Intel gains server share, AMD gains on the notebook market

Posted on Wednesday, November 01 2006 @ 00:57:29 CET by

A new report from Mercury Research shows processor shipments in Q3 2006 weren't as bad as initially feared. During the third quarter AMD and Intel somewhat swapped roles. Intel gained marketshare in the server market while AMD increased its presence in the notebook processor market:
AMD had been making strides in the server market for several quarters, while Intel dominated the notebook market. But momentum swung the other way in the third quarter, with Intel regaining market share in server processors while AMD's notebook processor shipments surged, said Dean McCarron, an analyst with Mercury Research.

Overall, Intel shipped 76.1 percent of all desktop, notebook and server processors that use the x86 instruction set during the quarter. AMD owned 23.3 percent of that market. AMD's overall momentum continued; a year ago, Intel had 80.7 percent of the market while AMD held 17.7 percent. Mercury Research measures the number of chips shipped into distribution channels, not the breakdown of how processors appear in end systems.

Despite the horrible second quarter suffered by Intel and AMD, third-quarter shipments weren't as bad as some had thought, McCarron said. Prices, however, are still down significantly. The decline was not as bad as in the second quarter, but it was still notable, he said, declining to provide specific numbers.
