Thanks to the Zen architecture, AMD is slowly but steadily recapturing some of the marketshare it lost to Intel over the past decade or so. These kind of things happen very slowly, according to the latest x86 report from Mercury Research, AMD held a marketshare of 13.3 percent in the overall x86 market in Q1 2019. That's 1.0 percentage points more than the previous quarter and 4.7 percent more than a year ago.

In the desktop market, AMD has a higher share of the pie. The company now holds 17.1 percent of the x86 desktop market, up from 15.8 percent in Q4 2018 and 12.2 percent in Q1 2018.

Gains are also seen in the mobile market, where AMD now has 13.1 percent marketshare, up 1.0 percent versus the previous quarter and 5.1 percent more than the year ago period.

AMD's progress in the server market is still pretty poor. It stood at 2.9 percent in Q1 2019, that's 1.9 percent more than a year ago but 0.3 percent less than Q4 2018.

With Zen 2 being rolled out soon, the only way to go for AMD is up.
