After returning to the high-performance CPU market with 14nm sharp dragon in 2017, amd has made a turnaround in x86 CPU, and its market share has increased steadily. Last year, the market share in Western Europe doubled, but most PC companies still prefer intel core processor to sharp dragon.
Context, a market research company, recently released a report on the CPU market in Western Europe in Q4 2019. The total shipments of laptops, desktops and workstations in the region reached 6.348 million, up 5.8% year on year.
Intel processor PC product shipments fell 2.3% to 5.34 million units.
In the commercial PC market, Intel processors shipped 3.568 million units, up 15.2% year-on-year, but its market share fell from 94.8% to 89.3%.
In the consumer PC market, shipments fell 2.3% to 2.153 million units, while Intel processor PC shipments fell 14.8% to 77.5% from 87.1%.
Analysts said that there are some factors related to the shortage of Intel CPU, which is more serious in low-end consumer products. Of course, there are also competition factors for AMD to launch new products.
As for AMD, in Western Europe,PC shipments based on AMD processors reached 932000 units, up 100.6% year on year, and AMD's market share increased from 7.7% to 14.7%。
In the CEE region, AMD processor PC sales increased by 45.7% to 328000 units, and AMD market share increased to 17% from the previous 11.5%.
Specifically, the commercial PC of AMD processor increased by 200.6% to 341000 units, the consumer PC increased by 68.2%, and the shipment reached 592000 units.
in general,AMD's sales volume in Western Europe and central and Eastern Europe increased significantly, and its share in Western Europe directly doubled whether it was a consumer PC or a commercial PCHowever, the share of 14.7% is still small compared with Intel's share of more than 85%.
Analysts mikako Kitagawa said CIO CIOs of major companies still prefer Intel's core processor to AMD's sharp dragon processor,The former dominates the B2B product portfolio of Lenovo, Dell, HP and other large PC companies.
According to mikako Kitagawa,There is no technical problem for large and medium-sized enterprises to switch to AMD processor, but this process, especially for large companies with a large number of PCs, will take a lot of time to switch to AMD platform。
In a word, amd has made great progress in the CPU market, but many of the remaining problems can not be solved by product performance or cost performance, which takes time.
