AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors can be purchased through vending machines in Japan
In recent years, AMD Ryzen series processors have achieved great success in the Japanese DIY market. In fact, after AMD released the first generation of Ryzen series processors, its influence in the DIY market is still limited. However, with the launch of the Zen 2 architecture Ryzen 3000 series processors, AMD has taken away a large amount of DIY market share from Intel and has gradually replaced competitors that have occupied a leading market position for more than a decade. In the era of Ryzen 5000 series processors, AMD has more than 60% of the market share.
If you have been to Japan, you will probably be impressed by the vending machines everywhere. In addition to the most common beverages, there are food and various daily necessities. The vending machines have already penetrated into the daily life of Japanese people. According to a tweet posted by Twitter user @Nullpo_x3100, at present, there are vending machines selling AMD Ryzen series processors in Japan, and the packaging shows that they are mainly Ryzen 5 5600X processors. This is currently AMD’s leading product in the mainstream market.
Of course, people who are curious try to buy coins through these vending machines and find that the processor inside is not AMD Ryzen 5000 series. As you can see from this video, consumers can choose one of the boxes for 1,000 yen, which contains one or more old Intel and AMD processors, such as Ryzen 1000/2000 series products.
