AMD is on the rise, while Intel is in decline: AMD discloses a new record turnover and, for the first time, shows how much money you can make from gaming.

AMD surpassed its own quarterly revenue record with $6.6 billion in revenue. For the ninth time in a row, the corporation was able to report a new high. Overall, revenues are up 70% from the prior year. While many tech businesses, including competitor Intel, are failing, AMD appears to be unaffected (yet).

Dr. Lisa Su, CEO of AMD, summarizes the situation as follows: "For the eighth consecutive quarter, we delivered record sales, owing to our strong performance and expanding product portfolio. Each of our categories increased significantly year over year, led by increased sales of data center and embedded system products."

The company's operational profit dropped from $831 million to $526 million. The primary reason for this is depreciation as part of the Xilinx purchase. However, sales increased in every business sector as compared to the previous year:

  • The data center segment (e.g. Epyc CPUs) rose by 83 percent to 1.5 billion US dollars
  • The client segment (e.g. Ryzen CPUs) rose by 25 percent to 2.2 billion US dollars
  • The Gaming segment (ie Radeon GPUs) rose 32 percent to $1.7 billion
  • The embedded segment (eg Xilinx) increased by 32 percent to 1.7 billion US dollars

This quarter, in addition to the three well-known commercial zones, a separate gaming area will be established for the first time. Direct inferences may now be taken about AMD's recent performance with GPUs and console CPUs for the Playstation and Xbox.

In 2021, the company's graphics cards and console processors generated roughly USD 5.6 billion in sales and a profit of more than USD 900 million. Despite the fact that its gaming goods were still losing money in 2020.

In addition, the company anticipates substantial growth for the remainder of the year in comparison to 2021. This should be mostly driven by forthcoming 5 nm CPUs such as the Ryzen 7000 "Raphael."
