Sure, Amazon’s “Best-Sellers” list isn’t a yardstick that one would use to quantitatively measure performance or product superiority, but it does give us a gist regarding an average customer’s mindset or satisfaction level. New statistics show that the recently-launched AMD Ryzen 9 3600X currently sits 2nd on Amazon’s list amongst the other thirdgeneration processors in the top 10 spots.

So what’s all this hoopla for you ask? Well, for starters, the 3900X (a part of the Matisse series) was made available only on July 7th (just a few days ago) and already ranks seventh on the list. The 3900x is every geek’s wet dream with 12 cores and 24 threads backed up by a whopping 70MB of L3 cache! Surely these specs have left most enthusiasts in quite a tizzy and we here at Techquila certainly don’t blame them.

AMD processors currently dominate the best-seller list by occupying 7 out the possible 10 slots. The Ryzen 5 2600 maintains an unmatched first place despite the launch of the 3rd generation of Ryzen silicon. Ryzen’s secondgeneration 6 core-12 thread configurations (that handle both work and play with equal vigor) seem to be gaining some extra traction with customers thanks in part to the discounted 140 USD price tag, another perk we can thank the 3000 series for.

The i7- 9700K was a more balanced option that many customers preferred.

Intel’s Core i7-9700K fell to a respectable 3rd place and still seems to be a popular median option for hardware buyers. For the uninitiated, the 9700K is the first i7 chip without hyper-threading. Around the time of launch, it was considered quite a risky gamble for Intel to make, but it looks like their hedged bets paid off because this silicon maintains the lead amongst the three Intel SoCs on the Top-10 list.

The Ryzen 3000 series is obviously fresh off the block and it will definitely take time for us to establish decree with respect to its superiority.
