The online mail order company for consumer electronics, Mindfactory, celebrated a milestone with AMD last week in terms of Ryzen 7 5800X processors sold. The 8-core was sold 50,000 times at Mindfactory and the next 1,000 sales are already within reach.
At the end of 2020, after the two Zen 3 flagships Ryzen 9 5950X and 5900X, AMD released the Ryzen 7 5800X with eight cores and a turbo clock of 4.7 GHz. Like the 6-core Ryzen 5 5600X that was released at the same time, the Ryzen 7 5800X is also very popular with users. Because, as the online mail order company Mindfactory solemnly announced last week, 50,000 copies of the processor, which is currently quite cheap, have been sold.
AMD’s Zen 3 CPUs are popular at Mindfactory
The Ryzen 5 5600X reached this milestone earlier and has already been sold more than 56,000 times at Mindfactory. Meanwhile, the Ryzen 7 5800X is already scratching almost 51,000 units sold. The new variant with 3D V-Cache, the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, has currently been sold 1,100 via Mindfactory. However, this has only been available in stores for a little over two months.
Compared to the smaller Ryzen 7 5800X, the Ryzen 9 5950X and 5900X only sold over 11,000 and over 26,000 times respectively at Mindfactory. With the Vermeer CPUs with the X suffix, it can be roughly said that the price is the biggest selling point – the cheaper a CPU, the more often customers buy it:
(The information given here comes from Mindfactory as of June 30, 2022. The Ryzen 7 5700X and the Ryzen 7 5800X3D are excluded from this list due to their young age.)

It should also be noted that Intel processors, regardless of whether they come from the Comet, Rocket or Alder Lake architecture, do not sell nearly as often via Mindfactory as AMD’s Zen 3 CPUs listed here. It cannot be said whether this also applies to the same extent to other senders in Germany. For Mindfactory and AMD, the 50,000th sale of the Ryzen 7 5800X is of course a reason to celebrate. The Twitter account of AMD Germany meanwhile retweeted Mindfactory’s announcement and thanked the generous support.
