  1. Worldwide microprocessor revenues grew 23 percent in the third quarter of 2010 compared to the same time a year ago, and 3 percent compared to the second quarter of 2010, according to market research firm iSuppli. The rate of expansion should be considered very healthy growth, though the actual market share slices held by the world's two largest microprocessor manufacturers, Intel and AMD, have barely budged. Neither company was able to wrest significant market share away from the other in terms of revenue for the entire global processor market, including x86, RISC, and other types of general...

    Wow...AMD the 2nd largest and it only has 11 percent. I didn't think Intel was that dominant....

    Yeah, you're right there.

    2nd largest. Out of 2 main players that can also be called dead last. If they wanted to Intel could consume AMD right here and now.

    Besides VIA, who else would be under "others"?

    Amazing that Intel has that big of a chokehold on the market. However, if people have the money for it, oh well.

    However, I am very satisfied with my 965BE. Best $160 I ever spent on a CPU. That's one thing AMD has over Intel, Performance Value for your dollar.

    intel doesn't deserve such a market share...

    IBM (Cell, PowerPC, Power), ARM, Freescale, Sun/Oracle, Fujitsu, LSI, MIPS, SPARC and Tilera spring to mind.

    Sorry to burst your bubble. Factoring in energy usage any LGA 1156 cpu is better performance value for your dollar compared to an AMD counterpart. If I ran an AMD I would have spent more than the intel after around 6 months because I use my pc alot.

    I was as confused as princeton was. Then I realized that he, like me, was reading this post from the website formatting and not the forum format.

    I can't get to the forum format is the ****ing problem :p. Why did techspot have to remove the links on the page?

    EDIT:
    Oh wow we have to go through the forums. How dare techspot add another 5 seconds needed to access this!

    just built a desktop, got a phenom II 740 BE for about 80 bucks, and I am now using a unlocked quad core stable at 3.4.

    thats pretty good performance per dollar to me. the overclocking part isnt really fair because you can OC an intel too, but even if I left it a quad core at 3.0, it would still be a great deal at 80 bucks.
