US-based semiconductor goliath, the Advanced Micro Devices, shortly dubbed as AMD, engaged in developing computer processors alongside related technologies unveils its second-generation processor chip aimed at data-center businesses on Wednesday, the 7th of August 2019.
By the same token, an AMD official had been quoted saying followed by Wednesday’s (August 7th) statement that the US-based chipmaker had already grabbed Alphabet’s Google alongside Twitter as its customers. On top of that, AMD, the second-largest supplier for x86-based microprocessor with just one notable rival, Intel Corp., are leaning more and more towards data center chips, as personal computer market became stagnant and users had been leaning on to mobile devices.
According to AMD’s Wednesday’s (August 7th) statement, its newest server chip, dubbed as EPYC, rolls out a new technology that would be offering an unscaled experience and consuming less energy. Aside from that, AMD was quoted saying earlier on Thursday (August 8th) that Alphabet Inc.’s Google LP had been using its second-gen EPYC server chips on multiple internal data centers over the recent past.
Nonetheless, AMD would unlikely to replace Intel’s position as a dominant supplier of data center chips in the US markets in a near-term outlook, since the US-based chipmaker had been controlling more than 90 percent of US chipmaking market share.
