According to EHA Study, 60% of European PC Enthusiasts Prefer AMD CPUs

The European Hardware Association (EHA) has conducted an independent study which has revealed that AMD now ranks higher than Intel in the CPU space. According to the EHA 60% of European PC enthusiasts (in a sample of 10,000 respondents) favored AMD as their favorite manufacturer of CPUs and would choose any sort of system with an AMD CPU over and Intel one.

This is a big change from the same survey last year where AMD only held 40% of a similar sample’s preferred buying intention, and even more than the 50% shown in the same study in 2H2019. This survey also shows a slight increase in the perference for AMD’s graphics cards. In 1H2019 AMD cards had 19% preference, and now they are up to 23% in the latest study.

EHA chairman Koen Crijns had this to say about the results of the study…

“The last three years has seen AMD gain a lot of momentum in the enthusiast segment. With the Ryzen series of CPUs, AMD has eliminated any lingering performance gaps, while offering a great price/performance ratio. The surge in preference from 50% to 60% over recent months, can be explained by the launch of AMD’s latest 3rd generation Ryzen desktop CPU. Ryzen 3000 not only offers better performance under multi-threaded workloads, but also under lightly-threaded applications like PC games.”
