Intel beats AMD on German motherboard sales

by on22 February 2022

First time in years

German retailer Mindfactory said that Intel’s motherboard revenue has passed AMD’s for the first time in years.

Chipzilla is still lagging when it comes to the total number of units sold, but it does show that it might be starting to return to form.

Mindfactory’s data showed Intel motherboards generated €234,656 while AMD variants managed €208,236. (Kicking) Pat Gelsinger’s outfit made more than half Mindfactory’s total mobo sales money, and Lisa Su's company gained a 47 per cent.

Germany has long been a stronghold for AMD, especially since the launch of its Zen architecture so this means that things might be swinging the other way.

AMD sold more units than Intel, it was just that they were cheaper. Customers bought 1,590 AM4 motherboards that week, while the total number of LGA1151, LGA1200, and LGA1700 boards sold was 1,350 units.

Consumer LGA 1700 (Z690) boards arrived in November alongside the Alder Lake processors. Moreover, the mainstream Alder Lake chips and H670, B660, and H610 boards only launched in January.

Intel’s average selling price for Intel boards in week 7 was €173, while AMD motherboards' was €131.
