Intel Squeezed AMD in the CPU Market in Q4 2023 Despite Poor 14th Gen Processor Sales

AMD's CPU market share decreased to 16%, down from 19% the previous quarter but up from 13% the previous year.

The fourth quarter of 2023 was a fairly modest one for Intel. And yet, the chipmaker managed to increase its CPU market share at the cost of archrival AMD. It was a quarter where CPU shipments grew by 7% quarter-on-quarter and 22% year-on-year. Team Blue increased its share by 3 points to 84%, up from 81% in Q3 but down from 87% in the same quarter the year before.

AMD’s CPU market share decreased to 16%, down from 19% the previous quarter but up from 13% the previous year. The total iGPU (or CPU) shipments rose 7% to 60 million units in the final quarter of 2023. Server CPU shipments increased 2.8% quarter-on-quarter but dropped 26% from the previous year.

The desktop CPU market continued its downward trend through 2023, dropping from 37% in Q4 2022 to 30% last quarter. Notebook CPUs now comprise 70% of the total CPU market. Ergo, out of the 66 million shipments in Q4, less than 20 million were composed of desktop processors, while the remaining 46.2 million were notebook chips.
