No longer just the second-place CPU maker behind Intel, in recent years AMD has emerged as one of the most innovative technology companies in the world. Thanks to its highly prized Ryzen processors and Radeon graphics cards, the company announced that its 2018 revenue grew $1.2 billion year-over-year, and its profitability was the highest it had been in seven years.
