Earnings Outlook: Advanced Micro Devices this week gets to showcase how its new smaller-architecture chip impacted its business: AMD earnings preview

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. this week gets to showcase how its new smaller-architecture chip impacted its business, hot on the heels of a positive earnings report from its rival Intel Corp.

AMD AMD, +3.12% is scheduled to report third-quarter earnings after the close of trading on Tuesday.

AMD’s report follows Intel Corp.’s INTC, +8.10% report last week, where Intel shares rallied after the chip maker topped Wall Street estimates and gave a better-than-expected outlook, as opposed to chip makers Texas Instruments Inc.TXN, +1.77% and Xilinx Inc.XLNX, +1.91%, which were less optimistic.

Cowen analyst Matthew Ramsay, who has an outperform rating and a $40 price target, said there’s been a lot of “noise” since AMD’s last earnings report with the company’s Aug. 7 release of its “Rome” chip, which got picked up by Alphabet Inc.’s GOOG, +0.33%GOOGL, +0.41% Google Cloud Platform.

“Combined with announced partners Amazon AMZN, -1.09%, Microsoft MSFT, +0.56%, Baidu BIDU, +0.17% and Tencent 700, -0.75%, we believe this has the potential to allow AMD to quickly capture x86 server share against Intel’s roadmap that may need Sapphire Rapids in 2021 to get fully back on track,” Ramsay said. “Sapphire Rapids” is the code name for either Intel’s new refinement of its 10-nanometer process or its new 7-nanometer process.

In chip parlance, nanometers, or nm, refers to the size of the transistors that go on a computer chip, with the general rule being that smaller transistors are faster and more efficient in using power. Rome uses a 7-nm process, while Intel has struggled to bring its 10-nm process chip to the market.

“We believe 7nm Rome has the technical merits to offer a superior TCO in many server workloads,” Ramsay said. “Along with socket compatibility with Naples, a consistent roadmap, and deep customer engagements, we believe this has renewed AMD as a viable second source to Intel in a market that has been starved for competition.”
