AMD’s Server Processor Share Expected to Increase to 10% by the End of 2020

AMD’s server CPU share is expected to increase to double-figures (~10%) by the end of 2020. Prior to the Zen-based Epyc processors, the company was almost completely eliminated from the server market, with Intel maintaining complete dominance for nearly a decade. With the coming of the 7nm Zen 2-based Epyc Rome chips, the scales have begun shifting in AMD’s favor, though it’s going to be a gradual change.

The present Epyc Rome lineup features up to 64 Zen 2 cores, thanks to the scalability of the chiplet design. The AMD CPUs offer twice the performance at nearly half the price (compared to the Intel Xeon competition) with its 2S Epyc chips, and the recent launch of the F series Rome parts further solidifies it on the per-core front.

AMD is expected to launch the Zen 3 based Ryzen 400 Vermeer and Epyc Milan CPUs by the end of 2020. Many companies have already signed up to leverage the next-gen server CPUs based on the Zen 3 design, and such adoption should further increase in 2021.
