As reported by Tom’s Hardware with a reference to semiconductor analyst Sravan Kundojjala, last year Sony became AMD’s largest customer: in 2022 it sold $3.776 billion worth of chips to Sony, accounting for 16% of the company’s revenue for the year, according to its declaration to the US Securities and Exchange Commission. This became possible due to the increase in sales of the PlayStation 5 and the increase of its advantage over the competition.
The gaming division was also reported to be AMD’s biggest source of profit, with sales of Xbox Series X|S chips also strong. According to VGChartz, a total of almost 32 million PS5s and more than 20 million Microsoft consoles of the latest generation have been sold. So in 2022, AMD’s gaming division (in addition to chips for consoles, also works on GPUs for discrete video cards and laptops) received $6.8 billion in revenue and $953 million in profit — and this despite the fact that GPU sales have declined in recent quarters.
