The new ones Ryzen 7000, rather than a point of arrival, they represent a restart for AMD. As with all beginnings, this too could only be uphill, as the total change of platform, interface and memory standard has its price for both the user and the company.
The transition to this new formula was received lukewarmly by critics and enthusiasts, to the point of still being enormously at a disadvantage in terms of sales compared to the previous desktop generation, i.e. the Ryzen 5000.
To put these statistics on paper are the boys of Mindfactory, an online store that traditionally displays its data transparently. From the numbers of the online store, the comparison between the Ryzen 5 7600X and the Ryzen 5 5600X it is even merciless: less than 2,000 units sold against almost 71,000 units for the 5600X.
These data are equivalent to about 21 Ryzen 5 7600X sold per day, against the 91 of the previous generation, reflecting a four times greater popularity for the older brother, but not the goodness of the product itself: the small of the 7000 series however, it remains the best-buy of the new generation, as we also explained in our review of the Ryzen 5 7600X.
It must be said that these numbers are not entirely comparable because while they take into account the total number of days the products have been on the market, they do not reflect the same amount in the same period, i.e. post-launch for both SKUs and usually the hottest (which virtually might make the gap even wider).
Meanwhile, the price of Ryzen 7000 continues to drop dramatically, making these processors more and more interesting for users and a facing flip whether this trend will continue over time.
