An analysis from the Mercury Research team revealed that AMD has captured more than 30% of the overall processor market share in Q4 2022.

Though it’s still behind Intel, AMD’s rapid progress over the years is threatening Intel’s dominance in this space. The report also noted a fall in annual revenues for 2022 – resulting from the restricted consumer spending triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

AMD Taking Over Intel in the CPU Market

Though AMD started just a year after Intel in 1959, the company has long stayed in the dark about consumer electronics. But with revamped management and policies in recent years, AMD is rapidly taking over Intel in its own game.

As per a report from the Mercury Research team, AMD is now having a market share of 31.3% (up from 28.5% in Q4 2021) versus Intel’s 68.7% (down from 71.5%). These statistics comprise an overall market share report – compromising both server and client-side chips.

Though Intel still has the lion’s share, AMD’s recent growth must concern the blue team to make new plans for staying at the top. In recent times, AMD’s growth is mainly triggered by its EPYC and Instinct chips – which are expected to push the company’s market share to well over 30% in server chips space by this year’s end.

Well, the blue team also has a bright scope with the recent launch of Sapphire Rapids Xeon CPUs. All these would indirectly push benefits to the DRAM space too. The report also noted that last year has seen the biggest shipment decline in more than 30 years, with the overall fall standing at 34%, and the quarterly drop is around 19%.

Both companies reported losses in 2022 – with the unit shipments standing at 374 million (excluding ARM processors) and revenues at $65 billion – down by 21% and 19%, respectively. Yet the overall market revenue is still higher than the previous years (excluding 2020 and 2021).
