AMD Finally Beats Intel in Monthly CPU Revenue Sales

/ 2 years ago


AMD is making good progress

AMD has been in the spotlight lately, not just with its VEGA graphics cards, but also thanks to its Threadripper CPUs. These CPUs were designed specifically to beat Intel’s most powerful chips, and as far as sales are concerned, it looks like they managed just that. Keep in mind that AMD has been behind Intel in sales for the better part of a decade. Now, thanks to a German website named, we have specific data showing how AMD is beating Intel in sales.


The news further strengthens the idea that AMD can go toe-to-toe with Intel even at the enthusiast level. Also, it looks like Intel was not fully prepared for AMD’s return to the market, as the Threadripper 1950X performed exceptionally well. Sources indicate that this chip surpassed Intel’s counterpart by over 45%, which is quite an achievement. In March, when Ryzen came out, Advanced Micro Devices had 27.6% CPU unit share. Threadripper allowed that figure increased to nearly 49% in July, while August meant over 56% share.


AMD’s best seller is the Ryzen 5 1600

The Ryzen 5 1600 is a six-core processor that delivers quite a punch for $220. AMD’s Ryzen 7 1700, Ryzen 5 1600X and Ryzen 7 1700X came in second, third, and fourth in the sales lineup. Intel cleaned up with its i7 7700K, which is still on Amazon’s #1 best seller spot. With the launch of Coffee Lake, Intel has a good chance to make a comeback. Competition can only mean good things for consumers, as it forces companies to lower prices and provide better value. It also pushes them to create more powerful chips from generation to generation, which is always welcomed.

Who do you think will come out on top in this most recent CPU war?

    A really good showing my AMD. The Ryzen 5, 7 and Threadripper seem to be a big hit and their momentum is growing. I’m not too surprised – I recently built a Ryzen Threadripper 1950X system and it’s definitely worth it (this thing is a computing BEAST).

    Welcome back, AMD.

    This is even a bigger surprise than Ryzen’s performance.

    well it is really hard to say i think for now amd got a nice infinity fabric wich may be the secret of ryzen now will they be able to improve it and also how much the one having that answer will be able to tell the outcome of the war going on.Other thing is i think amd got thermal headroom and as not push the ryzen to hard so they have some space to make second gen appealing on other hand intel 10mm gonna probably be good since the large time they spend on it whit a big investment i still think that a small step is maybe better and since all amd plateform depend on those step may be better able to manage to increase slowly and surely.Intel as on there side the notority but also much more to lose than amd at the moment since they need to keep to come in mind of personne first if amd just make people think about there option they already win the war 😉
