AMD's GPU shipment volumes are now reported to have exceeded 500 million. This figure, which encompasses discrete and integrated graphics, beat corresponding numbers for Intel and NVIDIA. This success is projected to benefit even more from future projects such as a new partnership with Samsung.
Deirdre O'Donnell,

The group Jon Peddie Research (JPR) has published a report on findings that AMD has shipped approximately 553 million chipsets between 2013 and 2019. This success was derived from the popularity of Radeon and Zen-based desktop and notebook APUs and GPUs over those 6 years. However, JPR concludes that it was sparked by the initial ability to secure the contracts to power PlayStation and Xbox series consoles.

Those devices accounted for 20% and 9% of AMD's shipments over the period studied. However, mobile APUs took the greatest share (23%), followed by discrete graphics (dGPUs) for the same platform and desktop dGPUs at 18%. Desktop APUs rounded them out at 12%.

JPR stated that the volume of these chipsets in total were superior to those of NVIDIA and Intel. However, when broken back down into the integrated (iGPUs) and dGPUs categories, both of those rivals were ahead of AMD.

Nevertheless, the latter is expected to have even greater success in the future. This will be influenced in part by new endeavors such as the mobile graphics the company is currently said to be working on in conjunction with Samsung.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
