AMD has been making steady progress since it introduced its Ryzen series, and we have seen them slowly climb up the CPU share ladder. Now, we have some numbers on how much AMD’s progress has actually affected their share in the CPU market.
A new report about CPU market shares was just published by Mercury Research. During Q2, 2020 AMD hit an overall 18.3% share in x86 CPU market shares. This includes desktop, mobility, and server CPU market shares. This is the highest it has been since Q4 2013. AMD has also hit its all-time high figures for mobile chipsets at 19.9%, thanks to Ryzen-based laptops gaining popularity, especially the new 4000-series Renoir chip-based models.
The mobility chip market share jumped from 17.1% to 19.9% from Q1, and apparently there is even more demand for the new Renoir chips. The desktop sector jumped from 18.6% to 19.2%, and the server CPU share going from 5.1% to 5.8% from Q1 to Q2.
Of course, Intel’s delays on 7nm are not going to help the giant, as AMD keeps on inching closer. Will we see AMD go for a majority share anytime soon? What do you think? Talk to us in the comments, down below!
