AMD Outsells Intel in Retail Desktops

Posted on Monday, Sep 13 2004 @ 19:10 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Even though AMD still does not do any business with a number of PC makers, sales of retail AMD-based machines in the USA have been upticking since early this year, following extensive advertising campaign as well as widespread media coverage of AMD’s 64-bit initiative.

A recent market study released by Current Analysis indicates that AMD’s current share in desktops sold in the US retail stores is slightly above 50%, up about 30% from January, 2004. Intel’s share is down about 30% to slightly below 50%. The numbers only reflect desktop computers sold to customers via retail outlets: the figures do not indicate desktop sales to corporate customers, notebook computers as well as servers or workstations.
