There has been a recurring story over the last few days about AMD’s Ryzen CPUs ranking extremely highly on Amazon’s best-selling list of processors. Well, it’s Black Friday, and things are looking even better for red team: there isn’t a single Intel chip on the top-10 list anymore. The page is dominated by both 2nd and 3rd gen Ryzen processors (plus one MSI motherboard…), with the top seller being the Ryzen 7 2700X at $159.99.
AMD’s CPU market unit share has increased every quarter since Q2 2017—it now stands at 18 percent. And it’s not just in the consumer market where things are improving; team red has seen its share of the server market jump 2.74 percent YoY. With Intel lagging on 7nm and PCI 4.0, expect AMD to keep clawing customers away from its rival.
