AMD’s Data Center segment showcased significant growth, with an 80% increase from the previous year to $2.3 billion, largely due to robust sales of its MI300 AI chip.

This product competes directly with Nvidia’s AI graphics processors, and AMD has sold over $1 billion of these chips since their launch in the fourth quarter of 2023.

Gaming and client segments

The company’s gaming segment, however, did not perform as well, with revenues declining 48% year-over-year to $922 million.

This drop was attributed to lower chip sales for game consoles and PCs, including those used in Sony’s Playstation 5.

In contrast, AMD’s client segment, which includes processors for chips and PCs, reported a substantial 85% annual increase to $1.4 billion, signaling a recovery from last year’s PC market slump.

Challenges in the embedded segment
