AMD barely has 0.1 percent marketshare in workstation market

Posted on Monday, November 29 2010 @ 15:37:08 CET by

Jon Peddie Research reports Intel owned 99.9 percent of the processor market for workstations in Q3 2010. This is one of the markets in which AMD seems to have no interest at all, the company's Opteron CPU marketshare slid from a peak of 3.6 percent in Q2 2006 down to 0.1 percent in Q3 2010:
"AMD hasn’t really been engaged in the workstation market for some time, sitting back to watch Opteron’s penetration in workstations drop from a peak of 3.6% of the worldwide market in Q2 2006 (and a more impressive 9.9% of dual-socket workstations) down to 0.1% in Q3 2010. And with the last major holdout HP quietly discontinuing its two Opteron models recently, AMD’s share of the CPUs shipping in workstation will for all intents and purposes drop to zero," said Mr. Herrera.

The analyst sees two reasons why CPUs from AMD have disappeared from workstations:

* The company needs to pick its battles carefully, and it does not see workstations as a priority.
* Today’s business unit structure at AMD does not appear to lend itself to serving the workstation market effectively. Unlike Intel, AMD lacks the wherewithal to compete full bore in every segment, so it needs to choose its battles judiciously.
