AMD’s revenue for the third quarter of 2013 was $1.46 billion and net income was$48 million, the company said on Thursday.
The company has achieved 26 percent sequential revenue growth driven by its semi-custom business and is committed to generating approximately 50 percent of revenue from high-growth markets over the next two years.
“AMD returned to profitability and generated free cash flow in the third quarter as we continued to successfully execute the strategic transformation plan we outlined a year ago,” said Rory Read, AMD president and CEO.
Computing Solutions segment revenue decreased 6 percent sequentially and decreased 15 percent year-over-year. The sequential and year-over-year declines were due to decreased notebook and chipset unit shipments, partially offset by an increase in desktop unit shipments.
Operating income was $22 million, compared with operating income of $2 million in Q2 2013 and an operating loss of $114 million in Q3 2012. The Q3 2012 operating loss included an inventory write-down of approximately $100 million primarily consisting of first generation A-Series accelerated processing units (APUs).
Microprocessor Average Selling Price (ASP) was flat sequentially and decreased year-over-year.
Graphics and Visual Solutions (GVS) is comprised of graphics processing units (GPUs), including professional graphics, as well as semi-custom products and development and game console royalties.
GVS segment revenue increased 110 percent sequentially and increased 96 percent year-over-year driven largely by our semi-custom business. GPU revenue declined sequentially and year-over-year. In the third quarter customers began transitioning to their products late in the quarter.
