AMD CPUs Dominate Amazon Top Sellers List in US, UK and Germany

AMD's relentless CPU design and release cadence have been totally overturning the consumer mindset regarding whose CPU manufacturer they should choose to populate their builds, and it shows in the top sellers for numerous retailers. Amazon US, for example, lists only two Intel CPUs in the top ten of its CPU sales, with the 6-core/6-thread Core i5-9600K in fourth position, and the 8-core/16-thread Core i9-9900K in sixth. AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X is the top seller (not at all strange, considering the ludicrously low Black Friday sale price of $159, with the Ryzen 5 2600 in second place and the Ryzen 5 3600 in third.

In the UK, Amazon's top sellers in the CPU department count with 10 AMD entries against three from Intel, with the three top spots being taken by AMD's Ryzen 5 3600, Ryzen 7 3700X, and finally the Intel i7 9700K. Change your country to Germany, and you'll find the same distribution of top sellers, with Intel claiming only three CPUs in the top ten, but managing to snag the top seller position with the i7-9700K CPU. AMD has been increasing its market share in the CPU space for some reason, and we all know what it is - incredible performance/price and price/core ratios have given the blue team something to think about. What about you? Are you thinking of buying a new CPU this Black Friday?

Everytime I hear someone claim they wanna build a budget computer, I hear the name Ryzen.


They build better CPU than GPU I guess.

Nvidia ain't losing sleep.

8 core 16 thread CPU with cooler for $159 is impressive. Not only that, this cpu upgrade will probably be useful for an awfully long time before needing to upgraded again.

I guess this begs the question: When does the underdog cease to become the underdog? And if the underdog is no longer the underdog, then presumbly everyone should support the underdog.

It will take a half a decade of massive profits and major market share wins to even get to the half way point in comparison to Intel. AMD is no doubt the technological leader but they are far from the market leader. They are still the little guy by a MASSIVE margin.

Agree. If there's a sweet spot CPU that's the 2700X at today's price.

To bad DIY is about 16% of the CPU market.
Wake me up when OEMs will do the same.

Underdog is someone who's fighting at a significant disadvantage in relation to availabe tesources, I don't think Intel will earn that title unless things go really, really wrong for them or AMD just blows up in size and operating budget.

I don't wanna be rude, but what rock have you been living under? Yes... they make better CPU's than GPU's. Thier CPUs have been taking the enthusiast sectors by storm, man! Like, it's a really big thing! Everyone has been talking about it... since the dawn of Zen+, really. It's friggen RYZEN, man! Probably the single most hyped thing in PC building this year. And you're over here shrugging your shoulders like "I guess AMD makes good CPUs now." like this just happened yesterday. Lmao

It flip flops every few years, but I am hoping that AMD stays on top this time, technologically, and then, eventually financially and in terms of market share and revenue. In my mind, as far as anyone that cares about computers and has even basic diy knowledge of them, AMD is the undeniable MVP this year, because they took a stagnant computer market and breathed new life into it and made it exciting again.

You're getting unprecedented processing power at prices that could actually be interpreted as REASONABLE by many people. Intel would have had us paying hundreds and thousands of dollars, for years, for 4 cores here, 8 cores there, and MAYBE, once in a while, a more than 5%-10% improvement in IPC, year over year.

AMD has allowed people with the cash, to purchase, or build computers with the amount of processing power that they both need AND want, and I'm excited because that means, hopefully, some innovation and imagination going into computer software, CAD, and CAM, that we just would not have gotten with Intel's practices and roadmaps.

It's just fantastic chips and they serve purpose in almost any kind of build by now.

2x00 series still hold alot of value and performance. Attach a 360mm rad to those 2700x's and enjoy the constant (all-core) boost states up to 4.2Ghz.

Or dont spend money on watercooling but get a 3900x instead

over here, Ryzen 5 3600 is the new king of mid-range CPU. About MYR820, it's a steal. No one has ever mentioned or considered an Intel based build.

I wish OEMs would get on board too.
95% of laptops are still Intel + useless UHD graphics, often at premium pricing.

There is nothing premium about the Intel UHD experience. Half the software I use benefits from GPU acceleration, and that's ignoring the fact that UHD gaming is a such a trainwreck that you're usually better off not even bothering.
