    AMD’s CPU Share in Germany Ryzes to 69%; Intel Down to 32%

    AMD is strengthening its grip over the German CPU market with a consistent lead over Intel for the past six to seven months. These figures come from Mindfactory, the largest retailer in the country, and provide an approximate measure of the chips sold in the region. At present, AMD is standing strong with control over 69% of the German CPU market while Intel has slumped down to 32% from a mighty 60% in March last year.

    The Ryzen R5 2600 is responsible for most of AMD’s sales, forming almost 30% of the market share. The hex-core CPU is followed by the R7 2700X and the R5 2600X, each with around 20% of team red’s spoils. Looking at Intel’s performance, once again the 9th gen i7 and i9 chips make up for the bulk of the company’s profits.

    Comparing the revenue earned by the two CPU vendors, despite lower sales, the overall profits were marginally better for Intel. In November last year, team blue got 44% of the total CPU revenue, while in March 2019, this figure was slightly higher at 46%. Accordingly, AMD’s overall profits were down by 2%, compared to the last quarter of 2018.

    This can be attributed to Intel’s significantly higher average sales price for their most sold CPUs. On an average, the sales price for Intel chips is much higher than AMD’s with the former selling most of their processors for 337.12 Euros which is almost twice as much compared to the latter’s 178 per chip. The sky-high price of the 10-core i9-9900K and the Coffee Lake based i7 processors are responsible for Intel’s high mean. On AMD’s side, the R7 2700X priced at 312 Euros brought in a lot of cash, but the mid-range 2600 (149 Euros) is still by far the most sold chip.

    There’s one interesting conclusion that can be drawn from these statistics. Mindfactory’s Q4-2018 figures and the present figures are identical. However, if you trace the trends through the course of early 2019, you can see that Intel put up a bit of a fight, reducing AMD’s share to 64% in Feb, but that figure jumped back up to the November high of 69% last month.

    Looking at the future, things can only get better for AMD with the 7nm Zen2 based Ryzen 3000 lineup scheduled for a June launch. Intel doesn’t have anything for the mainstream consumer market this year, and team blue’s fans will have to wait another year for the 10nm Icelake processors to become a reality.
