Tuesday’s Factors and Events
(NASDAQ: AMD) graphics cards has risen sharply in the past year thanks to demand from cryptocurrency miners, allowing it to take a big bite out ofarchrival NVIDIA ‘s GPU (graphics processing unit) market share. In fact, AMD commanded close to 35% of the discrete GPU market at the end of the first quarter of 2018, according to Jon Peddie Research, up from 27.5% in the prior-year period.
But AMD’s crypto-driven boost could be about to end as a dedicated and more affordable mining chip comes into the market, so this isn’t a catalyst that will stay around in the long run. Instead, the multibillion-dollar server chip market looks like the more sustainable catalyst for AMD.
