AMD takes share from Intel in PC processor market

Intel logoIntel still dominates the PC microprocessor market, but its share has slipped slightly, according to results just published by IDC. For the second quarter of this year, which represents about $9.5 billion in sales, Intel garnished a 79.3 percent share of the overall market, down 1.5 percent, while AMD grabbed exactly as much as Intel lost to reach 20.4 percent. Processors with integrated graphics represented over 60 percent of all CPUs shipped and was given a kick by AMD's Fusion graphics.

In the mobile segment, Intel lost 1.9 percent, dropping to an 84.4 percent share. AMD ended with 15.9 percent, a gain of nearly as much at 1.8 percent. Via, a third player in this market, managed to hold on to an 0.4 percent share. For server and workstation processors, Intel actually gained 0.6 percent of the market through the Xeon's dominance, ending with 94.5 percent, while AMD's Opterons lost some yardage, dropping to 5.5 percent of the market.

Total shipments were about the same as the comparable quarter in 2010. They were also about the same as the first quarter of 2011, after adjusting for an extra week in that quarter.

Looking forward, IDC believes that during 2011, shipments will grow 9.3 percent year-to-year over 2010. This is actually lower than the researcher's previous prediction of 10.9 percent growth. IDC attributes this reduction to "economic headwinds" that have hindered the growth in developed countries.
