We are always looking forward to the latest sales figures from the German eTailer Mindfactory, which release the individual processor’s sales number, which is then compiled by the enthusiast (in this case, Redditor ingebor). With its dynamics from earlier months, AMD has kicked his ass to put it easy.
Although we did not cover the Mindfactory sales number for October, AMD is 45 percent of its total processor sales in June, 50 percent in July and reached slightly ahead with 51 percent in August. In September, AMD took a lead management with 65 percent of Mindfactory’s total sales of processors. The numbers for November show that AMD’s happiness is still being carried by, as the proportion rose to 69 percent. In other words, AMD outselling Intel 2: 1
Closer to the figures, Pinnacle Ridge-based processors responded to 68 percent of all AMD processors sold, followed by Summit Ridge’s 17 percent. On the Intel side, Coffee Lake took 71 percent of sales, followed by Coffee Lake Refresh of 21 percent. Individually, the three biggest sales processors were AMD Ryzen 5 2600, Ryzen 7 2700X and Intel Core i7-8700K
Another key figure that we can remove from the compilation compiled by ingebor is that AMD surpassed Intel when it applies to revenue share. AMD processors accounted for 56 percent of revenues, compared to only 44 percent for Intel. These figures, however, suggest a much lower average selling price (ASP) for AMD parts, as AMD processors more than doubled the unit’s sales of Intel processor for the entire month. So, while Intel can be pummeled with regard to sales, the situation does not look so gloomy as to how much money is generated per CPU sold.
With that said, we suggest taking some time to look at the charts above, as they give a very detailed look at how the current CPU market is falling – at least through Mindfactory eyes.
Looking forward to 2019, AMD will release a new wave of the Ryzen 3000 series processor based on the 7nm Zen 2 architecture, while Intel is rumored to increase the number of kernels – again – on its core core processors. The Comet Lake-S family of 14nm ++ processors is expected to peak at 10 kernels (20 threads).
