Why Intel is struggling Against AMD?

When AMD launched its Zen architecture, CPUs. We did write a blog about, what we could expect from their new lineup and whether team red could finally be a serious competitor to Intel. again If you missed that one you can check it out up here but come on back afterward. Because it's been over a while. Now and it's time to have a look at how Intel has started to struggle against a resurgent AMD. In fact, from late 2017 to late 2018 AMD's market share increased by three-point eight percent on desktop three point four percent in servers and 5.2 percent. In notebooks and seeing as Intel is the player in all of these markets anything. That AMD games reflect a loss for Intel but why exactly is this happening well for a long time AMD, was forced into a strategy of competing.

Performance

Why Intel is struggling Against AMD? On Raw price to performance, as for a long time. That they simply couldn't make chips that could come close to the performance of. Intel's offerings. Forcing them to cut prices. Intel by contrast could to a point anyway charge. whatever they wanted as they didn't have any real competition. at the higher end, this allowed them to make much more margin. all of this changed however with AMD's.

News and architecture and although the rise in legs a bit behind Intel in some performance metrics. Notably gaming AMD having spent. so many years operating on lower margins took a fundamentally different approach to their CPU design. That worked really well to save R&D. They opted for a modular design that could be scaled up and down more easily and then for their higher-end many core products they even used multiple smaller chip lengths to decrease manufacturing waste.


Intel's dominance

Why Intel is struggling Against AMD? This along with aggressively low pricing started. To eat into Intel's dominance. as it turns out users are happy to give up a small amount of performance for significant cost savings. But AMD just making a decent processor. for a change and pricing it competitively. is only part of the story here intel has all had their own very public issues. transitioning to their ten-nanometer manufacturing process. Now according to their original roadmap, they should have been finished years ago.

But they still only have a few ten nanometers. skews on the market but. why does that matter well here's the thing whenever you hear CPU aficionados. Talk about a certain number of nanometers. they're referring to the transistor sizes on the CPU die smaller transistors mean that more of them can be packed onto a given area increasing performance as well as power efficiency.



Nanometre Game

That means that it's very helpful to make your CPUs. on a smaller note. And while AMD hasn't had many issues getting their transistors down. to size, intel has struggled. unlike AMD who contracts its fabrication. Work to facilities that specialize in manufacturing different kinds of processors for a variety of clients. Intel who owns their own fabs is more or less trying to figure everything out. On their own, it also helps to remember that for some time. Now Intel's transistor density has often been higher than that of AMD as numbers like 14 nanometers and 10 nanometers. Are actually just estimations so a 10 nanometer Intel chip might actually have a distance of closer to 8 or so nanometers. between transistors, which makes further shrinkages even more challenging.


10-nanometer problems

Why Intel is struggling Against AMD? So this means that Intel has spent about the last four years trying to squeeze more blood from the stone of their poor 14 nanometers or plus process. with only small incremental performance improvements. to show for it, it's been a period of clear stagnation. Team Blue compared to their impressive track record. For the prior 35 or so years adding insult to injury Intel struggles.

With ten nanometers have also been a contributing factor to the ongoing shortage of Intel CPUs. particularly at the lower end. Because the company has been devoting resources to figuring out the 10-nanometer problem. It hasn't been able to crank out enough 14-nanometer chips to meet the ever-higher demand. for entry-level devices like Chromebooks, and low-power laptops combine. this with that intel places a higher priority.

Qualcomm Entrance

Why Intel is struggling Against AMD? On high-end chips due to their larger profit margins. and AMD has stepped in and sold tons of its own lower-end CPUs. to fill the gap on the subject of Chromebooks. Intel has additional threats on the horizon to Qualcomm best known for its Snapdragon mobile processors. is trying to push a line right now of laptop CPUs optimized for power savings. but while Intel is facing a number of issues at the moment it's important to remember. that they are still the market leader in CPUs.

by a very wide margin with plenty of cash in the bank. so they've got time to turn. it around Intel is exploring GPU technology. quite aggressively and they're also looking at new manufacturing techniques. for both 10 and 7 nanometer chips. it's just not clear when we'll see them in large numbers in the meantime though.


Summary

Why Intel is struggling Against AMD? Intel was ruling the CPU market, both the consumer and server segment, for the last 15 years. But after the launch of 1st gen Ryzen Cpu’s Intel got a true competitor to fight with. Then the launch of 2nd gen Ryzen within a year of 1st gen launch. The 2nd gen Ryzen launch was really a pain in the ass for the Intel techs. What Intel did were launched the 8th gen processors. But 8th gen processors were the re-branding of the 7th gen processors with slightly higher clock speeds. So the net increase in IPC(instructions per clock) was marginal.
