Sales figured calculated by Context reveal AMD is gaining marketshare in the CPU market in Western Europe. In Q4 2019, the company's marketshare stood at 14.7 percent, up from 7.7 percent a year ago. This resulted in sales of 932,743 processors, up 100.6 percent year-over-year.
Figures collated by Context for Western Europe, for the fourth quarter of 2019, reveal shipments of Intel processors for notebook, desktop and workstations fell 2.3 per cent year-on-year to 5.34 million units, with market share plunging to 84.1 per cent from 91.1 per cent. This was in a market that grew 5.8 per cent to 6.348 million.
Context notes that part of this is driven by Intel's processor supply issues, and another part by the growing adoption of AMD's Ryzen desktop and mobile processors. More at The Register.
