AMD's full-year financials for 2015 show 28% decline in revenue

Last year one of our biggest stories was the discrete GPU market share numbers, with NVIDIA dominating, taking in a huge 82% of the market - leaving AMD with only 18%.


Well, now we have AMD's full-year financials to look at, with the company reporting a 28% decline in revenue for 2015. AMD reported revenues of $3.99 billion for the year, down from $5.5 billion in 2014. In Q4 2015, AMD saw a 10% decline in revenue compared to Q3, with $958 million compared to $1.06 billion in the previous three-month period.

If we look at the performance of AMD's separate businesses, the computing and graphics part of AMD saw an 11% increase in Q4, with revenues of $470 million. AMD shipped considerable numbers of high-end notebook processors, especially their Carrizo-based APUs and FX processors. The enterprise, embedded and semi-custom side of AMD didn't do well, with $488 million in revenue, and a 23% decline compared to the previous quarter.

Looking into 2016, AMD recently split its GPU division into Radeon Technologies Group. We should see RTG unleash next-gen GPUs in June, which should increase not only their market share, but revenues and profits throughout the year.
