AMD Overtakes Intel in Puget Systems Processor Sales

Historically, system builders have been very good indicators of the market situation and demand for the latest processors available. Today, we have the report coming from Puget Systems, a system builder making PCs and laptops for any task needed. Having been present in the PC building business for 21 years, the company was able to notice some trends and look at the market like no one else could, simply by analyzing its orders. Today, we have the report that showcases just how much the CPU market has fluctuated and how dominant forces have shifted. The two main players, AMD and Intel, have been present for lots of years and we now get to see the latest trends in the consumer marketplace.

Back in 2015, Puget Systems quietly dropped AMD processors from their offerings, amid the very low demand the company saw for them. The sales of AMD processors accounted for a single-digit percentage of all of the total sales, and no one was interested in such systems. With the introduction of the Ryzen generation, Puget Systems re-introduced AMD processors back in their offerings. As the company analyzes its processor sales, it has concluded that, currently, AMD processors account for over 50% of the total CPU sales. That is quite a comeback for AMD, as the latest generation Ryzen 5000 series processors have taken the performance crown, and consumer demand is showing the need for new high-performance processors. You can take a look at the graph representing processor sales in the last five years below.

Good job amd, smash and wreck intel fanboys. Takes a popcorn.






Jokes aside, this took too long for them, sad. They could at least show top 5 cpu bought from AMD. I would say 4xxxG cpu are at top, but who knows...

Puget should be mainly selling workstations, so productivity performance is where they are at.
The graph tracks Ryzen releases pretty well. Zen (Ryzen 1000/2000) brought AMD back to the picture, Zen2 (Ryzen 3000) brought market share increase since second half of 2019 and Zen3 (Ryzen 5000) in the end of 2020 pushed it over 50%.

They did jump from 25 to 55% in one month, with another 5 the next

What an odd guess, I wonder why. I can only see the latest Vermeer on their site, and no APU's at all.

Watch out, guys:

3070 + 2600x is lower than 5700XT + 2600x (NV's drivers seem to consume more CPU)

Processor sales are no longer decided on who makes the best processor for any given market, they are decided by whichever brand can stay in stock the longest.

Well, it sort of confirms that what it takes to gain market share is to actually deliver a better product... Who would have thought.

Hm, no issue with Ryzen 5000 series stock in (nor with Intel's Buldozers)

That's true now, but this is historic data reflecting the last quarter and in the last couple of quarters, availability has been a massive problem for both AMD and Intel.

Well, what contributes the most here is maybe the fact that Intel got fined for its anti-competitive bad practices and that pushed them away from the idea to pay the sellers to sell only their processors.
This market share change wouldn't have happened in 2005, for example, though.

I have not seen this at all. I live in Tennessee and getting the Ryzen 5000 series has been pretty easy. The only CPUs that have been hard to get is the 5900X and 5950X. The 5600X and 5800X literally sell everyday

Well, no problem with the 5800X availability. I just go to the store and pick the one I want since those are available everywhere. It is harder with the 5600X but it's not like those are nowhere to be found. 5900X and 5950X is a different story though.

and little child think amd is the best

the more important is not the sale , is benefit and intel destroy amd

an now when amd is more expensive than intel we will see ....

intel is now offering the best entry and middle computer system : in price and option wifi 6 / usb 20 gb etc and reliability

The only CPU that's not in stock in europe is the 5950X. Prices are alright for the 5600X and 5800X.

Puget systems hoped to be bitter end to sell those overpriced Intel systems, they were the most reluctant system builders/integrators or whatever they are to use AMD.
I recall reading some benchmarks and even when AMD beat Intel they were like " we still recommend Intel for stability " seemed AMD cpu's crash or something :confused:
They are not happy to sell AMD and they are not happy with the landscape of now Apple building silicon and killing exactly the costumer they target, they still do the old trick of comparing Apple to PC in Adobe suite but not mention Final cut pro that can edit 4k on a tablet.
They had a good run in the age of unoptimized software that need it stupidly expensive Intel "workstation cpu's"
Wonder how will they spin it when Apple release Mac Pro.
