AMD May Reach 30% Market Share in Q4

While it is beyond doubt AMD's Zen CPU architecture has proven to be a success for the company, there are now expectations it could reach 30% desktop market share in Q4 2018. This is partly thanks to Intel's production shortage, leading OEMs and motherboard AIB partners to increase production of AMD-based devices. It also helps the company that Intel's planned transition to its 10 nm manufacturing process has been delayed and going forward AMD will be working with TSMC for 7 nm products, including Zen2-based processors.

It is not only in the desktop market AMD is seeing gains as it is expected the company could reach 5% of the server market by the end of the year. Prior to the introduction of the Zen-based EPYC processors, Intel commanded 99% of this market. The next generation of EPYC processors, based on Zen2, should be sampling by the end of this year with volume production in 2019.
