AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Sold More Units Than Intel’s Entire Lineup at German Retailer [Mindfactory]

Over the past few months, Intel has been gradually regaining some of its lost CPU market share, primarily in the low-end segments. Despite this, AMD still has a commanding lead in the German market (and every other DIY space), with the Ryzen 5 5600X alone selling as much as Intel’s entire CPU lineup. Between May to July, Intel’s sales grew from a pathetic 15% to 24%, but even now the Zen 3 parts vastly outsell their 14nm rivals.

In terms of revenue, thanks to the higher profit margins of the Vermeer parts, AMD pulls in significantly higher revenue per unit than the preceding Matisse lineup. As a result of this, the chipmaker has been consistently grabbing more than 80% of the overall revenue from the German market since November last year.

Like the sales figures, the bulk of the revenue is brought in by the Zen 3 offerings, lead by the 5600X, 5900X, and 5800X. Unsurprisingly, the 5900X brings in the most revenue per unit out of all the Ryzen chips, pretty much leveling with the 5600X and 5800X despite selling significantly fewer units. Each of the Vermeer SKUs accounted for a revenue of roughly 800 thousand Euro for the month of July, while the bestselling Intel part, the Core i7-11700K brought in just 154K.

The average sales price of AMD processors has taken a large leap ever since the Zen 3 parts were launched last year. From just over 200 Euro in the first half of 2020, the average sales price of AMD CPUs has increased to 327 Euro in the second quarter of 2021, with a brief spike to 440 Euro in May. Intel’s ASPs, on the other hand, have switched places AMD, falling to under 250 Euro, from over 300 early last year.
