Despite the noisy announcements, the AMD Ryzen 7000 processors did not win the hearts of players and enthusiasts. Despite the relatively high performance, these chips have been priced quite unfortunate, and another thing is that there are still no cheap motherboards with the B650 chipset. So it’s no wonder that the Raphael models still remain much less popular than their predecessors based on the Zen 3 architecture. Even despite the recent price reductions…
Models based on the Zen 3 architecture account for as much as 84% of all units sold from AMD, which means that the new Zen 4 processors sell more than five times worse than their predecessors.

On Reddit December’s list of chips sold in the German Mindfactory store has appeared, which shows us that the market slowdown is clear. AMD and Intel CPU sales have fallen over the past month, but are still higher than in the summer. The greatest emotions from the presented charts, however, are aroused by the dominance of AMD Ryzen 5000 systems. The top three most popular chips include Ryzen 7 5800X3D, Ryzen 5 5600X and Ryzen 7 5800X. It is worth noting that models based on the Zen 3 architecture (Vermeer and Cezanne) account for as much as 84% of all AMD units sold, which means that the new Raphael series processors (Zen 4) sell more than five times worse than their predecessors.
Intel increases the prices of 12th generation Core processors. Price increases for 13th generation Core chips are also inevitable
As for Intel, by far the most sought-after model is the Core i5-12400F. Interestingly, the new Raptor Lake chips already account for 46% of Intel’s total chip sales (Alder Lake accounts for 43%). Let us remember, however, that the new Ryzen 7000 models as well as the next 13th generation Core systems will debut soon. These processors will see new prices that can completely refresh the situation on the market. We must also not forget about the upcoming new motherboards. We are counting primarily on the more affordable AMD B650 platforms and the new Intel B760 boards.
