AMD burst into the market with their new Ryzen Desktop Processors lineup over an year ago taking it completely by storm. The effects still keep rippling across from their sales. The company gained market share in the x86-cpu sector in the third quarter of this year and already controls 13 percent of it.
The company boasts an average of 10.6 percent share over the server , desktop and notebook sectors. The manufacturer leads in the desktop PC market where the market share increased from 12.2 to 13.0 percent. It was still 10.9 percent in the third quarter of 2017.
The share of notebook processors has also seen an increase with AMD in it with 10.9 percent of the cases in the past quarter. The growth to the previous quarter is therefore 2.1 percentage points, compared to the previous year, AMD even increases the share by 4.1 percentage points. The growth can be largely attributed to the rising popularity of Ryzen chips due to their bang for buck selling point over the more expensive Intel chips.
