AMD announced a second-quarter non-GAAP net loss of $40 million, or 5 cents a share, on revenue of $1.027 billion. Revenue is up 8.3 percent year-over-year, primarily due to higher sales of semi-custom SoCs. The reported figures compare favorable to analyst estimates, which projected a loss of 8 cents per share and revenue of $0.958 billion.
A closer look at the data reveals revenue of the computing and graphics segment accounted for $435 million, down 5 percent versus the previous quarter but up 15 percent versus the year ago period. Enterprise, embedded and semi-custom sales on the other hand came in at $592 million, up 59 percent sequentially and 5 percent year-over-year.
AMD expects third-quarter revenue will be up 18 percent sequentially, plus or minus 3 percent.
AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announced revenue for the second quarter of 2016 of $1,027 million, operating loss of $8 million, and net income of $69 million, or $0.08 per diluted share. Non-GAAP (1) operating income was $3 million and non-GAAP (1) net loss was $40 million, or $0.05 per share.
"In the second quarter we accomplished a significant milestone as we returned to non-GAAP operating profitability based on solid execution and strong demand for our semi-custom and graphics products," said Lisa Su, AMD president and CEO. "Based on the strength of our semi-custom products and demand for our latest Radeon RX GPUs and 7th Generation A-Series APUs, we are well positioned to drive growth and market share gains in the second half of the year."
