The 10 Main Products That AMD is Manufacturing

1. Ryzen Desktop Processors: AMD’s answer to Intel’s Core processors they come with great performance for gaming, content creation and everyday computing. Ryzen 3, 5, 7 and 9 series offer a variety of core counts, price points and features that most people looking for desktop CPUs find attractive.

2. EPYC Server Processors: They are designed to fulfill the demands of data centers and enterprise environments. EPYC processors come with high core counts, support for massive amounts of RAM and advanced security features. The EPYC series is AMD’s attempt to snatch some market share from Intel’s server CPU monopoly where they’re still holding about 80% market share.

3. Ryzen Threadripper Processors: These are aimed at gamers and professionals who need extreme processing power. Threadripper CPUs are well known for their incredibly high core counts (up to 64 cores), making them ideal for demanding tasks like video editing, 3D rendering and 4K gaming.

4. Radeon Graphics Cards: AMD’s lineup of graphics cards that compete directly with Nvidia’s offerings. Their current RX 6000 series caters to a wide range of gamers from budget to high end performance gamers who want to play in 4K at 3 digit FPS.

5. Ryzen Mobile Processors: Designed for laptops, these processors have a balanced performance and power efficiency. Ryzen chips are good for thin and light laptops and gaming laptops. AMD has been trying for years to compete with Intel’s mobile CPUs and recently they seemed to have taken quite a significant market share from Intel but the trend seems to be reversing as of 2024.

6. Instinct Accelerators: AMD’s line of accelerators are aimed at high performance computing (HPC) and AI tasks. Instinct cards target supercomputers, scientific research and complex data analysis in enterprise settings.

7. Embedded Processors: AMD offers specialized processors for various embedded applications. These power industrial devices, medical equipment, networking appliances and more.

8. AMD Xilinx FPGAs: After acquiring Xilinx, AMD expanded into Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). These versatile chips can be reprogrammed after manufacturing for specific workloads, making them great for prototyping and specialized hardware acceleration.

9. Athlon Processors: AMD’s budget desktop CPUs designed for basic computing tasks and light work. These compete with Intel’s Pentium and Celeron offerings or more recently named “Intel Processor”.

10. A Series Processors: Formerly known as APUs, A Series processors combine CPU cores with integrated Radeon graphics on a single chip. A Series comes with a cheap solution for basic laptops and small desktops.
