Intel and AMD gain quarterly revenue share

Posted on Thursday, October 30 2008 @ 00:57:04 CET by

iSuppli published a report on the global microprocessor revenue in the third quarter. Unlike a report that was published earlier this week by Mercury Research, iSuppli doesn't focus on the marketshare in units but on the revenue.

The research firm reports AMD slightly increased its share of the revenue pie from 12% in Q2 2008 to 12.1% in Q3 2008, while Intel's share rose from 80.1% to 80.4% over the same period. Intel has 80.4 percent of the revenue pie with a unit marketshare of 81.2 percent, which is a lot better than AMD, they have 17.7 percent unit marketshare but only 12.1% of the total revenue.

Compared to the year before, Intel gained 1.7% while AMD lost 1.8%:
The picture changes somewhat when looking at Q3 2008 versus Q3 2007, though. iSuppli says Intel's revenue share ascended 1.7 points from 78.4% in Q3 '07, while AMD's share actually dropped 1.8 points from 13.9% in the same quarter. Matthew Wilkins, a compute platforms analyst for iSuppli, attributes Intel's success chiefly to the chipmaker's strong mobile product line.
iSuppli estimates overall PC shipments rose by a healthy 12-14% between Q3 2007 and Q3 2008.
