AMD Is Leaving Intel in the Dust, and It Isn't Done Yet

Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD) has been in a thorn in Intel's (NASDAQ: INTC) side in the central processing unit (CPU) market since the arrival of the former's Ryzen processors, which originally hit the market in March 2017. AMD held just under 18% of the CPU market at the end of 2016 before Ryzen arrived. Other reliable estimates from the likes of video gaming platform Steam also suggest that AMD has been consistently chipping away at Intel's CPU dominance.
