Still will have 90 per cent

Intel's server processor market share is likely to fall below 90 percent by the end of 2020, as AMD with its EPYC series continues to attract more orders from server vendors and cloud service providers.

Digitimes has been chatting to analaysts and thinks that Intel's absolute control of the server market will slowly disappear as the new EYPC chips continue to bite.

EPYC has a strong price/performance ratio and AMD's plan of releasing its next-generation 7nm datacenter processors codenamed Rome later in 2019 has been attracting attention from companies looking for a long term plan.

NTT Data announced that it was going to procure datacenter servers equipped with AMD EPYC processors for its credit and financial information system (CAFIS) from Tyan Computer.

AMD's share in the server processor market rose strongly to 3.2 percent in the fourth quarter of 2018 from 0.8  percent in the fourth quarter of 2017.

AMD achieved revenues of $6.48 billion for 2018, up 23 per cent annually and net profits arrived at $337 million, up from 2017's loss of $33 million as the company had enjoyed rising EPYC and Ryzen processor shipments and increased GPU sales.
