Recently, according to the latest data released by BcN, a Japanese statistics company, Ryzen notebook in the Japanese market has made rapid progress, has accounted for a quarter of the Japanese market share! As of December 23, 2019, Ryzen notebookshipments were up to 24.3% (Intel’s 75.4%), in other words, one for every four notebooks sold in Japan.
By contrast, Japan’s Ryzen notebook shipments were just 1.2% at the start of 2019, while Intel’s notebook shipments accounted for 98.9%, largely dominating the notebook market, but Intel’s share fell over the next 12 months to 75.4% today.
However, Intel still has a big advantage over Ryzen, which has an average price of 149,000 yen (about 9345 yuan) for an Intel notebook, while ryzen’s notebook costs 121,000 yen (about 7,589 yuan). The difference between the two is as high as 28,000 yen (about 1,756 yuan).
As for Ryzen’s surge, it’s partly due to Intel’s year-round shortage, and partly because of ryzen APU’s soaring price-performance. If Intel can’t completely address the out-of-stock problem, by the time the Ryzen 7 4800U goes on sale, AMD will surely eat into the growing notebook market share.
