Ryzen 5 3600 chip cleaning Intel's clock

Looks like it is the segment King

Leaked CPU sales data from German retailer Mindfactory has shown a dominance for AMD over Intel in at least one market segment.

According to the figures, AMD has an 86.11 per cent lead to Intel's to 13.89 per cent. The Ryzen 5 3600 chip was the bestseller for the week with 1,280 units sold, while the top-performing Intel processor was the Core i7-9700K, which only managed 100 sales.

The figures were spotted by Notebookcheck which said the Zen 2 Ryzen 5 3600 processor that reigns supreme and while Chipzilla is still the biggest player in the global CPU market,  it’s clear to see that Ryzen 3000 has made impressive business for AMD, with several Matisse family processors appearing in this particular sales data.

The overall sales unit figure for the week was 4,185 for AMD and 675 for Intel, and with Comet Lake not coming across as particularly impressive so far, AMD could really shake up the established order with its Ryzen 4000 products.
