First of all, if you look at the dynamics of the number of processors sold, then the spring of 2017 definitely gives a sharp increase in the sales volumes of the Summit Ridge family of processors, although by the end of the year the local peak was reached, and sales started to decline. The debut of 12-nm Pinnacle Ridge processors in the spring of 2018 gave a new impetus to the popularity of AMD processors, sales grew until the end of 2018. Interestingly, the sales of AMD processors fell throughout the first half of this year, and only in July they took off after the debut of 7-nm Matisse processors. In fact, the latter at their peak were more popular than the two previous generations of Ryzen processors.

By the way, the dynamics of the proceeds from the sale of AMD processors repeats the points recently voiced by the company’s financial director. Each new generation of Ryzen processors sells better than the previous in monetary terms. Another thing is that AMD processors show downtrends in terms of average selling price. This reflects the company’s current market strategy: first, more expensive models go on sale, and only then the family expands due to more affordable ones. However, it was the start of sales of the Ryzen 1000 that was characterized by the maximum values ​​of the average price. Now it has stabilized at lower levels due to the saturation of the market with Ryzen processors of different generations and different price categories. However, the July debut of the 7-nm Matisse processors still stirred up the average price curve.

It will be appropriate to add that the Intel processors of the Coffee Lake Refresh family started at the end of last year from very high marks of average prices. The notorious shortage of 14-nm products was to blame for everything, which boosted retail prices. A recent announcement of intentions to introduce the Ryzen 9 3950X in November, AMD, by and large, confirmed the existence of a shortage of its 7-nm processors. Will the AMD price dynamics follow the path shown by Intel Coffee Lake Refresh? It remains only to be patient and watch.
