Market research by iSuppli indicates AMD gained 2.5% marketshare in Q2 2007 and that Intel lost 2.1%, compared to Q1 2007. Intel now has 78.8% of the market, AMD 13.4% and the other 7.8% is split between several smaller CPU makers.
Meanwhile, Intel in the second quarter suffered a two percentage point decrease in revenues share, giving it a still-commanding 78.8% portion of the market.
This was far greater than the preliminary 0.5% increase for Intel and the 0.5% increase for AMD iSuppli estimated in July.
AMD's second-quarter advance brought to an end a period of decline for the company that saw its market share dwindle by nearly six points from 16.8% in the third quarter of 2006 to 10.9% in the first quarter of 2007.
AMD's rise in the second quarter was due to increased shipments for notebook, desktop, and server processors, despite a decline in the overall CPU average selling prices (ASPs).
Intel too suffered a decline in its CPU ASPs, which spurred the decrease in its revenues share during the quarter.
