Although AMD dominated gaming market for a period of time in the past, Intel had become household name when it comes to gaming computers. However, AMD has closed the gap over last couple of years due to impressive offerings. And now, a new report has revealed that more than 40 percent of the participants were using AMD processors.
According to the report from Jon Peddie Research, 41 percent of the participants are currently using AMD processors in their systems. If you have been following AMD’s product development over last couple of years, then the latest figure shouldn’t come off as a major surprise.
AMD introduced its Zen architecture more than two years ago. Since then, the company saw its market share in the processing market grow at a steady rate. Moreover, the company’s CPUs are still dominating Amazon’s best-selling processor list in the US, taking nine of the top ten spots. On the other hand, consumers in the EU market prefer AMD CPU’s due to their affordable offerings.
However, you should note that it’s just a small number of users. For instance, Steam Hardware Survey reveals that AMD’s processors are used by only 16 percent of the participants. That’s way below Intel’s whopping 84 percent. Moreover, AMD has seen 3.39 percent decline in growth between November and December of last year despite increase in computer sales during the holiday season.
Despite that, Ryzen 4000 series of desktop processors are expected to come out in the second half of this year. If AMD continues to introduce processors that offer great value for money, there’s no reason the company won’t experience continuous growth in the market moving forward.
