Advanced Micro Devices shares fell for a second-straight day after the firm's new Ryzen line of desktop processors disappointed gamers.
"The [Ryzen] 1800X lags behind its Intel counterparts in gaming, regardless of whether it's running at the same clock speed or higher, " Mark Walton wrote in technology review site Ars Technica on Thursday.
PCWorld, PC Gamer also criticized the new processors for poor gaming performance.
Shares of AMD closed down more than 6 percent Friday after falling 7 percent Thursday. Intel shares closed little-less-than one percent lower Friday.
John Taylor, a spokesman for Advanced Micro Devices and vice president at Worldwide Marketing, told CNBC: "There are a few gaming oriented sites that have expressed some disappointment over gaming performance at low resolution. This is a matter of optimization by those games on Ryzen. The CPU performance shines through strongly in every CPU test reviewers have run."
AMD released its Ryzen 7 lineup Thursday with 3 models: an 1800x, 1700x, and 1700 whose prices range from $329 to $499. The semiconductor company announced the product line back in December.
Outside of gaming, Ars Technica's Walton said, that "for the most part, Ryzen is highly competitive with Intel's eight-core i7-6900K."
On Jan. 31, the company posted a lower-than-expected fourth-quarter loss of 1 cent per share on revenue of $1.11 billion. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expected a loss of 2 cents per share on revenue of $1.07 billion.
The company gave high expectations for the first quarter, estimating an 18 percent boost in revenue.
