AMD sees growth in all computing segments

Posted on Friday, Dec 15 2006 @ 16:25 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
AMD announced a steady growth in marketshare in all aspects of its processor business since Q3 2004.
As a whole, the company has seen its overall PC marketshare rise from 15.9% in Q3 2004 to 23.3% in Q3 2006. AMD has also seen steady, gradual increases in marketshare in its mobile and desktop business in the past two years.

This big news, however, comes from AMD's server business. This jump in marketshare on the server side was no doubt buoyed by the popularity of Opteron processors and will only grow with AMD's recent pact with PC giant Dell Computer. AMD saw its share of the server market double from 6% in Q3 2004 to 12.6% in 2005. Its share nearly doubled again to 24.4% in Q3 2006.
