Intel’s 13th Gen processors have a lofty performance lead over their Ryzen 7000 rivals in gaming workloads, and the retail market is having a great time with them. The Core i9-13900K has climbed to the third spot on Newegg’s bestselling chart, beating the Ryzen 5 5600X and the i7-12700K. AMD’s Ryzen 9 7950X is the most popular Zen 4 SKU, holding the seventh spot, followed by the Core i7-13700K at #11 and the 7700X at #14.
On Amazon, the Core i5-13600K is the 4th bestselling CPU, right behind the Ryzen 5 5600X, 5800X, and 5900X. The Core i7-13700K and 13600KF come in at the 9th and 10th spots, respectively, overtaking the 12700K and 12400F in the process. Finally, the Core i7-13700KF is sandwiched between the 12700K, 10700K, and the Ryzen 7 5800X3D.
Mindfactory provides an exciting sample space. The German market has long favored the Ryzen family of processors, but the Raptor Lake-S launch has started to skew it in Intel’s favor. The 13th Gen Core i7-13700K, i5-13600K, 13600KF, and the 13700KF are all well ahead of the entire Ryzen 7000 lineup, selling close to 700 units overall. The Ryzen 7000 offerings don’t even break the 300-unit mark, selling half as many.
