AMD Dominates Q3 2023 CPU Market Share with EPYC & Ryzen CPUs
In the recent statistics released by Mercury Research, AMD has secured a significant increase in market share in Q3 2023, signaling a big win for the company. The growth has been attributed to the popularity of the EPYC and Ryzen CPUs, with the EPYC 9004/8004 series and the Ryzen 7000 mobile lineup driving the gains.
According to Mercury Research, AMD’s overall x86 CPU market share now sits at 19.4% (volume) and 16.9% (revenue), marking an increase from the previous quarter and a significant rise from the same period last year.
In the server CPU segment, AMD saw a 5.8-point share increase compared to the previous year and a 4.7-point increase versus the previous quarter. The company’s newest 4th Gen EPYC lineup has been performing strongly, particularly among HPC and Data Center customers. Additionally, AMD has extended its 3rd Gen EPYC CPUs with increased support and warranties, as well as added new SKUs to drive even more share in the mainstream data center markets.
The mobile segment is the second biggest share gainer for AMD, with a 3.8 point share increase versus the previous year and a 2.9 point share increase over the previous quarter. The strong performance has been attributed to the latest Ryzen 7000 and increased Ryzen 6000 volume. However, the supply of Ryzen 7000 CPUs is still bottlenecked, limiting the company’s ability to gain an even larger share.
On the desktop side of things, AMD saw a 0.5 point market share increase versus the previous year and a slight decline of -0.2 points versus the previous quarter. Despite this, AMD’s Ryzen 7000 Desktop CPUs recently surpassed Intel in South Korea, and the company is expected to gain market share as reduced prices for CPUs and falling prices of hardware components such as AM5 motherboards, DDR5 memory, and SSDs are expected to attract customers and DIY builders in the coming months.
Overall, AMD seems to be performing exceptionally well across all segments, especially with its EPYC and Ryzen mobile CPUs. The company’s strong performance is expected to continue, with the unveiling of its next-gen portfolio based on the Zen 5 architecture at CES 2024. Additionally, the arrival of Zen 5 is anticipated to further revolutionize the AM5 segment, as the company plans to continue socket compatibility for the upcoming processors.
The statistics from Mercury Research highlight a significant upsurge in AMD’s market share, signifying a strong position for the company in the CPU market for Q3 2023.
