Intel's server market share predicted to drop below 90% thanks to AMD's EPYC gains

A report from Digitimes has claimed that Intel's server processor market share is set to drop below 90% by the end of 2020, a shift which is to be brought about by the introduction of AMD's 7nm EPYC CPU offerings. 

With Zen 2, AMD has an opportunity to catch Intel in a tight position, leveraging their chiplet approach to CPU design and 7nm lithography to deliver their customers the value and performance that they need while securing high margins for the company. At this time Intel's 10nm server processors have no firm release date, giving AMD the opportunity to deliver products that offer greater value and performance/watt than their competitors, a move that is sure to secure AMD additional market share. 

Between Q4 2017 and Q4 2018, AMD's server CPU market share increased from 0.8% to 3.2%, generating the company some much-needed revenue while securing a foothold within the wider server market. AMD's Zen 2-based EPYC processors will undoubtedly help bring more customers to the company's side, especially if the company meets its performance and power consumption targets.

AMD is set to have a strong 2019, with the release of Zen 2-based EPYC and Ryzen processors coming on the horizon. These mid-2019 launches will help bring AMD back into the high-end of both the consumer and datacenter sides of the processor market, securing the company more revenue which will undoubtedly help the company become a long-term competitor within the x86 landscape.
