Intel decided to change its strategy in the server market in order to somehow cope with the pressure from AMD. The basis of the new strategy is simply to lower prices.
The source says Intel intends to flood the market with server CPUs at discounted prices instead of sticking to the recommended ones. That being said, Intel has more room to cut prices than AMD. We are talking about our own production facilities, and about cash reserves in general.
At one time, Intel said that it should not allow AMD to take 15-20% of the server market. This has not happened yet, but now AMD holds almost 10% of the market, and in just one last year has increased its position by 4 percentage points.
Whether this will help Intel, we will only be able to find out over time. In the meantime, we should expect more details on how much the company will cut prices.
In less than a year, the situation on the video cards and processors market may improve. The head of AMD spoke about the shortage of chips
AMD CEO Lisa Su expressed her opinion on the duration of the chip shortage. According to her statement, in the first half of 2022, the supply is likely to still be limited.
But already in the second half of next year, the shortage of microcircuits will not be as acute as it is now. How much the situation will change, the head of AMD did not predict, but her vision is still better than that of a number of other specialists who predict improvement only in 2023.
It should be understood that AMD itself does not produce semiconductors, so we are talking about improving the situation in general, which will affect not only AMD, but all other companies as well.
In general, so far most forecasts agree that the situation with the deficit will improve at least in the second half of 2022 or at the beginning of 2023, but no one undertakes to predict when the situation will completely return to normal.
