AMDâ€™s share in the notebook PC market is now the highest ever, just under 20 percent, the company said Tuesday night.
AMDâ€™s market share of X86 notebook PCs now stands at an all-time high of 19.9 percent, according to the company, citing a Tuesday report by analyst firm Mercury Research. Though PCWorld did not have access to the full report, Dean McCarron, the Mercury analyst who authored it, confirmed the accuracy of AMDâ€™s statement in an email.
Though neither AMD nor Mercury cited the reasons for AMDâ€™s strength in the notebook PC market, itâ€™s reasonable to assume that AMDâ€™s mobile Ryzen 4000 is the cause. AMDâ€™s latest mobile chip is blowing away Intel in terms of performance. Notebook sales more than doubled during AMDâ€™s recent quarter. AMDâ€™s mobile Ryzen 4000 now powers 54 notebooks, and there are 30 more waiting in the wings, AMD CEO Lisa Su said.
