(Reuters) - Chipmaker Advanced Micro Devices Inc reported a better-than-expected 23.2 percent increase in quarterly revenue, helped by higher demand for graphics chips used in gaming consoles.
AMD forecast revenue for the fourth quarter to decrease 18 percent from the third quarter, plus or minus 3 percent, which translates into a range of $1.03 billion-$1.11 billion.
Analysts on average were expecting revenue of $1.06 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
The company's shares were down nearly 4 percent at $6.70 in after-hours trading.
AMD processors are being used in Microsoft Corp's Xbox One S, launched on Aug. 2, and Sony Corp's PS4 Pro gaming consoles, expected to be launched on Nov. 10.
Net loss widened to $406 million, or 50 cents per share, in the third quarter ended Sept. 24 from $197 million, or 25 cents per share, a year earlier.
