AMD processors continue to increase their share of the server market: reached 16% in 2021Q2

AMD has made a lot of efforts in the server market in the past two years, and its 64-core top EPYC processor has won the favor of many server manufacturers. In order to meet the needs of the market, AMD gives priority to EPYC series CPUs. After all, the server market has higher profits. According to a report by the semiconductor research organization Omdia, in the server market, AMD processors have reached the highest market share in many years, reaching 16%.

In the second quarter of 2021, the global server market shipments will be about 3.4 million units, which is the same as the second quarter of 2020. Server manufacturers have a total revenue of $21.5 billion. It is estimated that the global server market sales will reach $92 billion in 2021, an increase of 11%. Among the servers currently shipped, the proportion of servers for artificial intelligence has increased significantly. The shortage of server power supply components also affected the shipments of server products and increased prices. Intel has lost part of its share in the server market. In addition to being occupied by AMD, servers based on the ARM architecture continue to improve. Among them, Ampere’s CPU, Fujitsu, and Huawei’s Arm-based CPUs are the most successful.

Omdia said that cloud service providers have always been Intel’s stronghold, but AMD has become more attractive recently. For example, Google is purchasing EPYC processors on a large scale, which has prompted AMD to increase its market share.
