Mitch Haws

Thank you, John, and welcome to AMD's Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Financial Results Conference Call. By now you should have had the opportunity to review a copy of our earnings press release and the accompanying slides. If you've not had the chance to review these materials, they can be found on the Investor Relations page of

We will refer primarily to non-GAAP financial measures during today's call. The full non-GAAP to GAAP reconciliations are available in today's press release and the slides posted on our website. Participants on today's call are Dr. Lisa Su, our Chair and Chief Executive Officer; and Jean Hu, our Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer. This is a live call and will be replayed via webcast on our website.

Before we begin, I would like to note that Mark Papermaster, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer will attend the Bernstein Tech, Media, Telecom & Consumer One-on-One Forum on Tuesday, February 28th; and Jean Hu, Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer will attend the Wolfe Research Semiconductor Conference on Tuesday, February 15th and the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference on March 5th.

Today's discussion contains forward-looking statements based on current beliefs, assumptions and expectations, speak only as of today and as such, involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from our current expectations. Please refer to the cautionary statement in our press release for more information on factors that could cause actual results to differ materially.

With that, I'll hand the call over to Lisa. Lisa?

Thank you, Mitch, and good afternoon to all those listening in today. We finished 2023 strong as Data Center sales accelerated significantly throughout the year, despite the mixed demand environment.

As a result, we delivered record Data Center segment annual revenue and strong top-line and bottom-line growth in the fourth quarter, driven by the ramp of Instinct AI accelerators and robust demand for EPYC server CPUs across cloud, enterprise and AI customers.

Looking at our financial results. Fourth quarter revenue increased 10% year-over-year to $6.2 billion, driven by a significant double-digit percentage growth in our Data Center and Client segments. On a full year basis, annual revenue declined 4% to $22.7 billion as record Data Center and Embedded segment annual revenue was offset by lower Client and Gaming segment revenue.

Importantly, Data Center and Embedded segment annual revenue grew by $1.2 billion and accounted for more than 50% of revenue in 2023 as we gained server share, launched our next-generation Instinct AI accelerators and maintained our position as the industry's largest provider of adaptive computing solutions.

Turning to the fourth quarter business results. Data Center segment revenue grew 38% year-over-year and 43% sequentially to a record $2.3 billion. Server CPU and Data Center GPU sales both set quarterly and annual revenue records as sales of our Data Center products accelerated throughout the year. We gained server CPU revenue share in the quarter, driven by significant double-digit percentage growth in 4th Gen EPYC Processor revenue and demand for our 3rd Gen EPYC Processor portfolio.

In Cloud, while the overall demand environment remained soft, server CPU revenue increased year-over-year and sequentially as North American hyperscalers expanded 4th Gen EPYC Processor deployments to power their internal workloads and public instances.

Amazon, Alibaba, Google, Microsoft and Oracle brought more than 55 AMD-powered AI, HPC and general-purpose cloud instances into preview or general availability in the fourth quarter. Exiting 2023, there were more than 800 EPYC CPU based public cloud instances available. We expect this number to grow in 2024 based on the leadership performance, efficiency and features of our EPYC CPU portfolio.

In Enterprise, sales accelerated by a significant double-digit percentage in the quarter as we built momentum with Forbes 2000 customers. We closed multiple wins with large financial, energy, automotive, retail, technology and pharmaceutical companies, positioning us well for continued growth, based on expanded production deployments planned for 2024.

A growing number of customers are adopting EPYC CPUs for inferencing workloads, where our leadership throughput performance deliver significant advantages on smaller models like Llama 7B, as well as the power head nodes in large training and inference clusters.

Looking ahead, customer excitement for our upcoming Turin family of EPYC Processors is very strong. Turin is a drop-in replacement for existing 4th Gen EPYC platforms that extends our performance, efficiency and TCO leadership with the addition of our next-gen Zen 5 core, new memory expansion capabilities and higher core counts.

因此,我们在第四季度交付了创纪录的数据中心业务年度收入,并实现了强劲的营收和利润增长,这主要得益于Instinct AI 加速器的推出和云计算、企业和人工智能客户对 EPYC 服务器 CPU 的强劲需求。


重要的是,数据中心和嵌入式市场的年收入增长了12亿美元,占到了2023年收入的50%以上,因为我们获得了服务器市场份额,推出了下一代的Instinct AI加速器,并且保持着作为行业最大的自适应计算解决方案提供商的地位。


在云计算方面,尽管整体需求环境仍然疲软,但服务器 CPU 收入同比和环比均增长,因为北美超大规模数据中心扩大了第四代 EPYC 处理器的部署,以支持其内部工作负载和公共实例。

亚马逊阿里巴巴、谷歌、微软和甲骨文在第四季度推出了55多种基于AMD的人工智能、高性能计算和通用云实例,供预览或一般可用。到2023年底,已有超过800个基于 EPYC CPU 的公有云实例可用。我们预计基于 EPYC CPU 系列的领先性能、效率和功能,这一数字将在2024年继续增长。


越来越多的客户正在采用 EPYC CPU 进行推理工作负载,我们在较小的模型如 Llama 7B 上的领先吞吐性能为客户带来了显著优势,并且在大型训练和推理集群中的功率主节点上也有明显的优势。

展望未来,客户对我们即将推出的 Turin 家族的 EPYC 处理器表现出非常强烈的兴奋。Turin 是现有第四代 EPYC 平台的即插即用替代品,通过引入我们的下一代 Zen 5 核心、全新的内存扩展功能和更高的核心数量,延续了我们在性能、效率和总拥有成本方面的领先地位。
