AMD on Tuesday revealed its monetary outcomes for the third quarter of 2022. The corporate’s income totaled $5.6 billion primarily due to weak gross sales of AMD’s CPUs and GPUs for the consumer section. In the meantime, gross sales of AMD’s information heart merchandise set one other report as demand for EPYC CPUs, Pensando DPUs, in addition to Xilinx area programmable gate array merchandise remained sturdy.
“Third quarter outcomes got here in under our expectations as a result of softening PC market and substantial stock discount actions throughout the PC provide chain,” mentioned Dr. Lisa Su, the pinnacle of AMD. “Regardless of the difficult macro setting, we grew income 29% year-over-year pushed by elevated gross sales of our information heart, embedded and recreation console merchandise.

Subsequently AMD wanted to supply particular incentives to promote merchandise sitting within the firm’s inventory.
AMD’s Gaming enterprise — which incorporates consumer GPUs and console system-on-chips — continued to exhibit combined outcomes in the course of the quarter. The enterprise unit earned $1,631 billion in the course of the third quarter, up 14% year-over-year. However AMD’s Gaming BU thrived not as a result of demand for its Radeon RX 6000-series graphics processors was notably sturdy however as a result of Microsoft and Sony ready for the vacation season and purchased a boatload of system-on-chips for his or her Xbox and PlayStation recreation consoles in Q3 2022.
AMD’s Datacenter enterprise unit has been the corporate’s fundamental success story lately.

First, the elemental weak point of the consumer PC market will hardly let the corporate promote a great deal of its consumer CPUs. In the meantime, gross sales of console SoCs will probably be down sequentially. Increased gross sales will unlikely offset them if AMD’s discrete graphics processors as the corporate usually ramp up its GPUs very slowly.
For This autumn of 2022, AMD expects income to be roughly $5.5 billion ± $300 million, a rise of round 14% YoY and flat sequentially. For the total yr 2022, AMD initiatives income to be roughly $23.5 billion ± $300 million, a rise of about 43% over the earlier yr, primarily pushed by the success of AMD’s information heart and embedded merchandise.
