Canalys: AMD Will Surpass Intel on CPU Performance Next Year

Global technology analyst Canalys, whose clients include Amazon, Google, and Samsung, believes AMD will take the CPU crown in as little as a year: leaked internal training documents aimed at partners suggest the channel should "anticipate the possibility of AMD surpassing Intel on CPU performance in 2019." While no specific product is named, it should be safe to assume Canalys’s prediction revolves around the 7nm Zen 2.

That’s a somewhat bold prediction and suggests that anyone recommending purchasing decisions to their customers ought to seriously consider AMD as a genuine alternative to Intel in both the professional and consumer space. The leaked document has seemingly been taken down, but some slides from the presentation have been saved online.
