AMD is Dominating the European PC Market – Record CPU Sales and Revenue Generated for October 2018

With the month of October coming to an end, sales figures and generated revenues of AMD for the month are revealed. AMD is at their best right now in the European market. Analyzing the data from the giant German retailer Mindfactory, AMD is outselling their main competitor, Intel, in CPU sales by over 42%. The figure comes from the data compiled by Redditor u/ingebor, in these beautiful infographics.

Taking a look at the number of CPUs sold, AMD is at an all-time best for the month of October 2018.  On average, in a majority of Europe, AMD CPUs are outselling Intel CPUs in a ratio of 2-to-1. This is mainly due to the high prices of Intel CPUs in EU.  Intel did decrease the prices of their CPUs, however, an i7-8700K at 450 EUR is still quite an expensive purchase, considering the similarly-performing (if not better) AMD Ryzen 2700X is selling for only 320 EUR.

Another thing to note here is that some people are still buying i5 7500s over better-performing Ryzen chips. We speculate that this is because of the brand trust. Considering AMD’s past, many people still prefer Intel over AMD, even if AMD’s chips are a better buy.

As for the revenue generated, AMD is again leading the charts. One thing to note here is that last year, around the same time, Intel was leading by a huge margin. This was due to the launch of the i7-8700K CPU. This year, AMD is ahead, with the new Ryzen CPUs.  A new release will surely help Intel a lot here.

Again, AMD is holding a majority of the market shares too. With competitively priced, high-core count CPUs, AMD is the preferred choice for many. Another key factor that contributes to AMD’s success is the platform support. AMD users can upgrade from one generation of Ryzen processors to the other without swapping out the motherboard. AMD has also fixed most of their other platform-related issues, such as BIOS and memory clock speed issues.

We can see the trend here in the average selling price. Intel’s CPUs are way too expensive right now for a lot of people in the EU. The level of performance AMD’s chips offer at such a low cost is attracting a lot of buyers, as the data suggests. With AMD’s Lisa Su appointed as the chairwomen of the Global Semiconductor Alliance,  great things are on the way for AMD.
