AMD revealed last week that it shipped a total of three million Fusion processors in the first quarter of this year, three times more than in Q4 2010. It represents about half of the mobile CPUs the company shipped last quarter, but AMD's marketshare in the mobile arena is pretty small.
Advanced Micro Devices managed to ship three million Fusion accelerated processing units (APUs) in Q1 2011, the firm said. The number represented about 50% of all processors for mobile systems shipped by the company, AMD said.
"We tripled [Fusion] unit shipments over the prior quarter. [Which represented] 50% [...] the share [of mobile chips] we had in the first quarter," said Thomas Seifert, chief financial officer and interim chief exec of AMD, in a conversation with financial analysts.
