The German online retailer Mindfactory continues to sell AMD processors better than Intel . This is evident from slides to market shares and sales, the Reddit user Ingebor recently posted. One reason for this could be special offers in the context of AMD’s 50th anniversary.
Already in September of last year, CPU sales at Mindfactory tipped significantly toward AMD. Since then, the number of units sold by Mindfactory CPUs are constantly about two-thirds AMD (about 67%) and a third Intel (33%) – previously the two chip manufacturers were about the same.

Compared to April, AMD increased its lead over Intel by four percentage points in May (66% vs. 34%, previously 64% vs. 36%).
AMD is also ahead of sales. However, this leadership is wafer-thin and is currently only two percent – in April, both manufacturers earned the same amount.
One reason for this is the significantly higher prices of Intel’s top models i9 9900K and i7 9700K. Compared to the Ryzen 7 2700X and 2700, these are almost twice as high.
The average selling price from Intel processors is around 313.36 euros and thus about 84 percent over AMD CPUs (170.19 euros) – therefore, the sales of the two processors- Forging closer together than the pure sales figures suggest.
AMD is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and continues to offer affordable full packages of games, CPUs and GPUs.
The upcoming release of the Ryzen 3000 processors and associated price reductions on the predecessor models further boost sales and are also a reason for Mindfactory’s continued high market share.
