AMD thrashes Intel, again

Bashes chip giant in US retail market

Market research company PC Data said yesterday that AMD had taken over 50 per cent share of the US desktop retail market in February. That is two months in a row that AMD has trashed Intel's retail share. The figures show AMD at 51.4 per cent, Intel at 38 per cent and Cyrix at 10.4 per cent. Perhaps it's time that AMD started really stepping up production by using other fabs. ® Can AMD ramp up production enough to really compete with Intel? Post your thoughts on our forum.
