From the release of zen3 at the end of last year to the launch of the 11th generation core, the competition between AMD and Intel has become increasingly fierce, and the CPU market has been upgraded faster than before. Unfortunately, the CPU price has not fallen.
Not only did the CPU not fall in price, but the main products of the two manufacturers even faced the problem of shortage and price increase. AMD's sharp dragon 5000 Series must increase by 30-50%, and Intel's core i9 / i7 high-end series prices are also very exaggerated.
This is mainly due to the tight production capacity of the current chip market. Many raw materials are also rising in price, which is not a good thing for DIY players.
But in the long run, the competition between AMD and Intel will be more fierce, said Christopher danely, an analyst at Citibank,
On the issue of price reduction,Intel CEO Kissinger made a similar statement at the Morgan conference a few days ago, suggesting a price cut
According to the Q1 quarterly report released by the market research company, the x86 processor shares of AMD and Intel in different fields were announced. The overall share of AMD increased from 14.8% in Q1 of 2020 to 20.7%, and won one fifth of the world.
Specifically, the desktop share increased slightly from 19.2% last year to 19.3%, while the notebook processor share decreased from 19% to 18%, which was taken back by Intel by one percentage point. This may be related to AMD's CPU shortage.
However, AMD's biggest harvest is the server CPU market, which has increased from 5.1% in Q1 of 2020 to 8.9%. In Q4 of last year, AMD's server CPU share was only 7.1%, only 4.5% at the end of 2019, and only 0.8% at the end of 2017.
