AMD has consolidated its CPU market share in Korea, accounting for one of every two processors sold. Ryzen chips now control over 49% of the CPU market across the island country. Data from Dawana Research shows that AMD gained ~10 points share in the first three quarters of 2023. Intel, on the other hand, has seen its share drop from 59% in Q1 to 50.75% at the end of Q3 2023.
Like the Western markets, the Ryzen 7 7800X3D is a top-seller, accounting for 21.5% of AMD’s CPU share in Korea. In Q1, the Ryzen 5 5600, 5600X, and 5600G dominated DIY sales. In the final month of Q3, the momentum shifted in favor of the Ryzen 7000 lineup.
The Ryzen 5 7500F was the most popular chip, followed by the Ryzen 7 7800X3D and the R7 7600, accounting for 38%, 21.5%, and 18.7% of AMD’s overall market share. Market trends shouldn’t change much through the holiday season as processor prices remain on the lower side. Both chipmakers are expected to launch their next-gen offerings next year, first AMD’s Ryzen 8000 lineup and then Intel’s Arrow Lake-S family.
