AMD’s Business Segments
AMD works in 2 major business segments i.e.
- Computing and Graphics
- Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom
Computing and Graphics Segment

- Threadripper HEDT processors
- Ryzen 3 processors

- Radeon Instinct accelerators
- Radeon Vega Frontier Edition graphics card
- Radeon RX 580/ Radeon RX 570 graphics cards
- AMD-semi custom chip under the hood of Xbox One X
Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom Segment
The other concern for the company was the Enterprise, Embedded and Semi-Custom segment, where the operating income was recorded to be $42 million. More R&D investments caused the investments to reach this point. For more improvements in the revenue sector, AMD is confident enough to:
