AMD Ryzen and EPYC processors conquer the market


AMD Ryzen and EPYC processors continue to gain momentum in the PC market, with market share increasing across all three segments (desktops, laptops, and servers). Data provided by Mercury Research shows that AMD gained +0.4% QoQ, resulting in a market share of 28.1% this quarter. This brings AMD’s current share to an all-time high compared to Intel, which is currently at 71.9% but has been declining since AMD launched its Zen CPU architecture. Compared to last year, AMD achieved a jump of +11.2 points (compared to the second quarter of 2021), despite a significant slowdown in the PC market this year.

In terms of market share in specific segments, AMD’s Server & Mobile division performed well, with the Mobile segment leading with a +2.3 point share, which currently stands at 24.8% versus Intel’s 75.2%. As expected, the Ryzen 6000 “Rembrandt” and the Zen 3/Zen 2 line of upgrades have been very positive for laptops. In the server segment, AMD increased its share by 2.3 points, which now stands at 13.9%, compared to Intel’s giant share of 86.1%. While Mercury Research bases its market share on single and dual socket platforms, a recent report from The Next Platform showed that EPYC processors outperformed Opteron chips and surpassed the historic 26% market share established by these chips for over a decade. EPYC’s server share is expected to remain strong in the coming quarters, given that the company itself has confirmed that there is already strong demand for its next-generation chips.
