Well there's not been as much crypto-mania as of late so it's not that surprising i guess.
PS5 and XBone2 announcements pushing down sales of the old consoles
No gaming GPUs (Deep discounting Vega with its comically overpriced HBM2 isn't good for financial results)
The delay in getting Zen2 out of the door due to the forced shift in manufacturer
Could have been much worse than a 13% drop
Need more breakdown, one suspects cpu sales have been growing strongly and gpu sales have fallen off a crypto mining cliff but who knows?
By the time the next quarter comes the 3000 series sales would give a more accurate picture. Plus if the new consoles announced will be running with zen chips in then i think the future looks bright for them.
Zen 2, AIB 5700 cards, later releases of proper high-end Navi (and probably low-end, too), B550 mobo's - there's still plenty of good stuff coming from AMD.
And there's X590 and X599 boards coming.
And I thought X570 was pricey
When the "competition" is a £2700 28 core and a £1400 board to go with it then AMD won't have any reason to hold back with the prices of Ripper and X599.
I wouldn't be surprised if one or more boards for Zen2 TR ends up making the ROG Dominus Extreme look cheap tbh.
I guess it just reflects the competition AMD is again now, motherboard manufacturers willing to invest their top tier work in them.
