EPYC AMD Deal With Amazon Sees Huge Stock Rise

AMD Announce EPYC Deal With Amazon

With the dust settling over yesterdays AMD ‘Next Horizons’ event, I think it’s pretty safe to say that the markets have responded well to the announcements. A major highlight was the reveal of their brand new (and worlds first) 7nm graphics card. An area in which Nvidia seems to be way off the pace.

One of the more subtle announcements, however, was the fact that a deal had been struck with Amazon for the online retailer to start using the EPYC processing technology in their cloud Amazon Web Services business. While this might sound all rather unimpressive on the surface, it reflects a pretty huge coup for AMD. One which, in a report via WCCFTech, saw the AMD share price rocket by over 7%.

Things Have Since Calmed Down!

Overnight, the markets have calmed down a little. Even so, the share price is still up 4% as of this morning. While the deal on the surface may seem rather incidental (particularly compared to the far more exciting news) this reflects one of the biggest deals that Team Red have made in recent history.

With the ever-increasing likelihood that the next generation of consoles will also use AMD technology (albeit, probably Ryzen), AMD is doing what it failed to do for a period of almost 10 years. It’s starting to consistently make big deals with big companies for their products.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, the future is looking very bright for Team Red!
