AMD gains ground against Intel

Written by


Intel loses 0.3% share
According to IDC beancounters, Intel has lost 0.3 percent of the worldwide processor market share in Q2. Obviously, this bodes well for AMD, as it gained 0.2 percent. VIA also managed to improve its share by 0.3 percent.

At the moment Intel holds 80.7 percent of the overall unit market share, while AMD has 19 percent. Intel also lost some share in the mobile market, but it still has a massive lead over AMD with 86.1 percent compared to AMD’s 13.7 percent. However, AMD gained 1.6 percent and VIA managed to scoop up 0.2 percent.

Intel still dominates the server market with a 93.5 percent share and its share is still growing. In the desktop market Intel grabbed 72.2 percent and gained 0.5 percent. AMD has a 27.3 percent share and a loss of 0.7 percent, which is somewhat surprising considering AMD has quite a few interesting desktop products in its portfolio. However, AMD’s revamped mobile CPU lineup seems to be doing quite well.

Overall mobile processor shipments rose by 6.5 percent sequentially, while server processor sales rose 6.1 percent. Desktop sales dropped by 0.1 percent. It’s obvious that the market is steadily shifting to mobile computing, but desktops still shouldn’t be considered a dying breed.

Whoa, 0.3 percent? :P I know it has its impact, but isn't this close enough to zero to call things "steady"? I guess there's more to say when you look at things closely, I suppose AMD's strong mobile line up compensates for its loss in the desktop and server areas.

It's very nice to hear that VIA's doing okay though, that company has been very silent lately.

I also wonder what things will look like in a year from now, with all the new stuff coming. ARM Eagle, Fusion chips, Sandy Bridge, Bulldozer... Interesting times indeed.

Well the share is usually 80:20 in Intel's favor... So everything basically revolves around a few percent. AMD did quite well in mobile, but they lost a lot of ground in the server market. Hopefully Bulldozer will help out.

And yup, it's really nice to see VIA doing better. I hope they find a niche market to thrive in, i.e. netbooks and tablets...

As do I. I really wouldn't mind a third x86 competitor at all. The netbook market seems excellent for VIA, but their presence there unfortunately isn't great at all.

Wow, 80.7 is a nasty digit for AMD to swallow. It use to be neck and neck back then. Gaining 0.3 percent is a bit sad considering it might go down tomorrow. Now stuff those laptop and netbook with more AMD.
