Tiger Lake processors pulling Intel to the bottom? Analysts predict an increase in AMD share in the laptop market

Analysts of the well-known resource DigiTimes shared their views on transforming the shares of Intel and AMD in the laptop market. In general terms, Intel will continue to lose ground, while AMD, on the contrary, will increase.

Intel’s main problem is with Tiger Lake processors. Those were touted as almost revolutionary, but in fact they provide performance comparable to that of AMD Ryzen 4000 processors. For example, here are the data comparing the performance of Ryzen 7 4800U and Core i7-1185G7 in games.

And here is a comparison of the performance of these CPUs in office and web applications:

It is noteworthy that the 15-watt Ryzen 4800U is on average on par with both the 15-watt Core i7-1185G7 and the 28-watt one. But it should be taken into account that the Intel reference platform took part in the tests, the results of which may differ from the serial products.

Intel promised that the integrated Xe graphics in Tiger Lake will allow playing games on laptops without discrete graphics cards, in fact, Iris Xe has problems even with the launch of some games, not to mention the full gameplay. At the same time, AMD will have Ryzen 5000 mobile APUs early next year – with improved graphics and CPU on the Zen 3 architecture.

Based on these considerations, analysts make a disappointing forecast for Intel: its market share will continue to fall. If AMD secured up to 25% of the mobile processor market in the third quarter of this year, then in the first half of the next it may have 30%. Accordingly, Intel’s share will drop from 75% to 70%.
