitting at a 47 percent share of CPU sales at Mindfactory, with Intel taking the lead at 53 percent. This time around, however, the two companies are neck and neck at 50 percent each (with a slight nod to AMD in the total number of processors sold). Looking closer at the numbers,... Read more...
