AMD Expected to Regain Market Share

IHS iSuppli said that Intel climbed to a processor market share of 82.6% in Q1 (up 2.0 points from Q1 2010), while AMD dropped to 10.1% from 11.8%.

However, Forbes predicts that AMD's notebook processors are good enough to take share from Intel - the publication's forecasts estimates that the uptick could be up to six points in the notebook market and up to eight points in servers. There may also be gains in the desktop market, but since we know that desktop shipments are declining anyway, those share gains may not matter much.

AMD has fueled high expectations among analysts that its new architecture will generate strong processor shipments. There is now clear pressure for AMD to deliver, even if Intel seems to have fully recovered from its Sandy Bridge hiccup earlier this year.

  • mobrocketIntel dominates the business market, i doubt the marketshare is that close in the personal computingfor heavens sake we need AMD to be relavate, without them intel will just kill all innovation and just cash checks


    Agreed! I'd love to see AMD gain some market share. They're unappreciated as is, and I love their chips. No CPU monopolies please!

  • mjelloIntels most feared competitor is ARM.They rule smartphone and tablet market. ARM has multiple suppliers. And they will soon enter the small and light notebook space as well. And eventually the fullsize notebooks will see them too.

    But in the mean time doesn't AMD have an exceptional net/notebook product in Llano?

  • AMD's APU line, makes the Intel's Atom processors look silly. Hopefully manufacturers will catch on and will see more Fusion based notebooks - possibly tablets too. I wouldn't mind seeing some home servers with an E-350 too.

  • Who's getting the other 7.3 %? No way niche sellers like IBM, Oracle, and VIA are accounting for 7.3% market share.
