AMD is slipping ahead of earnings (AMD)

With the launch of its Ryzen CPUs earlier this year, Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD) is now sufficiently competitive with Intel to steal market share from the lumbering giant.

Are Threadripper's extra dies unlockable?

Gaming variants of AMD's Vega GPU are expected to launch later this year, and its EPYC server chips will be ramping up as the company aims to steal share away from Intel.

The gap is most pronounced in multi-threaded workloads where the 1500X is able to bring its extra threads to bear.

Another possibility could be that AMD is planning for future 32-core Threadripper CPUs.

Ahead of Intel 2Q 2017 earnings, the chip maker's stock tipped higher on Wednesday during regular trading hours, closing up 0.23% at $34.75. In terms of single threaded performance, gaming performance, and performance per watt the 1500X and 1300X are essentially the same.

The Ryzen 3 1300X CPU was the second strongest performer on the Ashes of the Singularity test at 1080p and extreme settings, rendering the game at 46.8 fps (the lesser Ryzen 3 1200 saw a drop to 42.63 fps). Cryptocurrency mining demand also drove strong demand.

Tech analysts and enthusiasts are still in awe after AMD CEO Lisa Su showed the official packaging of the Ryzen Threadripper. The on-year difference in operating loss was related to stock-based compensation charges and a US$7 million restructuring credit in the second quarter of 2016. These impressive growth rates have helped the stock earn a "B" grade for Growth in our Style Scores system, and they've contributed to Nvidia's status as one of the most popular growth picks on Wall Street right now. In 2017 alone, NVDA has soared nearly 60%, making it one of the year's hottest stocks.

AMD posted a GAAP net loss of $16 million, or $0.02 per share.

AMD reported Q2 non-GAAP EPS of 2 cents a share on total revenue of $1.22 billion, comfortably beating analyst estimates of a 1 cent loss on revenue of $1.157 billion.

AMD expects to produce a non-GAAP profit for the full year, with a non-GAAP gross margin of 34%.

Despite this, Pajjuri doesn't see AMD or its Ryzen chips as a serious threat for Intel.

Prices for the AMD Ryzen 3 processors start at $109. Priced at $999 and $339 respectively, these two processors are a way for Intel to protect its high end line up with a bit of innovation and updates to existing architectures.

The countdown has started as #AMD is set to release the much-awaited Threadripper X399 high-end desktop (HEDT) processor on August 10. We don't know yet, but expect to find out soon. The jump mainly is a result of an expectation that the third quarter revenue will increase about 15 percent year over year. The 24% QoQ revenue growth also outperformed the management's guidance of 17% (+/- 3%) QoQ growth in revenue.

The four-core, four thread part is intended to compete against Intel's Core i3 and the Pentium G4560.
