AMD Lisa SuShares of Advanced Micro Devices plunged roughly 8% in after hours trading on Monday after the chipmaker reported its Q1 financial results. 

AMD reported a smaller quarterly loss on Monday, fueled by demand for its latest Ryzen processors and its graphics chips.

The company's net loss narrowed to $73 million, or 8 cents per share, in the first quarter ended April 1, from $109 million, or 14 cents per share, a year earlier.

Revenue rose 18.3 percent to $984 million, roughly in line with the $984.4 million expected by Wall Street analysts.

AMD is looking to re-establish itself as a viable competitor in the global semiconductor market through its Ryzen processors, targeting the personal computer market, and its Radeon and FirePro graphics processors.
