The chipmaker was able to cut losses significantly but is still $29 million USD in the red even after riding the Ryzen hype train.
Allen Ngo,

AMD's latest quarterly figures are predictably dominated by the launch of new Ryzen CPUs. The chipmaker has reported a sales uptick of 18 percent YoY to $973 million USD. Note that the Q1 2017 period does not include sales of Ryzen 5 CPUs as these launched a few months after the initial Ryzen X series.

The sales of CPUs and GPUs make up $593 million USD of the aforementioned $973 million. Nonetheless, AMD is still reporting an operating loss of $15 million USD likely due to preparations related to the launch of a brand new family of processors. Operating losses were even higher a year earlier at $70 million USD.

Net revenue now sits at $391 million USD from AMD's Embedded and Semi-Custom segment responsible for console processors and servers. Income from this particular arm has fallen to just $9 million USD compared to $16 million in Q1 2016.

While AMD still hasn't managed to return to black, the manufacturer has cut its losses significantly to $29 million USD compared to $68 million a year earlier. AMD is expecting a revenue growth of 12 percent for its upcoming Q2 2017 period despite a drop of 13 percent in its shares to a little over $11 USD following the quarterly report.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
