In an investors earnings call for Q1 2021, Dr. Lisa Su has stated that Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card production is ramping up and is very pleased with the success of their Ryzen commercial notebooks. This comes after more than two quarters of difficulties providing supply for both AMD Ryzen and Radeon products where the company has been unable to keep up with the apparent demand.
The investor call details the issues encountered by AMD and the steps taken to resolve to problems. Improvements are expected and production for GPUs are expected to increase over the next few months.
And we’re well-positioned for further growth as we have tripled our commercial notebook design wins with the largest OEMs this year. In graphics, revenue increased by a strong double-digit percentage year over year and sequentially, led by channel sales growth as revenue from our high-end Radeon 6000 GPUs more than doubled from the prior quarter. We introduced our Radeon 6700 XT desktop GPU with leadership 1440p gaming performance in March and are on track for the first notebooks featuring our leading-edge mobile RDNA 2 architecture to launch later this quarter. We expect Radeon 6000 Series GPU sales to grow significantly over the coming quarters as we ramp production. – Dr. Lisa Su, AMD CEO
