Black Friday has long ceased to be just “Black Friday”, but it is now a period of offers that extends from Monday of the same week (and sometimes even earlier with the excuse of pre-Black Friday). The point is that right now it’s common for sales of all kinds of hardware to skyrocket, and the same has been true with AMD ever since, according to sales statistics from MindFactory, a German wholesaler from which we take as a reference the sales volume. At European level, AMD has sold more processors than ever before and is once again taking a huge advantage over Intel.
Sales of AMD and Intel processors during Black Friday
This week ( and just one week) AMD sold a total of 12,215 processors, while Intel sold 2,040 units. This means that AMD has obtained a 85.69% market share
In addition, it is curious that normally AMD, despite its higher sales, generates a lower profit margin because on average its processors were cheaper, but things have changed this week and it seems that users have decided to go for high-end AMD processors. and therefore more expensive. Thus, the revenues for this week amount to 2,995,155 dollars for AMD processors for 563,430 dollars with Intel. If we take an average, it turns out that AMD processors cost 245.2 dollars on average, while those from Intel cost an average of 276.19 dollars.
It should be noted that a total of 12,205 AM4 socket processors, 1,530 Intel LGA1200 socket processors, 490 LGA1151 socket processors, 20 LGA2066 socket processors and only 10 AMD Threadripper TR4 socket processors were sold.
AMD monopolizes the top 10 best-selling processors
Here is the statistic MindFactory published regarding processors sold during the week:
|AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT||2290|
|AMD Ryzen 7 3700X||1820|
|AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT||1450|
|AMD Ryzen 5 3600||880|
|AMD Ryzen 9 3900X||810|
|AMD Ryzen 7 3800X||780|
|AMD Ryzen 7 2700X||640|
|AMD Ryzen 5 2600||590|
|AMD Ryzen 9 3900XT||590|
|AMD Ryzen 5 3500X||510|
|AMD Ryzen 5 2600X||490|
|AMD Ryzen 5 5600X||480|
|Intel Core i5 10400F||290|
|Intel Core i7 10700K||190|
|Intel Core i9 10850K||160|
|Intel Core i7-10700K (Avengers Edition)||150|
|AMD Ryzen 5 3600X||140|
|Intel Core i7 9700K||130|
|Intel Core i7 10600K||120|
|Intel Core i5 10400||120|
The first curious fact about this statistic is that for the first time in a long time, the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 is not the best-selling processor, but users have gone for other more powerful options during this week, as the Ryzen 5 3600XT Mainly, with 2,290 units sold, as well as the Ryzen 7 3700X and 3800XT. The price reduction during Black Friday resulted in the pricing of high-end processors over previous lines, which of course allowed users to take advantage of the situation to buy a better processor for the same price.
The first Intel processor to appear in statistics is the Core i5-10400F with only 290 units sold, and it is followed by Core i7-10700K (190 units sold) and Core i9-10850K (160 units sold) and is that as you can see the top 10 selling processors are all from AMD, and Intel is in trouble again.
