AMD will reportedly see a rise in its product sales in H2 2019, according to the recent report of Taiwanese company DigiTimes. This is because of the increase in the demand for CPU and GPU shipments of the notebook, motherboard, and servers in the second half of this year. The upcoming 7nm-based product stack is expected to drive interest in AMD adoption among PC makers in 2019.
AMD is expected to launch the portfolio based on the 7nm process maybe as early as Computex. Also, the new Rome server CPUs will start shipping towards the middle of the year, and the next-gen Navi GPUs will debut in Q3. All chips are fabricated on the 7nm process.
The report also writes that due to Intel’s CPU shortages, HP and Lenovo have been placing orders for AMD’s CPUs for their notebooks since the second half of 2018. Also, Asus has already adopted AMD’solutions in a couple of its gaming notebooks. Furthermore, Acer and HP have also been using AMD’s platform for their Chromebooks. With such a strong foothold, AMD is expected to do more business and see its share significantly increasing in the notebook market.
A major part of its growth may come from Google as well as reportedly Google Stadia, the latest cloud stream gaming platform is also adopting AMD’s GPUs for the system. It’s also set to deliver solutions for Sony’s and Microsoft’s next consoles as well.
