Ryzen 7000 processor sales data is not such good news for the month of December. Retailer Mindfactory frequently publishes data on its store CPU sales, which provides insight into how sales in the category are performing in the region.
Ryzen 5000 sales outperform Ryzen 7000 by 5x in December
According to the data shared, Ryzen 7000 CPUs accounted for only 15% of AMD Ryzen sales in December. This is despite price cuts of around 20% for the series. Despite the cut, the numbers don’t seem to be moving the way the company expects, although we should see a lot more movement in January when the Ryzen 7000 non-X processors hit the market.
It was also revealed that AMD and Intel CPU sales fell in December, although they are still up from the summer figures.
Ryzen 5000 is the best-selling series, and Ryzen 5800X3D is the most popular
The Ryzen 5000 (Zen 3) series is AMD’s best-selling series, accounting for 71% of sales, followed by Ryzen 7000 processors at 15% of total sales and Ryzen 5000G APUs at 13%.
On the Intel side, Raptor Lake processors account for 46% of total sales and Alder Lake processors account for 43%.
Mindfactory’s top three best-selling processors in December are Ryzen 7 5800X3D, 5600X, and 5800X. The Core i5-12400F takes fourth place and the Ryzen 7 5700X takes fifth place.
Both AMD and Intel have their 65-watt TDPs to launch, so the January and February numbers will be crucial.
