New data from Northland shows that sales of consumer-grade processors and graphics cards will fall significantly next year. We are talking about the constantly shrinking technology market. In fact, it was claimed that giants such as Apple, NVIDIA and AMD wanted to reduce the orders given to TSMC due to demand concerns. So they have a reason.
The Northland analyst believes that sales for game consoles will increase in 2023. As you know, the chips at the heart of PlayStation and Xbox systems are produced by AMD. So even if there is a contraction on the PC side, things can go well on the console front.
In a note to investors on Friday, analyst Gus Richard wrote that AMD’s processor sales (for desktops and laptops) will decline 6% year-over-year in 2023. Video card revenues will increase by 7% next year. AMD will lose a total of $675 million in sales in 2023 as demand for client systems softens. On the other hand, sales of system chips for Microsoft’s Xbox Series X|S and Sony’s PlayStation 5 will increase by $400 million (up from the previous $740 million estimate) to approximately $1,140 billion next year.
Northland expects EPYC processor sales to continue to rise. The investment firm estimates that AMD’s server revenue will increase by 55% (or $3.1 billion) in 2023 from the previous year. Xilinx FPGA shipments will decrease by 6%.
