If chaos defined Intelâ€™s second-quarter earnings report, a sense of normalcy was the theme of AMDâ€™s second-quarter earnings. AMD reported strong revenue in its Ryzen and Epyc processor lines, with notebook revenue more than doubling from a year ago.
AMDâ€™s only weak point was in its graphics business, where lower channel sales in desktop products offset a double-digit increase in mobile GPU sales.
Overall, AMD reported profits of $157 million, a sharp increase over the $35 million AMD reported a year ago, on revenue that climbed 26 percent to $1.93 billion. AMDâ€™s Computing & Graphics segment, which includes its Ryzen CPUs and its Radeon GPU business, grew a whopping 45 percent over the previous year, to $1.37 billion.
