AMD's share of the x86-compatible processor market increased to 21.7% over the year%
The source claims that AMD processors in general are now considered superior to Intel processors, especially after the Ryzen 5000 series on the Zen 3 architecture appeared on the market. However, the superiority in performance, energy efficiency and other technical parameters is not enough to take the market. It should be accompanied by accessibility. AMD orders the production of crystals from TSMC, depending on the capabilities of the contract manufacturer. In addition, the entire range is tied to the now very popular 7-nanometer process technology. As a result, consumers faced a shortage of AMD products. According to the source, this leads to the fact that some buyers choose Intel products because of their greater availability.

The source confirms this reasoning with data from the Mercury Research report for the fourth quarter. The report shows that AMD has lost a portion of the market compared to the third quarter. In the desktop processor segment, AMD's share decreased from 20.1% to 19.3%, and in the mobile segment-from 20.1% to 19.1%.

Thanks to the increase in the average selling price, AMD's revenue increased by 50% year-on-year. During this time, the market for x86-compatible processors grew by 20.1% over the year. And while AMD actually delivers more products than in previous years, the company has not been able to take full advantage of the market growth. Its share, if you count all the processors at once — desktop, mobile and server, for the quarter decreased slightly, and in annual terms increased from 15.5% to 21.7%.
