Clearly, the AMD comeback continues, thanks to their effective counter-attack strategy this wave.
Steam hardware survey shows that the usage of AMD processors continues to increase significantly, and the corresponding share of Intel is decreasing. The latest data shows that AMD processors have taken 26.51% share of the Windows platform, while Intel continues to fall, having continued to fall to 73.49% in November .
With the launch of the Zen3 Raider 5000 series processors, this momentum is expected to continue into 2021.
The Steam software and hardware survey data covers not only Intel/AMD processors but also Windows/macOS/Linux operating systems. In the Linux and Windows user groups, which reflect the growth trend of general-purpose computing, AMD processors grew by 0.94% and 0.72% respectively .
In the discrete graphics market, AMD is also trying to put more competitive pressure on the new NV GeForce RTX 30 series with the Radeon RX 6000 series. In addition to gaming, the company is also looking to capture more share in industries such as content creation.
In terms of processor cores, thanks to the competition between AMD and Intel in the last year or two, the use of 6-core CPUs has increased significantly in this 1 year, and the once high-end 4-core processors will continue to shrink in 2021.
For the upcoming 2020, AMD has bucked Intel and continued to expand its market share, of which Zen3 is a great performance, and they will have even stronger products next year, such as the 5nm process Zen4, while on the contrary, Intel, 11 generation Rocket Lake processors are still using 14nm process.
The next 5nm process Zen4 arrival (Zen4 biggest suspense is the architecture and performance, taking into account Zen3 in the case of no upgrade process to achieve a 19% IPC performance improvement, Zen4 upgrade after 5nm performance more predictable.) I wonder how Intel will respond?
Not sure how Intel will respond
