    Mercury Research has released AMD CPU market shares for Q2, 2019. The numbers significantly favor AMD albeit the fact that Zen 2 processors launched in the second half of Q2. Although the 3rd Gen Ryzen processors have been selling like hotcakes, it took EPYC Rome’s combined effort to make it this far.

    AMD vs Intel: Desktop CPU Market Share

    AMD’s Q2 was flat this year, but don’t let this fool you. AMD gained 4.8% YoY, credits to the phenomenal performance by the Zen 2 chips. We will get a clearer picture in the Q3 reports since the transition from Ryzen 2000 to Ryzen 3000 chips saw the usual dip in sales. Another reason for flat sales could be the ongoing US-China trade war, which has affected almost all silicon-based companies. The same can be said for Intel apart from their supply chain issues.

    The server unit gained 0.5% share compared to the previous quarter and a respectable 2% gain Year over Year. The EPYC Rome lineup has a very little contribution to the number solely due to its launch date near the end of Q2. AMD’s recent win of the server CPU contract in major FANG company – Google makes us believe that the above number is destined to increase next quarter.

    AMD Mobile CPU Market Share

    Prior to the Ryzen 3000 APUs, AMD wasn’t really relevant in the laptop and portable PC market. with a small 1% increase this quarter, the Zen 2 chips are yet to show their magic in the low-end department. AMD has a great opportunity this quarter, owing to Intel’s low-end chip supply issue.

    The fact that the 7nm Zen 2 chips have disrupted the market would be an understatement. Once the Ryzen 3000 chips deeply penetrate the consumer market, Intel will start losing shares left and right. Furthermore, Intel’s CPU price drops haven’t come yet, making the situation even more dire for team blue. Let us know what you think of all this in the comments below.
