German hardware retailer, MindFactory has announced that the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 is one of their most sold products, with over 50,000 units sold to date and counting. Germany is one of the regions where AMD’s Ryzen chips have done exceptionally well, with the vast majority of sold units being a part of the Matisse lineup. Despite that though, 50,000 is a massive figure in itself. In comparison, Intel’s best-selling product, the Core i7-9700K has sold just 15,000 units at MindFactory, less than a quarter of that figure.
AMD is preparing to launch its 4th Gen Ryzen 4000 “Vermeer” CPUs by the end of this year. The new chips are expected to feature improved single-threaded performance and higher boost clocks. The 4th Gen Ryzen desktop lineup will leverage the Zen 3 core architecture and TSMC’s 7nm enhanced node. They will reportedly retain the same AM4 socket and B450/X570 chipset as their predecessors.
