Even with COVID-19, AMD expects revenue growth of 30% – AMD is having a great season, thanks to its Zen architecture originally launched in 2017! Which in turn gave rise to Ryzen, Threadripper and EPYC products.
After all, after a first warning in 2017 and 2018 with the first Ryzen, we have now had a resounding success of products based on the Zen 2 architecture (Ryzen 3000), and graphics cards based on the Navi architecture (Radeon RX 5000). Therefore, as expected, the manufacturer remains committed to the field.
Even with COVID-19, AMD expects 30% revenue growth
Therefore, it seems that AMD is really betting strong and ugly on its new Zen 3 architecture, forgetting any processor launch in 2020 (using an alleged Zen 2+ architecture), due to the lack of competition from Intel, which continues attached to its 14nm process and 2015 architecture (Skylake).
Thus, the new products based on the Zen 3 architecture are expected to be a new ‘game-changer’ for the company, taking AMD into the world of profits, after several years on the verge of banking-route. (Taking full advantage of Intel's current situation)
In short, Intel ‘offered’ an oxygen bubble so large to its rival, that the Zen 3 architecture will finally put AMD in a comfortable space as far as finance is concerned.
In fact, these numbers are impressive, especially when we take into account the threat of the Coronavirus that is lived all over the planet. It's just that in case you don't know, even with the Coronavirus, AMD decided to revise the accounts for the first quarter upwards.
In short, in 2019, AMD showed that it truly returned to war with its Ryzen 3000s, by making a big dent in the market share of rival Intel. Especially when comparing products in terms of performance / price.
So, now it's time to continue this bet! with AMD launching a wide range of bombshell products in 2020. Where we have to point out the SoCs that will bring the new PS5 and Xbox Series X to life, as well as the new Ryzen 4000 mobile that even take over Intel desktop solutions at the same time that consume a third of the energy.
In fact, according to AMD's own CEO (Dr. Lisa Su), the manufacturer is even preparing to launch the first truly high-end graphics card … In other words, AMD wants to do to NVIDIA what it has been doing to Intel.
