AMD’s Ryzen 3000 series processors, spearheaded by the Ryzen 7 3700X, have led what looks like an unprecedented assault on Intel’s CPUs, at least going by the figures from one component retailer. The latest stats from German retailer Mindfactory (as highlighted on Reddit) for the month of July show that AMD sold an incredible 79% of all processor units, compared to 21% for Intel.
Another illuminating aspect here is that Ryzen 3rd-gen has made more of an impact than either of its preceding generations, and that shows AMD is definitely heading in the right direction (if you needed any further indication aside from the glowing reviews for Ryzen 3000).
Fact is we need strong competition in this market to ensure compatibility (with software) and good prices. AMD includes a lot more features in its base CPUs and also better value. Yes, Intel will still respond with new offerings but AMD is looking good and I'm going to seriously be considering one when my Core i7 needs to be replaced in future.
