AMD Confronts Steep Q1 2023 Profit Reduction as Chip Sales Tumble 65%

Published by


AMD, like its rivals Intel and NVIDIA, has experienced a substantial revenue dip in Q1 2023. The company reported a revenue of $5.3 billion, marking a 9% decrease compared to the same timeframe in 2022. 

It is worth mentioning that AMD's acquisition of Xilinx the previous year could have influenced these figures. Regrettably, this revenue reduction has heavily impacted AMD's financial performance. The company's operating income nosedived 115% to a negative $145 million, while its net income dropped by 118%, culminating in total losses of $139 million. In comparison, Q1 2022 recorded an operating income of $951 million and a profit of $786 million.

On a positive note, AMD's data center market remained steady, with revenues in this segment maintaining a flat year-over-year rate at $1.295 billion. Despite a 65% drop in profits, Treasurer Jean Hu emphasized that data center and integrated segments contributed to over 50% of Q1 revenue, shedding some light on the situation.

Conversely, AMD confronted difficulties in chip sales for desktop and mobile processors, experiencing a 65% revenue decline to $739 million. This marks the lowest revenue in recent history and poses a concern for AMD's leadership, even as competitors face similar issues.

In the gaming sector, AMD managed to generate $1.8 billion in revenue, a 6% year-over-year reduction, a less severe decrease compared to other segments. The company credits this to SoC sales for gaming consoles, which compensated for the drop in GPU sales.

AMD remains optimistic about a stronger Q2 2023, with an anticipated revenue of $5.3 billion, signifying a 19% drop from the previous year. The company envisions a recovery in the latter half of the year, with modest growth projected for general consumer trade and data center and server clients.
