AMD wants 50% of GPU market by end of the year

Posted on Tuesday, March 11 2008 @ 19:27:38 CET by

AMD has notified its partners that it's aiming to supply 50% of the discrete graphics card market by the end of this year, up from 35%. The chip firm also shared some more info about its upcoming processors:
AMD has recently notified its partners that the company expects its share in the discrete graphics card market to rise after its next generation RV770 GPU shows up in the end of the second quarter, growing from the current 35% to reach 50% by the end of this year, according to sources at graphics card makers.

AMD has completed DVT sampling for the B3 stepping Phenom processors, and related triple-core and quad-core parts are expected to appear in the channel in April, AMD stated at a recent media event in Taipei, adding that its 45nm quad-core processors, Shanghai for servers and Deneb for desktops, are both on schedule to launch in the second half of 2008.

AMD's 45nm processors have already entered EVT testing, according to sources at motherboard makers, who added they expect to receive samples by August or September.

AMD is planning to launch a notebook processor family codenamed Swift in the second half of 2009. The processors will come in two versions – dual-core Black Swift and single-core White Swift – both will incorporate a graphics processor. Swift and its companion chipset will form the Shrike platform and will support DDR3 memory, noted sources at notebook makers.
