Intel see gains in the retails sector

For the month of June, Intel saw its fortunes rise in the retail market. Part of AMD's slide comes from the increased use of Intel Celeron processors in budget notebooks that have been flooding the market. AMD has seen its market share drop in not only notebooks, but also the desktop sector (even though it still holds a commanding lead there).

When DailyTech last reported on retail PC sales in March, AMD's desktop share held firm at 81.5% while Intel hovered at 18.5%. Intel's retail notebook share came in at 63%. Today, however, AMD commands 73% of retail desktop sales while Intel captured 26.8% of the market. Intel's retail notebook share has risen slightly over the past few months to 66.2% while AMD dropped to 33.4%. When all the numbers were finally crunched, Intel's overall market share for June stood at 51.2% while AMD slid to 48.5%. From CNET News:

AMD accounted for 73 percent of all retail desktops in the United States, while Intel accounted for only 26.8 percent. But it's a mixed blessing, Bhavnani noted. AMD in May was dominant in the machines that cost $750. The chipmaker accounted for 84.5 percent of desktops costing up to $500 and 88.9 percent of desktops priced between $500 and $750. By contrast, Intel accounted for 52.1 percent of desktops costing $750 to $999 and a whopping 91.7 percent of those starting at $1,250 that month.

It should be interesting to see how the numbers juggle even further with new Core 2 Duo products coming out from Intel in the coming weeks. We already know that AMD is prepared for price cuts across the board to match Intel’s aggressive pricing.
