Over the last three years, AMD has become a force to be reckoned with in the high performance computing market. The recent announcements by AMD that its future AMD EPYC™ CPUs and AMD Radeon Instinct™ GPUs will be used to power the El Capitan supercomputer at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in 2023 and the Frontier supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in 2021, demonstrate that the chipmaker may be able to effectively compete against other vendors for inclusion in some of the most powerful HPC systems in the world.
Taiwan-based TSMC, the world's largest chip foundry, recently announced (https://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1332869) that high performance computing (HPC) has supplanted smart phones as the most important driver of its business, although presumably not yet the largest financially.

Hyperion Research recently closed the books on the 2018 year for the high performance computing market in our market tracking database, the QView, as well as the Country Level Database, which tracks the HPC markets in 26 countries around the world as well as 13 different verticals. 2018 was another high growth year, with the server market reaching $13.7 billion, and the total market (servers, storage, software and technical support service) totaling more than $27.6 billion. The market has continued to grow at a steady rate of around 6% for the past 5 years.
