AMD CPU Sales Grow by Over 50% at Puget Systems in Less than 2 Years

As per details provided by professional workstation builder, Puget Systems, AMD’s sales at the SI have grown by over 50% in just over a year and a half. Going back to 2017, Team Red had been completely eradicated by Intel’s robust offerings, with a full 100% share. With the launch of the Ryzen processors in late 2017, AMD started making small yet steady gains, reaching the 10% mark by 2019.


However, it wasn’t until the launch of the Zen 2 based Ryzen 3000 and the 2nd Gen Threadripper HEDT CPUs that AMD was back in the game. Starting in the third quarter of 2019, the 7nm processors were rapidly adopted by AN increasing number of customers on account of the higher core/thread count at virtually every price point. Considering that Puget serves Content Creators, Engineering Labs, and Scientists, Intel’s advantage in gaming workloads was largely irrelevant and resulted in AMD overtaking its competitor by the end of 2020.

Although largely successful, it was a classic example of too many people trying out multiple different things but getting nothing done. Left in late 2019 and been working on Hardware Times ever since.
