Default AMD is being propped up by consoles

AMD is expecting to see its bottom line boosted by good Xbox and PS4 sales over the recent holiday season. Both contain AMD's CPUs and GPUs.

Console gaming has been taking a back seat over the last two years to PC gaming. PC gaming software sales in 2015 totalled $23.5 billion compared to $22.5 billion for console gaming software. On the hardware side, PC gaming hardware sales totalled $21.5 billion vs. 11 billion for console hardware sales.

AMD hopes that getting its chips into every PS4 and Xbox would tie it over until the arrival of Zen, or Godot, proved unfounded, more from bad luck than anything else.

All that is appearing to change. Sony has just released some impressive PS4 sales numbers. In fact the outfit has been reporting cumulative PS4 sales since it launched the console in November 2013. It says that it has sold 35.9 million PS4 consoles since its launch, up this is an increase from 30.2 million units sold by late November. So that means in the holiday season, Sony flogged 5.7 million PS4 consoles during the holiday season and each of these had an AMD chip inside. Next year the PS4 is expected to perform even better in 2016.
