AMD CPU Share Reaches Record High of 25.6%, Driven by Strong Server, Notebook Sales

AMD achieved a record CPU market share of 25.6% by the end of 2021. Although Intel regained much of the lost market in the client segment, AMD had a strong server, enterprise, and data center portfolio, resulting in an over 10% share by the end of 2021. Ironically, the desktop market which has been Team Red’s primary home base saw Intel regaining 3 points market share, pushing the underdog to just 16% in Q4 2021 from 19% in Q4 2020.

The notebook segment was a mixed affair for AMD. The Ryzen team gained +2.6 points year on year, reaching 21.6% by the end of 2021, up from 19% in 2020 end, albeit a drop from Q3’s 22%. Intel was left with the remaining 78.4%, a drop from 81% in Q4 2020. Finally, the server business gained an impressive four percentage share, going from 7% in late 2020 to 11% in late 2021.

Overall, that brings up the figure to 25.6% for AMD, and 74.4% for Intel at the end of 2021. That’s a gain of 1% QoQ and 3.9% YoY for AMD, and inverse for Intel.
