AMD Steals Market Share From Intel

IDC reports that for the entire year, PC microprocessor sales jumped by 13.2 percent to more than $41 billion. Much of the increase was due to higher average selling prices, which added about 9 percent.

Both Intel and AMD were able to gain market share in individual market segments, but it was AMD that came out on top overall. Intel ended the year with 80.1 percent share, down 0.6 points from 2010, while AMD gained 0.7 points to 19.7 percent and Via dropped 0.1 points to 0.2 percent share.

According to IDC, Intel suffered a 2.6 point loss in the mobile segment (down to 83.8 percent), as AMD added 2.7 points bringing it to 16.0 percent. AMD lost in the server and workstation segment where it is now at 5.5 percent, which was down 1.5 points. Intel is overwhelmingly dominant with 94.5 percent (up 1.5 points). In desktop processors, Intel came in at 73.8 percent (+1.7 points), while AMD was down 1.6 points to 26.0 percent.

    Another dumbass headline. AMD gains market share in mobile, but loses in workstation and desktop. Which means an overall net loss.

    One of these days VIA is going to come out of left field with something amazing, but I'm not holding my breath.
    Good to hear that AMD is still in the game

    I hope that Piledrive will turn things around for AMD.

    You, and the gamer community, are a minority in the total computer marketshare. For every gamer, there are possibly dozens or hundreds of non-gamers or casual ones, and why should they use desktop computers if laptops or tablets can easily fill in the computing job.

    Buzz, the article states that, overall, AMD was the winner, despite losing in some segments. It appears that it was not a net loss.

    For laptops and budget builds, I think AMD is the way to go with their APU's

    I don't think you even read 25% of my post, because I was being sarcastic with the first statement. My point was that neither PCs nor consoles will be gone anytime soon and that the third and final alternative MOBILE GAMING is not anywhere near the same experience.
