AMD Ryzen CPUs outsold Intel’s Alder Lake CPUs last month and continue to hold strong DIY market shares in Germany

The latest sales and revenue shares of AMD’s Ryzen & Intel Core CPUs from Germany’s largest tech retailer Mindfactory have been published by Ingebor on Reddit.

Intel Alder Lake CPUs are increasing market share globally, but AMD Ryzen CPUs continue to dominate the DIY segment in Germany

For the past few weeks we have reported on how the PC market is generally declining due to rising inflation. Both AMD and Intel are expected to lose desktop revenue in the coming quarter, but it looks like the German DIY segment remains a stronghold for AMD’s Ryzen CPUs, which continue to outperform Intel’s latest and greatest Alder Lake CPUs.

Looking at the sales numbers, Mindfactory reports that in June 63% of the CPUs sold came from AMD and 37% from Intel. AMD Ryzen CPUs totaled over 7,500 units while Intel CPU sales reached nearly 5,000 units. Of all AMD CPUs sold, the most popular CPUs were the Ryzen 5 5600X, the Ryzen 7 5800X, and the Ryzen 9 5950X. In fact, the Ryzen 9 5900X outsold the mainstream Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 5 5500. This is mainly due to the discounted offers the Zen 3 line has received since it’s now almost two years old.

Intel, on the other hand, saw almost all of its sales coming from the 12th Gen Alder Lake lineup. The most popular CPUs from Intel were the Core i7-12700K, Core i5-12400F and Core i5-12600K. The revenue split was also the same, with Mindfactory’s 61% of CPU revenue coming from AMD, or over $2.5 million, while Intel CPUs accounted for 39%, or just over $1 million in revenue. The declining trend in sales and turnover figures, which is reminiscent of the declining PC market mentioned above, is not difficult to recognize.

The highest earnings were achieved by the top 3 chips Ryzen 5 5600X (435,000 euros), Ryzen 7 5800X (416,000 euros) and Ryzen 9 5900X (391,000 euros). Both Intel and AMD CPU prices are on the decline, and Intel recently initiated a vendor-specific price cut that would reduce prices on certain 12th Gen Alder Lake CPUs by up to 5%. This price reduction is planned for the current month and is not included here as these figures are from the previous month.

In terms of family breakdown, both Intel and AMD have their latest Alder Lake (12th gen) and Vermeer (Ryzen 5000) CPUs accounting for 75% of sales and 83% of sales. The AMD Ryzen Threadripper and Intel Core-X HEDT lineup has completely disappeared from the chips due to the fact that DIYers haven’t gotten a new product family in over two years. AMD has announced that Threadripper 5000WX CPUs will be coming into the DIY segment, but these will be full PRO parts that users will have to spend a lot more on than they used to for the HEDT family.

Based on the report, it looks like Germany will remain AMD’s stronghold unless Intel comes up with something really really good. We’ll see if Raptor Lake can take more mainstream market share from AMD later this year, considering the red team will focus its AM4 on the mainstream and AM5 on the high-end segment.
