Despite the changing stock market atmosphere that has dung over the technology sector in recent months, which has hit both Intel and AMD with particular ruthlessness, recent sales figures show that the less of the two players have not only had much better luck in November than its much larger rival, but it has actually had a story that creates and plays up a hurry.
Thanks to the incredible data transparency in Germany’s largest e-tailer, Mindfactory.de, and the incredible effort of AMD society to collect and rate the data we have had the advantage of gaining a deep insight into PC market performance every month and November was no exception.

So let’s dig right into the numbers.
For all Intel processors sold at Mindfactory.de last month, buyers bought about two AMD processors. In terms of volume during the same month, buyers bought more than sixteen thousand AMD processors via the German E-Tailer, almost twice as much compared to the same month last year and the largest volume of processors ever sold on the e-tailor

Intel sold less than half of its rival volume on just a little bit below 8000 processors that is about the same figure for company the same month last year. This indicates that the momentum shift in favor of AMD depends largely on the company’s sales, rather than a decrease in Intel’s sales.
The most sold CPU was AMD Ryzen R5 2600, followed by R7 2700X, the R5 2600X and finally the Intel Core i7 8700K secured fourth place.
When broken by revenue generated instead of devices sold, the situation improves marginally for Intel due to its significantly higher pricing. Although AMD is still commenting on the lion’s share of revenues with a record breaking 3 + million euros generated in November, the biggest ever ever recorded by Mindfactory.de even in comparison with Intel’s best performance last year in December.
Almost half of all processors sold on e-tailer last month were 2nd generation “Pinnacle Ridge” AMD Ryzen chips, which accounted for 47% of the shareholding. Secondly, Intel’s coffee lake, with just under half of 22%. Although, thanks to significantly higher pricing, Intel’s share of revenue is noticeably greater than the proportion of CPU units sold.
Overall, November was a record breaking month for the little Sunnyvale chipmaker. It was also a decent one for its much larger rival, despite the ongoing production problems. If this momentum for the red team is about, we could see even more entries broken by the end of the year.
