US market research company Mercury is reporting that AMD now has a 17 per cent share of the x.86 market, a jump of nearly five per cent in a quarter. That will give Intel room for thought as it digests how well it performed in its Q4 results, reported yesterday evening. A report in today's Wall Street Journal says that Intel's share for the x.86 microprocessor market slipped during the quarter, while AMD's showed gains. The last quarter Mercury Research reported showed that AMD had 12.5 per cent market share. AMD, will next week come under scrutiny, when it releases its quarterly financial results. Last week, major PC vendor Gateway said it would use AMD Athlon processors in a range of its machines.
