    Yay for AMD, but don't rest on your laurels.

    Where does 10.4% come from?
    If they had 20.6% and now have 24%, then they gained only 3.4% (from their side) or 3.4% (which Intel lost), so it is 3.4% max....

    UPDATE: Disregard, looks like the article got updated with new numbers (my comment above was based on some previous version).


    Regardless, these "market" share numbers don't truly reflect reality (but I admit they are uselful indicators).
    Kudos to AMD.

    That is simply outstanding news. A big well done to AMD. About time some real competition for Intel. Intel really needed a quick in the butt for these past few years. Such incremental changes in development.

    Now if only Vega could some how bring a miracle to the table. But alas, most of AMD's R&D has gone to RyZen and the CPU side of things. Still this is a fantastic way for AMD to get back into the red. Who knows, but the future is looking much brighter for us the consumer. Finally some good choices.

    I hope AMD can keep innovating with Zen and Navi is not the fail Vega is turning out to be.
    We, as consumers, need the old days of 2004/06 competition.

    It was a data blip before the days average took hold.

    May be a blip now, but at current prices I'm guessing more and more people will buy Ryzens (and soon Threadripppers)

    I'm certainly getting a TR sometime later this year... from 6 cores to 14 or 16... will be a MASSIVE jump for my video editing/transcoding activities.

    The point of data collection and reporting is to not rely on guesses.
    When data is displayed before collection is complete needs to be considered.
    Then you dont need to guess, just wait and see.
    Optimism is great as long as its not blind.

    Mother board prices will likely curb some of TR sales.

    It doesn't show up on the June Steam hardware survey, though. There AMD is still losing ground to Intel.

    the steam hardware survey is not an accurate source of information.

    Are there credible articles about that?

    I guess he means steam numbers are biased towards both gaming and low end rig users.
    IMHO is not easy to thrive on Steam Hardware Survey so the increase of AMD users is signifiative.

    Are pricing rumors floating around yet? They've been pretty accurate so far.

    I wonder how much higher it'd be if the BIOS tweaks worked from day 0. That put a hefty dent in Ryzen's reputation.

    Yeah, there was a temporary blip in the data (got us all excited for nothing :p). Still good news though, and I expect that the 10% figure might actually be true in a quarter or so from now, especially considering that Ryzen 3, Threadripper and the APUs have yet to be released.

    Finally, and the gap will come even closer until Intel comes out with a new architecture (might take a while).

    Until Intel makes something new. To my understanding, they've been using the same base architecture since 2008, though it seemed to be heavily revised in 2011 with Sandy Bridge.

    Of course, there were some significant architectural changes in between, such as using FinFETs in Ivy Bridge or transitioning to DDR4 with Skylake. Aside from that, things haven't changed much in a long while. When Intel finally creates something new, AMD is likely to lose some marketshare.

    The thing is, I'm not sure Intel is going to bother with a new architecture any time soon, at least not in a way we'd expect. They're so close to reaching the limits of silicon and despite the architectural differences in Ryzen, it just doesn't seem possible to get more performance out of x86 CPUs without requiring all software to be re-designed and re-compiled. Bulldozer was a good example of how conformity matters more than creating a theoretically better design.
