AMD Locks Down the Entire Top 15 in Processor Search Engine Requests!
Mike Sanders / 2 months ago
Since the release of the original Ryzen series in 2017, AMD has been making massive strides in winning people over (and in some cases, back to) the Red side of the processor fence. Yes, admittedly, Intel still has the overall market fairly well secured with a circa 65-70% market share (depending on your source),. Overall though, I would think it would be fair to say that in terms of general consumer interest, there are probably a lot more people curious about AMD than Intel. Specifically, those currently with an Intel CPU who might be considering making the move to AMD.
Is this just a general theory though? Well, following a report via WCCFTech, apparently not. Following research conducted on search engine requests, it seems that Ryzen processors are getting checked out online in vastly significant numbers when compared to Intel. In fact, AMD doesn’t just have the top 10 locked down completely, but Intel doesn’t even appear until we go down to the 16th position!
AMD Smashes Intel in Processor Search Engine Requests!
Topping the list we see the Ryzen 5600X which is not overly surprising given that this has been one of the best bang for your buck CPUs ever since its release back in 2020. In fact, as I write this, I have a 5600X happily running away in the background on my own system (currently at 31C with an air cooler just in case you were curious). – In terms of Intel, however, as noted above, they don’t even appear on the list until 16th place with the Intel I9 12900K and then again in 17th with the Intel I5 12400F.
And, unlike AMD who seem to have a bit of a mixed bag of CPU performance in these search engine requests, it is undoubtedly curious that what we see from Intel (as their most ‘popular’ models) is one of their most potent processors followed up by one of their best value for money models.
Are people making a move to AMD, therefore? Well, overall, not really. Yes, AMD is winning more business (circa 3-5% over the last year), but at the same time, we’re certainly not seeing any kind of mass exodus from Intel either.
What we can ascertain from this data, however, is that a significantly higher number of people are exceptionally more interested in AMD than Intel right now and while we’re not seeing the transitional figures tally up just yet, it’ll be interesting to see if this is a precursor for continued, substantial, and consistent growth for AMD over 2023.
