AMD posted its first-quarter financial results. The chip designer pulled in revenue of $1.65 billion and GAAP net income of $81 million. Revenue was up 40 percent year-over-year and 23 percent quarter-over-quarter. On an adjusted basis, AMD pulled in net income of $121 million, which comes down to 11 cents per share. These figures compare favorably to Wall Street estimates, which called for earnings per share of 9 cents and revenue of $1.57 billion.

Shares are currently up 9.58 percent to $10.64 in after-hours trading thanks to the earnings beat and positive guidance. Zooming in on the numbers, revenue from the Computing and Graphics segment was $1.12 billion, up 95 percent year-over-year and 23 percent quarter-over-quarter thanks to strong Radeon and Ryzen sales. Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom (EESC) sales on the other hand were down 12 percent year-over-year due to lower semi-custom chip revenue.

For the current quarter, AMD anticipates revenue of $1.725 billion, plus or minus $50 million. We'll over the highlights from the conference call tomorrow morning.
AMD (NASDAQ:AMD) today announced revenue for the first quarter of 2018 of $1.65 billion, operating income of $120 million, net income of $81 million, and diluted earnings per share of $0.08. On a non-GAAP(1) basis, operating income was $152 million, net income was $121 million, and diluted earnings per share was $0.11.

“The first quarter was an outstanding start to 2018 with 40 percent year-over-year revenue growth,” said Dr. Lisa Su, AMD president and CEO. “PC, gaming and datacenter adoption of our new, high-performance products continues to accelerate. We are excited about our long-term roadmaps and focused on delivering sustained revenue growth and profitability.”

  • Net income was $81 million compared to net losses of $33 million a year ago and $19 million in the prior quarter. Diluted earnings per share was $0.08, compared to losses per share of $0.04 a year ago and $0.02 in the prior quarter.

    Quarterly Financial Segment Summary
  • Computing and Graphics segment revenue was $1.12 billion, up 95 percent year-over-year and 23 percent quarter-over-quarter, primarily driven by strong sales of Radeon and Ryzen products.
  • Client processor average selling price (ASP) increased year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter due to a greater percentage of revenue from our Ryzen products.
  • GPU ASP increased year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter driven by a greater percentage of revenue from our new Radeon products.
  • Operating income was $138 million, compared to an operating loss of $21 million a year ago and operating income of $33 million in the prior quarter. Operating income improvement was driven by higher revenue. Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom (EESC) segment revenue was $532 million, down 12 percent year-over-year due to lower semi-custom revenue, partially offset by higher server and embedded revenue.

  • Operating income was $14 million, compared to operating income of $55 million a year ago and an operating loss of $13 million in the prior quarter. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to a licensing gain that occurred in Q1 2017. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily due to higher revenue.
