Companies are Turning to AMD Over Intel

Intel has ruled the market for Enterprise CPU’s for the last decade. They have always been the more comfortable choice when choosing a processor for any server needs. Many datacenters worldwide have standardized their workloads on Intel CPU’s for years.
 
 

The last time AMD was even a viable chip in the server industry, it was still only minimally used. Fast forward ten years, and AMD is really moving in on Intel’s share of the processor market. With their high core count, fast, and cheap CPU’s, AMD is really giving Intel a run for its money. Many companies have decided that brand is no longer important and now take a brand-agnostic stance. In most use cases, it comes down to price and availability. With flashy core counts in a single CPU and price-per-core being cheaper than Intel, most datacenter gurus are asking the question, “Should we use AMD?”  
 

AMD has captured just over 20% of the market share in 2021. This is a huge considering Intel owned more than 90% of the market in 2020. If there hadn’t been global chip shortages over the last year, who knows how much more market share AMD would have captured.
