At the quarterly reporting event, company executives talked about changes in the processor supply mix only in relative terms, but the 10-Q reporting form released later allowed for specific numerical figures.AMD said the number of CPUs shipped in the quarter was down 43 percent, though the year-over-year average selling price was up 5 percent.Source image: AMDRemind that AMD's third-quarter revenue in the customer segment fell 40 percent from $1.7 billion to $1.0 billion, due to significant inventory build-up in customers' warehouses while demand decreased.While AMD has seen a 43 percent year on year decline in volume terms for the segment, the average selling price has even increased 5 percent although yesterday AMD officials said the number was down in sequential terms.AMD attributes the decline in processor shipments in volume terms to an accumulation of substantial inventory in the customer warehouse and a decline in demand for the product, but the year on year increase in average selling price is due to an increase in the share of more than 10 percent of the total sales volume.In this comparison, the number of CPUs sold to customers has decreased by 18%, and their average price has increased by 28%, but in this case due to the shift in demand towards more expensive mobile Ryzen models.Apparently, by the third quarter, the moment of inertia in sales of mobile processors AMD exhausted itself, and only desktop versions of Ryzen among the more expensive ones were in sane demand.By the way, AMD explained how its revenue changed in the gaming segment, which includes not only discrete graphics cards, but also components of game consoles.On an annualized basis in the third quarter, it grew 14% from $1.4 billion to $1.6 billion, but since the beginning of the year growth reached 34% and corresponded to the level of revenue of $5.2 billion.The engine of growth were gaming consoles, as noted yesterday, but gaming graphics cards have not only declined in revenue, but also reduced the number of shipped units.The weakness in video card demand is attributed to worsening macroeconomic conditions.
AMD quarterly report was released a few hours ago, and in terms of revenue dynamics only slightly disappointed analysts, who were ready for the loss of the former momentum of the PC market.The company's total revenue was up 29% year-over-year, but in the consumer segment it collapsed by 40% due to Ryzen processors, and had to end the quarter with operating losses in this area.Image source: AMDNet revenue for AMD fell 93% to $66 million, but the company attributes this to the costs associated with the Xilinx takeover deal.At the end of the quarter AMD's revenue was $5.6 billion, and while a 29% increase in annualized terms cannot be characteristic of previous quarters, it still looks decent against the backdrop of competitors.Profit margin decreased during the year from 48% to 42%, operating expenses increased by 113% to $2.43 billion, and the quarter ended with an operating loss of $64 million.The company explains this by the growth of expenses on research and development, as well as by the consequences of the Xilinx takeover deal.Due to the need to reduce inventories and review product prices in the past quarter AMD lost at least $ 160 million.Image source: AMDAs the head of the company Lisa Su (Lisa Su) said at the conference call, \"the third quarter was worse than we expected because of the deteriorating PC market and a significant correction of inventories in the supply chain in this segment.In fact, the value of inventory at the end of the quarter increased 77% to $3.37 billion.Even in such a difficult environment, the CEO added, the company managed to increase revenue in the data center, embedded and gaming solutions segments.At least in the area of game consoles there was a positive trend.Image source: AMDIn the segment of data centers revenue grew by 45% year on year to $1.6 billion due to the popularity of central processors EPYC family.Operating profit rose from $308 million to $505 million, and the operating margin rose from 28% to 31%.The past quarter was AMD's tenth consecutive quarter in which its server processor sales volumes in cash terms broke a record.EPYC processors of new Genoa generation are in high demand, as pointed out by AMD, although their formal announcement is only scheduled for November 10.Shipments of Xilinx Programmable Matrixes and Pensando Computing Accelerators are up noticeably.Lisa Su said she expects revenue growth in the server segment next year, especially cloud solutions in the U.S., but the Chinese market will be weak.Image source: AMDIn the client segment, AMD saw a 40% drop in revenue to $1 billion compared to the same quarter last year.Processor shipments declined due to inventory surpluses while demand in the PC market declined, all of which resulted in an operating loss of $26 million in the segment.Nevertheless, the shift in the supply mix in favor of the more expensive Ryzen desktop models allowed the average selling price to increase year-over-year.The company only needs to add that the Ryzen 7000 processors with Zen 4 architecture introduced in the last quarter received praise in published reviews.By the end of 2023, according to Lisa Suh, the capacity of the PC market should shrink by 10%.This year, the market will shrink by the full 20%.Image source: AMDIn the gaming segment, which recently includes both graphics cards and components for gaming consoles, AMD managed to increase revenues by 14% year-on-year to $1.6 billion.While revenues in the direction of graphics cards declined, gaming consoles provided a positive trend, partially compensating for this.In fact, gaming console components have been breaking revenue records for six consecutive quarters.Operating profit in this segment fell from $231 million to $142 million.The company had to generate less revenue from graphics solutions and faced increased inventory, as well as downward price adjustments.The operating profit margin dropped from 16% to 9%.Gaming consoles were in high demand because of Microsoft and Sony's preparations for the new season.On the profile slide of the presentation AMD also did not forget to mention the preparation for the announcement of graphics solutions generation RDNA 3 with chips produced by 5nm technology.Novelties are to significantly increase performance compared to current generation products.As expected, they will be presented this week.AMD's revenue in the segment of embedded solutions grew by an impressive 1549% to $ 1.3 billion as a result of changes in the accounting structure and the acquisition of Xilinx at the beginning of the current
The yet-to-be-announced AMD Ryzen 7 7700 processor has made its first mark in the Geekbench synthetic test database.The chip has eight physical cores with support for 16 virtual threads, and its clock speed reaches 5350 MHz, probably in automatic overclocking.Image source: AMD Recall that AMD introduced only four desktop models within the new Ryzen 7000 series: the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X, the 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X, the eight-core Ryzen 7 7700X and the six-core Ryzen 5 7600X.Surely in the future the company is going to dilute the range of the series with younger models, as well as solutions without the suffix \"X\" in the name. AMD Ryzen 7 7700 specifications.Source image: GeekbankshThe above Ryzen 7 7700 was tested on ASRock X670E Taichi motherboard, with DDR5-4800 RAM.Recall that Ryzen 7000 processors are supported without overclocking and faster DDR5-5200 memory.According to test data, the chip base frequency is 3.8 GHz, which is 700 MHz lower than the Ryzen 77700X model.Power consumption of the new item is 65W, which is lower than that of the Ryzen 7 7700X, which has 105W.

AMD today introduced Ryzen Embedded V3000 embedded processors based on Zen 3 architecture cores.Compared to the V1000 series, the new AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 processors offer more cores, higher performance, increased DRAM memory transfer rates, and improved I/O capabilities.Image source: AMDThe Ryzen V series processors can be used in a variety of applications - enterprise and cloud storage, network routing, switching and firewall protection in data centers.Their high performance and low power consumption are suitable for the most demanding work environments and 24/7 workloads.\"We designed AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 processors for customers looking for a balance of high performance and power efficiency for a wide range of applications in a compact BGA package,\" said Rajneesh Gaur, corporate vice president and general manager, Embedded Solutions Group, AMD.\"The V3000 Series processors provide a wide range of features needed for productive work in enterprise Storage and networking processors must be balanced in performance and heat dissipation for rack-mount, space-constrained applications,\" said Shane Rau, IDC's vice president of computing semiconductor research.- The new AMD Ryzen Embedded V3000 processor family enables system designers to take full advantage of single board design and BGA packaging to create more versatile and flexible solutions that facilitate system integration.\"
At an event for financial analysts, AMD not only talked about the innovations and performance levels Zen 4 processors, but also looked ahead to a more distant future with Zen 5 processors expected to be released by the end of 2024, including a new 3nm processor architecture.Source image: AMDThe enlarged picture of AMD plans on processor architectures development was revealed by the company's technical director Mark Papermaster.First of all, the Zen 4 and Zen 5 architecture processor families will also include models with 3D V-Cache memory.Since this slide makes no distinction between client and server processor architectures, Zen 4c and Zen 5c architecture carriers are also placed in line with the rest.Logically, they should be offered in the server segment, offering processors optimized in terms of specific performance for servers with a high density layout.Image source: AMDIt is noteworthy that the processors of Zen 4 generation will be available in both 5-nm and 4-nm technology.For the Zen 5 generation, a combination of 4nm and 3nm technology will be relevant.Whether it will manifest itself as part of specific models, or lithography steps will replace each other sequentially during the lifecycle of the processors, is not specified.In principle, the chip layout allows for both options.The debut of the Zen 5 architecture is tied to 2024.It is reported to be a new architecture from an evolutionary perspective that will offer new optimizations for artificial intelligence and machine learning systems.Both performance and energy efficiency will be improved.Image source: AMDIn the press release for the analyst event, AMD mentions the code names of the future generations of processors.So, in the mobile segment, Phoenix Point 4nm processors combining Zen 4 computing architecture and RDNA 3 graphics will debut in 2023.In 2024, they are expected to give way to Strix Point processors with Zen 5 architecture and integrated RDNA 3+ graphics.As it is specified, Phoenix Point processors will use chipset layout, which AMD has neglected until now in the mobile segment.Technological process of Phoenix Point components production is not specified, but it is marked that it will be more advanced than the 4-nm.Image source: AMDIn desktop segment processors should be replaced by Granite Ridge processors with Zen 4 architecture, but their announcing dates are not specified.It is clear only that they will come out before the end of 2024.As part of the architecture Zen 4 will be presented before the 5nm Ryzen Threadripper family processors.Moreover, Ryzen 7000 family will include models with 3D V-Cache memory.
Absolutely all Ryzen 7000s will get integrated graphics, and later AMD will release desktop APUs with powerful iGPUs
For the last few days Robert Hallock, AMD's director of technical marketing, has been actively giving interviews to various publications and sharing details about the Socket AM5 platform in general, and the Ryzen 7000 processors in particular.Talking to TechPowerUp, Hallock shared some details about the next-generation Ryzen processor's integrated RDNA 2 graphics.According to him, it will be standard on all Ryzen 7000 chips.Image source: AMD \"Ryzen 7000 embedded graphics will be 'standard'.It is based on the 6-nm process and contains a small number of embedded processing units.Its main tasks are to provide support for video encoding and decoding and operation of several video outputs.For enthusiasts, the \"embedded\" will help to diagnose the discrete graphics card in the system.The configuration of embedded graphics will be the same for all models of the [Ryzen 7000 Raphael] processor series,\" noted Hallock.From Hallock's words, we can conclude that the company does not plan to produce a series of processors without embedded graphics, the conventional Ryzen 7000F.RDNA 2 computing units are contained within the chip with I/O interfaces (I/O die).Integrated graphics will provide basic picture display functions, as well as support for video encoding (including AV1) and decoding.In other words, the Ryzen 7000 \"embedded\" is absolutely not intended for gaming.Hallock also added that having integrated graphics as part of all Ryzen 7000 processors does not mean the company is abandoning hybrid processors (APUs) in the desktop chip environment.In the future, the market will also appear processors under the Socket AM5 with a powerful integrated graphics core.We do not consider Ryzen 7000 series processors as APU.Yes, Ryzen 7000 also have integrated graphics, but they are different solutions.For us, an APU is a product with powerful integrated graphics that can run games and has all the capabilities for video encoding and decoding and so on.\"Embedded\" Ryzen 7000 is just for displaying a picture on the screen, to offer basic video processing capabilities, to run home theater, some work applications.But these are not gaming-level graphics.APUs are an integral part of our roadmap.We will definitely share more details later,\" Hallock added.
