Intels Raptor Lake CPUs are up in market sales, but AMDs AM4 is still dominant ...

AMD's AM5 platform has seen a significant drop in sales since Intel's Raptor Lake CPUs were on sale just over a week ago, yet AM4 remains the market leader with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D chip at the front of the pack.

Intel introduced the 13th Gen Raptor Lake CPUs last week during a launch week, and the new processors enabled the blue team to continue to dominate AMD's new AM5 CPU platform. This was partly because the new chips represented a great deal when compared to AMD's AM5 chips, which require customers to replace everything from motherboards to memory kits.

The Core i5-12400F, which sold 260 units overall, was the most popular Intel CPU at MindFactory, Germany's largest store, with a total of 250 units. The 13600K earned third position.

AMD's AM5 platform was ranked in third, much behind Intel's 1745 sold processors. The Ryzen 5 7600X, which sold 120 units, was followed by the Ryzen 7 7700X, which sold 50 units, for the most popular AM5 CPU sales.

Despite Intel and AMD's most recent platforms (LGA 1700 & AM5), the powerful AM4 platform continued to dominate the market. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D was the most popular chip on the website, with over 1000 CPU sales during the same week. Both the Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 5 5600 both sold more than 500 units, which is excellent and demonstrates that AMD and its predecessors are much better-suited for gamers and budget builders.

AMD has reduced the number of AM5 Ryzen CPUs that are powered by the Zen 4 core architecture. In order to boost AM5 sales, the company plans to release Non-X Ryzen 7000 CPUs and X3D (3D V-Cache) components in the early CES 2023.
