CEO Pat Gelsinger said at a recent conference that Intel’s outlook now sees the company continuing to lose market share in data center processors through at least 2023. The company won’t begin to regain market share until 2025 or 2026.
Intel said not to let AMD take 15-20% of the market
Recall that in 2018, after the release of Epyc first-generation server CPUs, Intel announced that its main mission in this area was to prevent AMD from taking 15-20% market share. As late as the end of the year, analysts predicted that AMD would own about 16 percent of the market and that the company’s share would grow to 18 percent by 2024.
Epyc share AMD
Of course, in the context of Intel’s share, it’s a very small share, but AMD’s share was only a few percent just before Epyc launched.

Intel boss also said that the Sapphire Rapids server CPU will outperform AMD’s solution, but not enough to slow down the competition. However, it’s unclear how Intel’s 56-core CPUs will compete with next-generation 96- and 128-core Epycs, as Intel’s originally planned Sapphire Rapids are long gone.
