Intel’s Comet Lake-S CPUs do not appear to be doing too well in the market.
According to new sales data (via TechEpiphany) from German retailer Mindfactory, the top-selling 10th Gen SKU – Intel’s Core i7-10700K – saw only 50 sales last week. That’s an embarrassing sum compared to the forerunner, AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600, which sold 1710 units.

AMD: 5270 units sold, 87.25%, ASP: 209.88
Intel: 770, 12.75%, ASP: 320.27

Overall, Mindfactory managed to move 5,270 Ryzen chips but only 770 Intel processors. That’s a win of nearly 90 percent for AMD.
It’s important to note that these numbers stem from a single retailer, but Mindfactory happens to be one of Germany’s largest PC hardware vendors, which certainly doesn’t help the perception of Comet Lake-S, fueling the theory of 10th Gen Core being a flop.
Hopefully, Intel has a better turnout with its successor, Rocket Lake-S. These processors will also be built on a 14 nm manufacturing process.
