In a nutshell: Alder Lake solely launched on November 4, however Intel’s Twelfth-gen processors are already proving extremely popular with customers, serving to improve Chipzilla’s market share. Nonetheless, crew blue stays within the shadow of dominant AMD, whose chips made up 70% of all CPU gross sales in Germany throughout November.

The info comes from Germany’s largest retailer, MindFactory, and was posted by Redditor ingebor. We see that Intel has lastly reached a 30% share of a gross sales market that AMD has managed for the reason that launch of the Ryzen 3000 sequence. Coincidentally, the figures are the opposite means round within the Steam survey: AMD’s processors are present in 30% of contributors’ PCs, a determine it solely lately handed.

Alder Lake was Intel’s most profitable era final month, making up 37% of the corporate’s gross sales. It was adopted by Rocket Lake (34%) and Comet Lake (28%).

However the general market was a pink one. Vermeer (Ryzen 5000 sequence) CPUs have been the preferred chips by far, with a 48% share of all gross sales. AMD’s different top-selling generations have been Cezanne (11%) and Matisse (10%).

particular person chips, the Ryzen 7 5800X was prime of the record with 4,820 items. The Ryzen 5 5600X was second (3,570), adopted by the Ryzen 9 5900X (1,620). Intel’s best-selling chip was the Core i7-12700K in seventh spot with 880 gross sales.

Each firms bought extra CPUs in November than October—a very dismal month. The leap was possible helped by Black Friday and Cyber Monday. However what’s attention-grabbing is gross sales throughout the identical interval a 12 months earlier. Over 40,000 processors have been bought in November 2020, whereas final month noticed simply over 20,000 gross sales. The YoY decline is doubtlessly as a result of Ryzen 5000 launch in October 2020 and other people upgrading their PCs within the futile hope of grabbing new graphics playing cards.

We will count on Alder Lake to maintain chipping away at AMD’s share of the gross sales market, however issues might rapidly change when the Ryzen 6000 sequence launches subsequent 12 months.
