AMD gains some shares from Intel in 4Q09

Логотип AMDAMD in the fourth quarter of 2009 managed to increase its portion of the global microprocessor market, as it gained share both from chief rival Intel and from smaller players, according to iSuppli.

In the fourth quarter, AMD accounted for 12.1% of worldwide MPU (CPU) revenues, gaining 1.6 percentage points of share from the same period in 2008. AMD picked up 0.28 of a point of share over its position in the third quarter of 2009.

Intel in the fourth quarter held an 80.6% share of global microprocessor revenues, losing one percentage point of share from the fourth quarter of 2008. On a sequential basis, Intel gained 0.1 of a point from the 80.5% it held in the third quarter of 2009.

The smaller microprocessor suppliers collectively accounted for 7.3% of shipments in the fourth quarter, down 0.6 percentage points from 7.9% during the same period in 2008.

"For the full year of 2009, the market share situation was somewhat more balanced with AMD and Intel picking up two-tenths and three-tenths of a percent of share, respectively, in 2009 compared to 2008," said Matthew Wilkins, principal analyst for computer platforms at iSuppli. "This is an interesting development because PC average selling prices (ASPs) dropped significantly during the course of 2009 - especially for notebooks. So, the fact that AMD and Intel virtually maintained their market share at the annual level shows that neither supplier was overly punished by the dropping ASPs. It also indicates that neither was able to capitalize on the situation very effectively."
