There will be smiles all round at AMD with a huge 307% increase in year-over-year quarterly earnings, with a reported $110 million profit for Q3 2017, compared to the $27 million in Q3 2016.
AMD was expected to make $0.08 per share by analysts, but blew past those delivering $0.10 per share. AMD's total revenue rose to $1.64 billion, a 25.2% increase over the $1.31 billion from last year. AMD has had a successful year of putting it to Intel, making Chipzilla react in ways they've never done before. Ryzen has been a success, and even more so for Ryzen Threadripper and AMD's exciting new server range with EPYC.
