AMD is now selling more CPUs than Intel in the land of the rising sun. Figures from BCN Retail show that Intel’s sales have dropped from 72.1% to 49.5% since October. AMD’s shares did the opposite, growing to 50.5%.

Ryzen’s glowing reputation may be one factor, but BCN’s report suggests that Intel’s loss should be blamed on supply issues. The company is planning new manufacturing facilities to keep up with demand, but the market obviously couldn’t wait.
