AMD is kicking all sorts of ass right now, so much so that I'm sure Lisa Su is changing her shoes a few times a day -- and especially so in major Asian markets where AMD has crossed the 50% market share line.
Danawa is one of the largest retailers in South Korea with its internal firm Danawa Research seeing AMD Ryzen CPUs overtake Intel Core CPU market share in the last few days, with the surge across 50% thanks to Zen 2 chips launching on 7/7. The most popular CPU was the Core i5-9400F followed closely by the new Ryzen 7 3700X, while the Ryzen 5 3600X had slightly less, and the high-end Ryzen 9 3900X being surprisingly popular with more sold than the Core i5-9600K for July 6-11.
Then we have some data from BCN Ranking which uses data from major outlets in Japan that AMD has crossed the milestone 50.5% market share, Intel has fallen from grace in Japan where it did dominate in October 2018 with 72.1% and is now sitting at just 49.5% in July 2019.
