PC chipset maker AMD today said its estimates suggest that it has gained 40 per cent market share in commercial segment in the third quarter, mainly on account of increased business from the government vertical.
"We expect to have gained 40 per cent market share in enterprise segment in the third quarter. We are waiting for third party data to come which will verify it," AMD India Senior Director for Enterprise Business, Vinay Sinha said.
He was speaking on sidelines of launching Ryzen Pro processors with 8 cores and 16 threads with up to 3.7 gigahertz processing speed.
"AMD has helped in keeping price of personal computers in affordable range otherwise there would have been monopoly in the market and prices would have few hundreds of dollars higher. We work with OEMs (original equipment maker) who are building their product portfolio based on AMD processors," AMD coprorate vice president Matthew Zielinski said.
He said the mutli-core and multi-thread will help user in accessing multiple applications simultaneously at faster pace.
"With every generation of our product, AMD has improved on energy efficiency. Between Zen series (technology on which Ryzen series has been developed) and Excavator, we were expecting 40 per cent improvement in energy efficiency but it finally turned out to be 52 per cent. OEMs are adopted it because of improved performance and efficiency," Zielinski said.
Sinha said AMD will expand business reach in next financial year where it will work with both large retail outlets and e-commerce platform to push sales of its product.
"We have HP, Dell, Lenovo and Acer building their product portfolio on AMD processors. There is a growing demand for high performance, secure commercial PCs from government and private sector enterprises in India as they undertake their digital transformation. In third quarter of 2016, we had 22 per cent share so have nearly doubled our share," Sinha said.
