AMD aiming to triple their server market share

Posted on Thursday, August 05 2004 @ 01:44:15 CEST by

The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based chipmaker aims to be in 10 percent of the so-called x86 servers by the end of the year, said Ben Williams, vice president of the server/workstation microprocessor business unit, in an interview Tuesday at LinuxWorld Conference and Expo. Earlier, the company's goal was to account for about 6 percent to 7 percent of the x86 servers shipped by the end of the year, he said.
