Los datos extraídos dan para mucho, para un análisis muy exhaustivo de parámetros como la venta por arquitectura o la evolución del precio, pero sin duda muestran que la tendencia en cuanto a los precios ha cambiado, lo cual es curioso de la manera que afecta a the sales.
Intel and AMD CPU sales in 2021: everything that goes up must come down
It is no coincidence that CPU sales were on the rise in the months of November and December of last year, mainly due to the Christmas period, but it is also true that the trend was initially on the downside then seemed to stabilize.
Today and since the pandemic broke, it is very different and shows a sharp drop in sales, especially in the last two months. Just over 15,000 units are sold at the largest German dealer, which is a sign of concern.
With all of this, AMD is making more than double Intel’s sales with its Ryzen 5000, leaving a percentage that changed last month: 76% vs. 24%. Intel has recouped its share and it looks like the new 11 Series is appealing to consumers, as its sales rose 6%, which is the best of last year.
Another trend is nothing more than the fact that AMD is no longer a “cheap” brand in processors and now rivals or surpasses Intel.
The price of AMD processors increases by more than 50% and Intel reduces them
If we look at the revenue percentages, AMD gets a 81% of these, while Intel currently keeps 19%, so and with the previous data in hand, we can see that it not only corresponds to a greater number of processors sold, but that they are also more expensive than that of his rival.
This is easily reflected if we choose the price table, where last year AMD made its processors more expensive for the same range a 50.1%while Intel had the opposite fate and lowered its prices by -23.3% in all. The most priced processors are the i9-10900K and i7-10700K because they have substitutes.
As a processor that has gotten cheaper we have the i9-9900K with a -39.3% of its price, being today the option with the best performance / price ratio on the gaming market. In number of units sold, the Ryzen 5 5600X took the win with 3240 units
In fact, the top 5 is AMD. Intel has to settle for sixth place for the i7-11700K and eighth for the i5-10400F with only 430 units sold. This data only reflects what everyone thinks: since 2019, Intel has lost market share and is in free fall, while AMD has grown and positioned itself as the leading brand, leaving aside the theme of the “cheap brand” or the “popular brand”, since now their prices are higher, as happened with the AMD 64 at the time.
The trend seems to choose to turn the tide, slight yes, but the number of CPUs has dropped at AMD, revenues follow the same path and Intel seems to be recovering. We’ll see in the coming months how the two fare.
