DigiTimes reports AMD aims to ship 26 million desktop processors in the second half of this year, bringing its projected desktop CPU shipments for 2006 to 46 million units.
AMD shipped 10 and 9.5 million desktop CPUs, respectively, in the first and second quarters of this year, the sources noted.

AMD's 2006 projected desktop CPU shipments, to be realized with rising demand for AM2-socket CPUs and a production ramp from its Singapore-based contract chipmaker Chartered Semiconductor, will account for 32% of the global desktop PC market of 141 million units as projected by market research firms, said the sources.
