AMD has enjoyed great success with 82% of sales at Mindfactory

Over the last few months, AMD has enjoyed not only complete engineering success, but it has also been able to reach out over Intel in many areas both in terms of single-core performance and to take a clear advantage on the multi-core front.

The Zen 2 architecture alias Ryzen 3000 also has a positive impact on sales figures and reputation.

Europeans prefer the combination with AMD CPUs

In a recent survey, the European Hardware Association (EHA) concluded that AMD processors are now more popular in Europe than Intel processors.

In the first half of 2018, about 40 percent of respondents still preferred the combination of AMD CPU plus Nvidia or integrated graphics unit.

Of more than 10,000 respondents, the majority would currently opt for a combination with the AMD CPU. From more than 10,000 respondents, most would currently opt for a combination with the AMD CPU.

By mid-2009, AMD had already claimed 50 percent, and now even 60 percent voted for a configuration with a Ryzen processor. The study also shows a positive development of AMD’s graphics card division.

While a clear majority of European hardware enthusiasts are still interested in Nvidia’s Geforce GPUs (72.8 percent), the price of the Radeon RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT increased by four percentage points to 23 percent compared to May 2019 (19 percent).

82 percent of the processors sold by Mindfactory are AMD CPUs

The sales figures for AMD processors in the German online shop Mindfactory are even clearer than in the EHA study.

Although AMD has dominated this market since the launch of Ryzen 3000 last July, in the latest graph published by Ingebor publisher, AMD has sold a whopping 82 percent of the processors, representing 77 percent of the total turnover of Mindfactory’s CPU segment.

Since the Ryzen 9 3950X, as well as the Threadripper 3960X and 3970X have just been released and the Intel mainstream and HEDT (high-end desktop) processors are under pressure again, the development is still exciting.

However, AMD might have difficulties here due to the low availability of (desktop) processors with a high number of cores, which already affected the Ryzen 9 3900X a few months ago when it was released, so the Intel Core i-10000 models for the HEDT 2066 socket are not currently available either.
