AMD gains marketshare in server market

Posted on Thursday, Nov 24 2005 @ 14:00 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Gartner reports AMD continued to increase its marketshare in the server market in Q3 2005. The company managed to increase its share from eight percent to ten percent, a pretty substantial gain in a single quarter.
For the US x86 market, it took a 16.4% bite out of it, up from an 11.9% bite the quarter before.

In the 4P space, the ramp was even more substantial, going from a 28% to a 38.2% bite, a huge gain. Ten per cent of a segment in three months is pretty astounding. If you are wondering, AMD is happy to point out that Dell's bite went from 15.3% to 12.9% in the same time. I would guess that HP is the big winner here, it is aggressively pitching AMD boxes against Dell in this space.
