AMD

AMD is making a bigger play for the enterprise with its recent launch of third-generation EPYC processors for servers and Ryzen Pro 5000 processors for business laptops. The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company saw its overall x86 CPU market share for 2020 grow 6.2 points to 21.7 percent over the previous year. It’s hoping to continue those gains with more than 100 new server platforms supporting third-generation EPYC, more than 400 EPYC-based cloud instances and more than 150 laptops supporting AMD’s new Ryzen 5000 processors this year. AMD is also planning to expand its portfolio with its pending $35 billion acquisition of programmable chipmaker Xilinx, which is set to close in 2021.
