Effective July 1, 2014, AMD reorganized into two business groups, one focused on the traditional PC market and the second focused on adjacent high-growth opportunities.

Accordingly, AMD has two reportable segments:

  • Computing and Graphics, which primarily includes desktop and notebook processors and chipsets, discrete GPUs and professional graphics; and
  • Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom, which primarily includes server and embedded processors, dense servers, semi-custom SoC products, engineering services and royalties.

Quarterly Financial Summary

  • Gross margin was 35 percent in Q3 2014.
    • Gross margin was flat sequentially and included a $27 million, or 2 percent benefit, from revenue related to technology licensing.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $938 million at the end of the quarter, essentially flat from the prior quarter.
  • Total debt at the end of the quarter was $2.20 billion.
  • Computing and Graphics segment revenue decreased 6 percent sequentially and decreased 16 percent year-over-year. The sequential decrease was primarily driven by lower chipset and GPU sales. The year-over-year decline was primarily due to decreased notebook processor and chipset sales.
    • Operating loss was $17 million, compared with an operating loss of $6 million in Q2 2014 and operating income of $9 million in Q3 2013. The sequential decrease was primarily driven by lower revenue while the year-over-year decrease was primarily driven by lower revenue partially offset by lower operating expenses.
    • Client average selling price (ASP) increased sequentially and year-over-year primarily driven by a richer mix of notebook processor sales.
    • GPU ASP decreased sequentially due to lower desktop GPU ASP and increased year-over-year.
  • Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment revenue increased 6 percent sequentially and 21 percent year-over-year primarily driven by increased sales of semi-custom SoCs.
    • Operating income was $108 million compared with $97 million in Q2 2014 and $92 million in Q3 2013. The sequential and year-over-year increase was primarily due to increased sales of semi-custom SoCs.
    • Embedded revenue grew by double digits on a percentage basis sequentially.
