AMD's mobility segment saw the biggest market share jump in the second quarter of 2020. The share increased from 17.1% (Q1 2020) to 19.9% (Q2 2020).
This is a +2.9% increase over previous quarter and a +5.8% increase over the previous year. As of right now, a 19.9% market share in the mobility segment is the highest ever achieved by AMD since its inception.

The latest AMD market share statistics from Mercury Research have been released and according to them, the red team has just secured its highest x86 CPU market share since 2013. This marks a major win for AMD in its continued journey with the Zen family of processors, reaching for newer heights with each successive generation of Ryzen and EPYC CPUs.

Amazing. I purchased a 3700x for a home lab I buit last month and I’m very happy with the cost to performance ratio.

I was going to get an intel chip but they were more expensive.

the dominance on sales to gain overall % on those time frame must be really great.

Sounds about right since the last AMD PC I built was using a Phenom II X4 955 way back in like 2009 or 2010. Before that it was probably an old Athlon XP 1800+ in the early 00s.

I don’t know if any processor was king as long as my i5 2500k system during the great stagnation years.
