Mercury Research just issued its report about the evolution in the CPU market in Q4 2019. The report reveals AMD posted marketshare gains across all x86 segments for the ninth time in a row. Depending on the product category, AMD's CPU marketshare is now at the highest level since 2013/2014.
Last quarter, the biggest gains were seen in the laptop market. AMD now has a 16.2 percent marketshare in the laptop processor market, up 1.5 percent quarter-over-quarter and up 4.0 percent year-over-year.

Desktop processor marketshare stands at 18.3 percent, up 0.3 percent quarter-over-quarter and 2.4 percent year-over-year. Adoption of the EPYC server processors on the other hand is going a lot slower. AMD's server marketshare is just 4.5 percent, which is only 0.2 percent more than the previous quarter and 1.4 percent more than a year ago.
"Desktop CPUs were up due to strong high-end gaming CPU demand, and also because Intel improved entry-level CPU supply during the quarter. AMD had very strong growth in the "Matisse" core Ryzen 3000 series, and in addition to the improved entry-level supply Intel had strong growth in i9. Much of the growth for both AMD and Intel happened at the very very top of the market for CPUs with the highest core counts," said Dean McCarron of Mercury Research.
