AMD's marketshare 0.4% up

Posted on Monday, November 05 2007 @ 01:10:00 CET by

Mercury Research released a report on the x86 processor market in the third quarter of this year. The firm found AMD increased it marketshare a bit at the expense of VIA and Transmeta while Intel's marketshare remained pretty static.
“Clearly, there are a lot of different dynamics to what is going on in the market. There is really strong consumer demand and there are some indications that we might be at the beginning of a corporate refresh cycle,” said Dean McCarron, the head of Mercury Research.

Mercury Research, a market tracking firm, said that shipments of x86 central processing units for desktops, laptops and servers increased by 15% in Q3 2007 with mobile microprocessors leading the market with 26% sequential sales growth. The numbers are inline with estimates by IDC market consulting firm. Even though in general the split between AMD, Intel and other markets of chips did not change substantially, it is remarkable that the Sunnyvale, California-based actually managed to grab a part of the market.
Intel now has 76.2% of the market, AMD 23.3% and the other 0.5% is split between small firms like Transmeta and VIA.
