Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Intel has taken the lead from AMD is the chief supplier of processors for the sub-$1000 PC market for the first time in almost 12 months, according to PC Data's latest figures for the US retail and mail order channels. The stats, for June, saw Intel take 45.4 per cent of the cut-price PC market, nudging ahead of AMD, which grabbed 43.2 per cent. AMD has commanded the sub-$1000 market since last July, largely thanks to its K6-2 CPU. In January, AMD took the lead from Intel throughout the retail channel, taking 43.9 per cent of all desktop PCs sold in that market. At that time it held 50 per cent of the sub-$1000 arena, compared to Intel's 25.4 per cent share. Throughout the period, however, Intel's Celeron has been winning OEMs back to Chipzilla. It's not the best-selling chip in the sub-$1000 space -- that's still the K6-2, powering 43 per cent of the desktops PCs shipped. And AMD still owns the retail PC market as a whole, but it's lead is down to eight per cent. ®
