We all know that AMD has been killing it in the DIY space lately with the Ryzen CPUs pummelling Intel on all fronts. However, to get a clearer idea of how the two arch-rivals compare in the consumer space, we headed over to check Amazon’s best-sellers. Out of the 10 top-selling CPUs, 8 are from AMD’s 2nd and 3rd Gen Ryzen product stack.
The pack is led by the Ryzen 7 2700X which is selling for just $159, down from its launch price of $329. At this price, it’s an absolute steal. It may not be the best CPU for gaming, but it’s a fantastic chip for content creators and everyday work routines. The Ryzen 5 3600 for its unbeatable value comes in third right ahead of the Intel Core i5-9600K. This is no surprise as we recently tested the two CPU and found the former to be a much better budget chip. The Ryzen 7 3700X comes in at fifth, leading the Core i9-9900K.
The 3rd Gen Ryzen 7 offers almost the same levels of performance as the Core i9 in content creation and productivity while gamers looking for the very best still opt for the 9900K. The last four spots are occupied by the Ryzen 7 2700X, 3800X, 3600X and the 2400G.
