Citing market sources, DigiTimes claims AMD is on track to hit a laptop processor marketshare of 20 percent this year. This would be a record for the company. The Ryzen APUs are able to capture marketshare from Intel but the latter still reigns supreme.
AMD is making major gains in the notebook processor market in 2020, thanks to strong demand from the education sector. Notebook vendors having been seeking more support from AMD to meet the needs from the education sector, as a result of shortages of Intel processors. Strong demand for notebooks is expected to last, but shipments have been undermined by shortages of components, such as PWM ICs, which in turn have prevented notebook battery makers from fulfilling all orders. Tight supply of 8-inch foundry capacity has been blamed for the component shortages, and Foxconn is looking to secure more 8-inch foundry support. It reportedly is seeking to take a stake in Malaysia-based Silterra.
