Intel has no chance: AMD Ryzen processors dominate the market

AMD just can’t be stopped right now. While Intel is struggling with serious problems during development and the company’s shares have plunged into the abyss, the rival is enjoying numerous successes. When selling classic desktop chips, you seem to continue to depend on your competitor, as new sales figures show.

Processor sales: AMD dominates Amazon’s charts

The online retailer Amazon is one of the best-selling hardware shops. The Reddit user Ingebor publishes the company’s current processor sales figures at regular intervals and likes to compare Intel and AMD.

The corresponding figures were also evaluated again in August. The result: 84 percent of the processors sold bear the AMD coat of arms. In contrast, only 16 percent of buyers opted for a model from Intel in the summer month. AMD sells more than five times the amount of chips compared to its rival via the German mail-order company. Above all, the current Ryzen 300 processors with the code name “Matisse” make up the core business. 82 percent of all AMD Ryzen processors sold belong to the current generation.

At Intel it looks very different. Only 43 percent of the chips sold by Team Blau belong to the new Comet Lake generation, while 50 percent prefer the older Coffee Lake Refresh range.

CPU bestseller: These chips sell best on Amazon

Ingeborg’s overview not only provides information about the distribution between AMD and Intel but also shows which chips were particularly in demand in August 2020. Here are the first 10 places in the overview, including the number of items sold:

Placement + processorNumber of units sold
Place 10: Intel Core i9-9900K500
Place 9: Intel Core i7-10700K670
Place 8: AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT770
Place 7: AMD Ryzen 7 2700X800
Place 6: AMD Ryzen 7 3800X880
Place 5: AMD Ryzen 5 3400G900
Place 4: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X1.640
Place 3: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X1.930
Place 2: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X4.310
Place 1: AMD Ryzen 5 36006.160

Even the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X were more popular at Amazon in August than the current chips from Intel – this result speaks volumes. However, it remains to be seen how the numbers shift when AMD launches its new processors in early October. By then at the latest, many potential customers should wait for the new generation of chips to go on sale. In the fight, Intel vs. AMD will continue to be exciting.

  1. You get a lot of bang for your buck and while AMD is a better value, Intel is the superior processor. It’s like saying Timex is dominating Rolex in sales. I mean yea, Timex will sell more units but Rolex is a better watch.

  2. 99% of business computers have Intel and 95% of servers. Intel’s sales are much higher. It’s a matter of months for amd to return to his eternal second place

  3. Yeah sure …use an AMD fanboy garage sales numbers to try to demonstrate that a company that makes 8 billion a year is dominating Intel that makes the same money every 6 weeks
