AMD gains market share at the expense of Intel

By Derek Sooman on
PC chip sales from the second quarter of this year have been dominated by low-priced processors, causing Intel to loose some of its market share.

Intel has lost eight-tenths of a percentage point, sliding to 82.7 percent in the second quarter. AMD have, in contrast, picked up half a point of market share, rising to 15.5 percent.

However, its interesting to note that the second quarter is always fairly weak for PC chip shipments. But a growing trend in emerging markets (who favour cheaper solutions and thusly cheaper chips) is gathering in strength.
