The launch of the AMD Ryzen seems to have given wings to a manufacturer that in recent years has been too much in the shadow of an imperial Intel. These new processors have changed the trend, and in the last quarter AMD’s share growth is remarkable.
This is indicated by PassMark data, according to which AMD would have grown 10.4% in market share in the processor segment for PCs and laptops. It is record growth for AMD throughout its history: the company was not this good for a decade.
Ryzen is a success for AMD
PassMark data does not reflect units sold, but “CPUs in use” that focus on the segment of desktop and laptop computers. It does not include consoles – something that would be even more interesting for AMD -, and it is based on Windows users who send the results of the tests performed with this software.
The data are therefore indicative, but are an interesting reference of that apparent change of trend for AMD, which has prepared more launches as the interesting Threadripper that will compete with the newly appeared Intel Core i9.
According to these figures AMD now has a 31% market share , when in the first quarter of 2017 that share was 20.6%. The launch of the Ryzen has been consolidated with more models in recent months, and the availability of AM4 motherboards has made this new generation of CPUs have more reach among users.
