Things are starting to look good for AMD, with the company achieving sales numbers that surpass their Intel competition at retail for the first time in over a decade at the German retailer Mindfactory.de, one of the largest retailers of PC components in the EU. 
 
In the month of August, 56.1% of the CPUs sold at the company were from AMD, with 43.9% being from Intel. AMD's most popular Ryzen CPUs are their R5 1600 and R7 1700, both of which offer high levels of overclocking headroom and huge core counts for their respective prices. Intel on the other had still see their i7 7700K as their most popular product, accounting for a huge portion of their total sales. 
 
There are a lot of factors that have contributed to Ryzen's success over the past few months, from improved performance and memory compatibility through newer BIOS iterations, to newly released in both ultra-high-end and budget-oriented price points with their Ryzen 3 and Ryzen Threadripper series CPUs. 
 
This data showcases a lot of consumer confidence in Ryzen, though it will be the coming months that will be the true test for AMD's Ryzen architecture as Intel releases their 8th generation of Core CPUs on the desktop market. Will AMD be able to maintain this lead as Coffee Lake hits store shelves?

While this is all great news for AMD, it is worth noting that the company has yet to release dedicated mobile Ryzen CPUs, leaving Intel as a dominant force within the mobile market. While AMD has found success with their Ryzen CPU architecture on the desktop, the mobile/laptop market will be the testing ground that will allow AMD to get mindshare amongst regular consumers, with their Ryzen/Vega powered Ryzen mobile series offerings their strongest and most efficient APU to date. 

It must also be remembered that this data is only from a single large retailer, so it is unknown if this success has been replicated globally, even so, it is great news for AMD to find this kind of success anywhere, especially given the situation that they were in just one short year ago.

indeed that´s good news for AMD.

thought some shops sell the 1900x for too much here in germany (~660 euro at amazon marketplace).
for 660 euro it makes no sense to buy the 1900x when you can get the 1920x for ~780 euro.

mindfactoy has a more reasonable price (539 euro).

i think 499 euro would be a great price, compared to the 1800x.

for me saving 230 euro made no sense so i bought the 1920x.
and i am very happy with my decision.Quote

Yup one of the best CPUs in history tbh. Well, for price/perf/not getting botty ripped on the motherboard. It will definitely be a legend, especially as the prices seem to be dropping too. I think if Intel release their new 6 core @ over £300 it will just help AMD to sell even more of them.Quote

Except to the 4.5ghz or go home people, but in general, yeah amd would be outselling easily if intel goes above 300.Quote
