AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) Delivers Blow to Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) Market Share in August



The results are in for Germany's largest online retailer, Mindfactory.de (The "Newegg of Germany"), and AMD (NASDAQ:AMD), the Sunnyvale California based chip maker, delivers a solid blow to Intel's (NASDAQ:INTC) market share. In what could be the Company's biggest win in over a decade, AMD's Ryzen series of CPU's are selling like hotcakes, attracting consumers from around the globe.
Most notable, however, is that AMD has finally overtaken Intel in August.

In August, AMD's crown jewel, the Threadripper 1950X™, has been the focal point for consumers with a hankering for raw processing power. Its appeal was inevitable, considering the Threadripper 1950X™ outpaces Intel's best processor, the Core 19-7900X™, by a whopping 45%.

For the first time in years, AMD's CPU market share is up as well. This reaction is thought to be based on AMD having a genuinely competitive product in an area of the PC market that lacked competition for many years.

The Threadripper™ appears to be paying off for AMD. But let's not forget that Intel's second 14 nm process refinement is on its way, code name: Coffee Lake. Coffee Lake is shaping up to be a more formidable challenger. It remains to be seen if Intel's next entry can surpass the price-to-performance ratio of AMD's Threadripper™ series. One thing is for certain; the semiconductor industry is alive and well, thriving with competition.
