Dr. Lisa Su, president and CEO of Advanced Micro Devices, said this about the earnings results.

“We delivered strong second quarter results, led by record notebook and server processor sales as Ryzen and EPYC revenue more than doubled from a year ago. Despite some macroeconomic uncertainty, we are raising our full-year revenue outlook as we enter our next phase of growth driven by the acceleration of our business in multiple markets.”

Advanced Micro Devices also updates its outlook for 2020 in the earnings report. It now expects revenue to grow by 32% from the previous year. The company attributes this growth to strength in the PC gaming market, as well as from its data center efforts.

AMD stock was up 9.3% after markets closed on Tuesday but was down 2% when normal trading ended.
