AMD’s Ryzen 5000 processors are selling like hotcakes even after the launch of the next-gen Zen 4 lineup. Figures from Mindfactory show that Vermeer parts are nearly 7x more popular than the newly released Raphael among German buyers. In November, the Ryzen 5000 chips sold over 17K units, vastly outnumbering the Ryzen 7000 offerings seven to one.
The Ryzen 7 5800X3D featuring the 3D stacked L3 cache is, by far, the most popular SKU, accounting for roughly a fifth of all CPUs sold. The octa-core Ryzen 7 5800X and hex-core 5600X are the German retailer’s second and third most popular processors. On Intel’s side, the Core i5-12400F is the most sold part, yet half as many as the 5800X3D. The 13th Gen Core i5-13600K and the i7-13700K are the second and third most popular Intel chips, respectively.
When looking at the CPU market share purely based on revenue, the scales tip in Intel’s favor. While the Ryzen 7 5800X3D still comes out on top with a massive lead, the Core i7-13700K comes in second, and the i5-13600K comes in fourth, followed by the Ryzen 7 7700X at #5.
AMD continues to hold a majority share of the CPU market at Mindfactory, accounting for 67% and 60% of processors sold by units and revenue, respectively. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is the deciding factor, granting AMD a solid lead even after the release of the highly competitive 13th Gen Raptor Lake family.
The below graph shows that Intel is mounting a counterattack after years of dormancy, registering its highest consumer sales figures (by unit) since 2018. AMD has a competitive lineup, but its next-gen Zen 4 offerings leave much to be desired.
