AMD gains further market share in the CPU field

Mercury Research recently released data for the first quarter of 2022, which showed a significant contraction of the CPU market, apart from the IoT and SoC segment, with a substantial decrease of 30% for desktop PCs.

According to Mercury's Dean McCarron, Intel suffered the most as it ran out of excess CPU stocks it had produced over the past few months. AMD has not only managed to conquer new shares of the desktop market, but also of the notebook market, where it has reached 22.5%, and that of servers (11.6%).

Despite the downturn, the market has recorded several records, including all-time highs for server processor revenue, units and IoT / semi revenue -custom and a new record for the average selling prices of the combined client CPUs (desktop and notebook).

Decreasing shipments of low-priced entry-level CPUs and strong acceleration of new mobile processors (Alder Lake CPUs for Intel and Barcelo and Rembrandt CPU cores for AMD) have resulted in much more mobile CPU prices high, helping to set the record average selling prices of client CPUs (combining desktops and notebooks) of $ 138. in the world of consumer computers (and beyond), McDarron said:

Our estimate of the share of ARM PCs (including Chromebooks and Apple's M1-based Macs) is 11.3%, in increase from 10.3% last quarter and just double from 5.9% a year ago. Although Apple's Mac sector declined in the first quarter, the decline was slight compared to the X86 PC market.
