Intel 13th Gen vs. AMD Ryzen 7000 Launch Week Sales: Ryzen 7 5800X3D Sales More than Double [MF Germany]

Intel’s 13th Gen desktop launch has been well-received by critics across every niche. However, consumers continue to remain on the fence when it comes to jumping platforms. At Mindfactory Germany, the Raptor Lake processors failed to sell as much as their Ryzen 7000 rivals during their launch week. The hybrid core CPUs sold 110 units less than their Zen 4 counterparts at Germany’s largest DIY retailer.

The demand for the Ryzen 7000 lineup has declined sharply post a healthy launch week, and it’ll be interesting to see if Intel’s new offerings follow the same curve. AMD sold roughly the same number of Raphael processors last week as the week before. Meanwhile, the older Ryzen 5000 CPUs dominated the DIY market, led by the Ryzen 7 5800X3D.

The Zen 3D V-Cache part sold over a thousand units last week, twice as much as the second and third-ranked Ryzen 7 5800X and 5600, respectively. The octa-core gaming CPU sold 1,020 units, thrice as much as the entire Zen 4 lineup and roughly 40% more than Raptor Lake. Intel’s ASP grew by a hefty margin (to $384.6), nearly a whole $100 more than AMD’s, but the latter still pulled in more revenue.
