AMD’s client market will take a backseat in 2023 with the server and premium notebook segments getting a renewed focus. Northland is yet another analyst to echo this sentiment, stating that while CPU and GPU sales will decline, the server and console businesses will have a healthy year. There have been multiple reports in the past few dates claiming a major cessation in orders from three of TSMC’s biggest clients, namely AMD, NVIDIA, and Apple.
According to the analyst, AMD’s PC processor sales will drop by 6% year on year, including the desktop and notebook segments. Interestingly, the GPU market is expected to see a growth of 7% year-on-year in 2023. Overall, AMD will lose $675 million in sales due to reduced demand from the PC market in the coming year. Meanwhile, the AMD SoCs powering the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X console are set to witness increased sales, netting $1.140 billion in 2023.
As expected, the server and enterprise division is forecasted to grow at a steady pace. Northland estimates AMD’s server business will get a boost of 55% in revenue, breaching the $3 billion mark in 2023.
