Strong Product Portfolio to Aid AMD’s Prospects

AMD gains from a strong product portfolio operating in Data Center, Client, Gaming and Embedded Segments. Its RDNA processor architecture uplifts the performance, scalability and efficiency of various AMD processors and graphic cards.

AMD’s shares have increased 67.1% year to date compared with the Zacks Computer and Technology sector’s rise of 25.4% in the same time frame.

The recent outperformance can be attributed to strong demand for its EPYC, Radeon and Ryzen processors in various end-markets. Strengthening of PC and server markets and continued product launch have been major tailwinds.

AMD expects its Embedded revenues to grow year over year in second-quarter 2023. Success in the embedded market is built on its differentiated and scalable offerings that address varied power, performance and environmental requirements.

AMD Faces Stiff Competition

The company reported first-quarter 2023 revenues of $5.35 billion which decreased 9.1% year over year.

Shares of Intel, NVDA and Microchip have increased 9.7%, 109% and 4.8% year to date, respectively.

AMD expects its Embedded and Gaming segment revenues to decline sequentially. It suffers from strong competition in its FPGA and ASIC-equipped processors in the embedded segment by Intel and Microchip.

AMD also expects its Client, Gaming and Data Center segment revenues to decline year over year due to the current demand environment. It suffers from strong competition in its high-end GPU market with market leaders like NVIDIA, lowering its gaming graphics sales.
