AMD finally overtakes Intel in the CPU market


In the processor market, there are two major rivals, Intel and AMD. Intel has always dominated the debate in terms of market share. Until today!

As far as processors are concerned, there are two main families: Intel processors and those manufactured by AMD. These two giants in the industry have always, or almost always, fought a fierce battle to win the market. And for most of their lives, Intel has always, or almost always, been in the lead. But things are changing today, as AMD steals the crown from its competitor.


AMD would be ahead of Intel for the first time in the CPU market

For years and years, Intel and AMD have been competing in the CPU market, and in all that time, AMD has never really been able to match Intel in terms of market share. Having said that, in recent years the situation has changed. AMD Ryzen CPUs have become increasingly popular, thanks in part to their better price/performance ratio than Intel chips. And this is now being felt in market share.

According to PassMark's figures

This popularity is now such that, according to PassMark, publisher of the benchmark software of the same name, for the first time since 2006, AMD has overtaken Intel in terms of CPU market share. The graphs on its site show a very interesting trend. From 2006 until about 2018, the gap between AMD and Intel was very large, but since then, AMD has been constantly bridging this gap.

Intel is dominating?

Intel still largely dominates the scene for laptops and servers, but the progress is still extremely impressive for AMD. The last few years have not been kind to Intel. The foundry was forced to sell its modem unit to Apple. Not to mention the fact that Apple has distanced itself from the American giant by designing its own CPUs. And at the latest news, other companies, including Microsoft, are preparing something similar.


This in no way means that Intel is dead and buried, far from it, but the brand will have to react, and quickly, if it wants to keep its place, or at least stay in the race, in the CPU market.


  1. Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you penning
    this write-up and also the rest of the site is also really good.
    Great site, keep it up! I couldn’t resist commenting.
    Perfectly written!

  2. This design is steller! You definitely know how to keep a
    reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost
    moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you
    presented it. Too cool!
