Sold Out! AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) RX Vega Graphics Cards & Ryzen Processors Already Topping Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) Best Sellers Lists

When it comes to the best performance in the semiconductor space, two major brands have been toe-to-toe since the late 60's; AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) and Intel (NASDAQ:INTC). With this month's release of the Radeon RX Vega™ GPUs and the Ryzen Threadripper™ CPUs, AMD has obtained top-dog status in the performance department. And now, if Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) best sellers lists are any indication, AMD is giving Intel and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) something to worry about.

With AMD's latest GPUs and CPUs selling like hotcakes, Intel and Nvidia are facing some tough competition this year. Nvidia is expected to respond with the launch its Volta line of GPUs in early 2018. Intel responds with its own 18-core Core i9 "Extreme" chip retailing at a whopping $1,999. The battle of the semiconductors wages on.
