AMD announced earnings per share of 73 cents on revenue of $4.31 billion. Analysts polled by anticipated EPS of 66 cents on revenue of $4.11 billion.

“Third Gen EPYC processor shipments ramped significantly in the quarter as our data center sales more than doubled year-over-year,” the company said.

For the fourth quarter 2021, AMD expects revenue to be approximately $4.5 billion, plus or minus $100 million, an increase of approximately 39% year-over-year and approximately 4% quarter-over-quarter. Consensus estimates for Q4 revenue was $4.25 billion. 

“The quarter-over-quarter increase is expected to be driven by higher server and semi-custom revenue,” it added.
