In the market of computer hardware, there are two distinct competitors. And while Intel is developing its own discrete graphics cards, AMD has managed to distinguish impressive sales of one of its processors: Ryzen 7 3700X buy more often than the entire line of Intel chips.
Statistics shared by the German retailer Mindfactory. According to the source, in July 79% of the implemented chips belonged to AMD and only 21% — Intel. The model with record demand was AMD Ryzen 7 3700X, which accounted for about 80% of the sales of the Intel processor line.
A month earlier, the same store announced the ratio of demand for AMD and Intel processors in the amount of 68% and 32%, respectively. In absolute terms, the sales statistics for the last months looks like this: while Intel sells one processor, buyers sweep away four AMD chips at once.
Of course, the provided statistics concerns only one retailer and maybe uncharacteristic for the entire processor market. In addition, in the near future, Intel plans to give an answer to the flagship AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, presenting a 10-core chip family Comet Lake.
There is an increase in demand for AMD chips in South Korea and Japan, where their share increased from 18% to 47% over the year. In many ways, the company owes such rapid dynamics to the Ryzen 3000 series, the demand for which exceeded all expectations.
