AMD's EPYC server processors are expected to slowly capture marketshare from Intel. At the moment, the latter still reigns supreme in the server market, and that's a scenario that isn't expected to change much in the near-term future as many firms are reluctant to switch to AMD.

DigiTimes writes AMD managed to increase its marketshare to 3.2 percent in Q4 2018, up from 0.8 percent in Q4 2017. AMD's marketshare is seen hitting over 10 percent by the end of 2020:
Because of the EPYC series' strong price/performance ratio and AMD's plan of releasing its next-generation 7nm datacenter processors codenamed Rome later in 2019, demand for the AMD-based servers has been rising.
