AMD has recently launched their 3rd Generation of Ryzen processors and Radeon 5700 series GPUs, With this launch, AMD is slowly but steadily gaining market share in the PC Gaming Segment. As soon as Ryzen 3000 series CPUs were available to the consumers, AMD’s sales have seen a huge increment from 28.24% to all the way up to 48.72% and later it increased to 53.36% compared to Intel’s 46.64%.
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X accounts for more than 10% of the total CPU sales with the Ryzen 5 3600 and 2600 following closely behind. Whereas Intel Core i5-9400 is still on the lead with 14.55% of total sales, Intel’s line-up has had an overall decline in sales, with the flagship i9-9900K only accounting for 3.85% of it.
This increment in AMD’s sales has their 3rd generation of Ryzen processors to thank for. These processors offer similar performance to the Intel’s Core i7 and Core i9 processors while also costing less than their counterparts apart from the Ryzen 9 3900X which is priced similarly to the Intel Core i9 9900K and it outperforms the i9 by a mile in Multi-Threaded workloads while performing similarly in the Single-Threaded workloads.
Moreover, AMD has also been gaining ground on NVIDIA at the same time, with an increase from 13.6% to 15.9% over the past quarter while NVIDIA’s shares have fallen from 18.4% to 16.3% over the past fiscal year.
AMD now also has market shares higher than Intel in major Asian markets, according to research done by Danawa Research. With AMD having more products for desktops, notebooks and servers lined up for the future and Intel being stuck on the 14nm process, AMD only looks more poised to gain further market share.
