AMD takes world CPU share from Intel

x86 platform ousting others

3 Big data security analytics techniques

AMD regained a few percentage points of world microprocessor market share from its arch-rival, Intel, the latest, second-quarter figures from market watcher iSuppli show.

During Q2, Intel accounted for 78.8 per cent of global CPU sales by revenue, down from 80.8 per cent in Q1. AMD's share was up from Q1's 10.9 per cent to 13.4 per cent. That's half a percentage point more than Intel's dip - the remainder was taken from all the other vendors, such as VIA and ARM's licensees. Together, VIA and co. took 7.8 per cent of the market.

Still, AMD's Q2 2007 share was lower than the 16.4 per cent the chip maker took in Q2 2006. Everyone else but Intel took 10.2 per cent in the year-ago quarter, showing a similar year-on-year decline - a clear sign the world is shifting away from non-x86 processors to that platform.

The also numbers confirm iSuppli's July forecast that AMD would turn round the market share slide that it has been experiencing for the six months through to the end of March 2007.

Focusing on the x86 processor business, Intel took 80.3 per cent in Q2 to AMD's 11.4 per cent, iSuppli said recently.
