AMD cites growing demand for 4th Gen EPYC and Ryzen 8000 Series processors for the growth in the Client sector. Its server share (compared primarily to Intel) is now 23.6% compared to 18% a year ago. For Desktop processors, aka Ryzen, AMD's share has increased to 23.9% compared to 19.2% a year ago.

Mobile CPUs, which are Ryzen chips for laptops, mini PCs, and PC gaming handhelds, also saw their share increase in Q1 2024 to 19.3% compared to 16.2% a year ago. However, this figure presents a slight dip from the previous quarter - chalked up to a decline in overall shipments for low-end PCs.

To summarize, AMD's share of the Server market (in terms of CPU shipments) for Q1 2024 increased 5.6% year-over-year, with AMD's share of the Desktop market for Q1 2024 increased 4.7% year-over-year. Looking at all three - Server, Desktop, and Mobile - Client market share increased 2.6% year-over-year.

With AMD poised to announce and release its upcoming Zen 5 architecture and next-gen AI-powered desktop Ryzen line-up in the coming months, AMD is poised to keep up this momentum and continue to close the gap between its products and those offered by its main competitor - Intel.
