A report by research firm Mercury Research reported that AMD's market share as of the third quarter of 2020 (July-September) was 22.4% in the x86 CPU segment. This figure is 4.1 points higher than the previous quarter and 6.3 points higher than the same period of the previous year, which is the highest level since the fourth quarter of 2007.
According to the report, AMD is also performing well in other segments, with a 20.1% share of desktop x86 CPUs excluding IoT, up 0.9 points from the previous quarter and 2.1 points from the same period last year. This segment has increased its share for the 12th consecutive quarter, with a figure of 20.1% since the fourth quarter of 2013.
In addition, the share of x86 CPUs for notebook PCs excluding IoT was 20.2%, up 0.3 points from the previous quarter and 5.5 points from the same period of the previous year. This is also the 12th consecutive quarter of increase in market share. The record high share was 19.9% in the second quarter of 2020, and the record continues to be set.
The share of AMD client x86 CPU excluding IoT is also 20.2%. The figures are 0.5 points higher than the previous quarter and 4.3 points higher than the same period last year. This is also the highest number since the second quarter of 2011.
This number is a record before the Ryzen 5000 series hit the market, and there is a view that AMD may increase its share to 25% in 2021 with the Ryzen 5000 series as a tailwind.
Meanwhile, Intel plans to release the 11th generation Core processor 'Rocket Lake' in the first quarter of 2021. 'In any case, as long as AMD and Intel compete for our hearts, the real winners are us consumers, ' said Paul Lily of news site PC Gamer.
