AMD is doing better in the graphics card market but the CPU market is not looking too good. X-bit Labs cites figures from a new report by IDC that states AMD continues to lose marketshare to Intel.
In terms of processor vendor shares, on an overall unit basis, Intel earned 79.7% market share, a gain of 0.9%. AMD earned 19.7%, a loss of 1.2%, quarter-over-quarter. Via Technologies commanded 0.6% of the PC CPU market. A little less than a year ago AMD’s market share was 23.5%, whereas Intel commanded 76.3%, which means that AMD is continuing to gradually lose its market share.

By form factor, in the mobile PC processor segment, Intel earned 86.5% share, a gain of 1.3% and AMD earned 12.6%, a loss of 1.9%. Via Technologies, based in Taiwan, earned 0.9% share, a gain of 0.7%.
