Despite AMD's resurgence in the CPU market, it seems some big players in the PC market aren't keen on adopting Ryzen or EPYC in the near future. Speaking to Channel Pro at the MWC in Barcelona, Dell EMC CTO John Roese revealed that his company has no plans to offer wide numbers of AMD-based PCs any time soon. Intel remains the big player, Roese explained, and he added that he doesn't expect it to be a duopoly any time soon.
“Make no mistake about it,” he said at MWC in Barcelona today, “Intel is the big player, AMD is the second player. There's enough diversity between them that there are use cases to have them both in our portfolio, but just the sheer breadth of the Intel processor portfolio is massive compared to even the accelerated AMD world.”
“AMD is doing some interesting things, and by adding them to the portfolio we pick up a few extra areas, but let's be very clear: there is a huge, dominant player in compute semiconductors, and then there is a challenger which is doing some very good innovative work called AMD, but the gap between them is quite large in terms of market share and use-cases. So our portfolio is not going to change in any meaningful way.”
