AMD's Milestone in X86 CPU Market

AMD Reaches Record-High Share in X86 CPU Market

According to the latest report from Mercury Research, AMD has achieved a significant milestone by capturing a record-high share of the X86 CPU market in the first quarter of 2024. This marks a major advancement for the chipmaker in its ongoing competition against Intel's dominance in the computer processor space.

The surge in market share was driven by strong demand for AMD's Ryzen and EPYC processors in both consumer and enterprise markets. The Ryzen lineup's attractive price-to-performance ratio has resonated with gamers, content creators, and businesses looking for cost-effective computing power without compromising capabilities. AMD's market share increased to 23.9% from the previous quarter, where it held a 19.8% share in Q4 of 2023.

AMD has also made significant progress in the data center segment with its EPYC server CPUs. The company's ability to provide powerful yet affordable processors has allowed cloud providers and enterprises to expand their operations on AMD's platform. Leading tech companies have adopted EPYC, contributing to AMD's growing presence in the server market. Currently, AMD holds a 23.6% share, a substantial increase from just over 10% in 2020.

While AMD faced some competition from Intel in the mobile PC market due to the Meteor Lake ramp, it managed to gain a small percentage of the client PC market share. As AMD looks ahead to the second half of 2024, there is anticipation around whether the company can maintain its momentum and potentially capture a larger portion of the x86 CPU market from Intel in the upcoming quarters.
