AMD's upward trajectory continues, driven by sales of CPU and game console chips
In the past quarter, AMD reported an adjusted EPS of $0.52 on revenues of $3.24 billion. The figures came in higher than what Wall Street was expecting: $0.47 earnings per share and revenues of $3.03 billion.
The quarter's star was the enterprise segment, which reported a 176% increase year-over-year and a 13% growth from the previous quarter to $1.28 billion. This division includes server chips and graphic processors for game consoles such as Sony PS5 and Microsoft Xbox One. The increase was driven by the rise in processor sales – chips which have been consistently selling out since last fall when they hit the shelves.
AMD expects its revenue to reach a high of $3.3 billion for the current quarter, while for the full year a 37% growth. In 2020, AMD's revenue was 45% higher year-over-year.
Following the news, AMD stock price gained 0.62%.
