AMD rode surging demand for its datacenter silicon and a healthy appetite for Ryzen notebooks to a solid end to its second quarter of the year, which saw it hit more than $6 billion in sales.
“Our work over the last several years has placed AMD on a significant growth trajectory,” CEO Lisa Su said on Tuesday’s Q2 2022 earnings call with analysts. "AMD has never been stronger, and the markets for our products have never been as large or diverse." According to her, this is AMD's "eighth straight quarter of record revenue," though revenue and non-GAAP EPS were pretty much in line with Wall Street's expectations. Also during the call we learned that the 5nm Zen 4 Ryzen 7000 desktop processor line is set to launch this quarter, and the 5nm Zen 4 Epyc server processors code-named Genoa will ramp up in the second-half of this year into 2023. That would mark the official introduction of this latest CPU architecture.
Top-end RDNA 3 graphics chips are also set to launch this year. The biz, which relies on TSMC to manufacture its silicon, is still experiencing some supply crunch issues but sees fab capacity opening up.
AMD's financial figures are in stark contrast to Intel’s disastrous second quarter, which saw revenues slide 22 percent and a $454 million net loss that it blamed on adverse market conditions, including ongoing supply chain challenges and lower-than-expected demand.
