Intel processor revenue share drops less than 1% as AMD's share grows by more than 2%

AMD and Intel by far the two largest processor firms around and Intel is many times larger than AMD. Intel holds a huge percentage of the global processor market, while AMD is a distant second in both revenue and marketshare.

Research firm iSuppli released its global statistics for the processor market. According to iSuppli, Intel holds a massive 79.7% of the world’s processor revenues leaving AMD with 10.9% of the global processor revenue.

When the revenue numbers are compared to Q1 2007, Intel’s revenue share in the processor market has dropped by 0.7%. At the same time AMD has been able to grow its share of the processor market revenue by 2.2%. According to iSuppli, AMD’s gain is a sign that consumers are responding better to AMD products.

ISuppli estimates that about half of AMD’s growth in revenue market share came at the expense of Intel and that the remainder came at the expense of the smaller processor makers. ISuppli also says that average selling prices from both Intel and AMD didn’t decrease in the first quarter of 2008 signaling that price wars between Intel and AMD have stopped.

Between Intel and AMD the two firms hold 92.7% of the total microprocessor market worldwide estimated to be worth about $286.5 billion in 2008. Despite the weakened U.S. economy, computer sales are still going strong.

ISuppli reported recently that PC shipments in Q1 2008 increased by 12.1% globally.

Really? Supreme Commander can run 30-60fps at 1900x1440 on an Athlon X2?? Show me those benchmarks.

Go smoke another one, buddy.

This article is another example of BS statistics 101. So for Q2 2007 thru Q4 2007 Intel lost 1.9%. But the Phenom blunder gave it all back in Q1 2008 as Intel erased the loss with a 1.2% increase. Sounds like bad news for AMD not good. If Q2 continues like Q1, Intel will have totally erased AMD's gain for the year while selling processors with better margins.......

Revenue is great, but it doesn't translate to profit.

Show me the benchmarks where you can't reach 30-60 FPS in SupCom at 1900x1440 on Atlon X2 2.8GHz that costs about $90 these days. Plus a proper GPU of course (cheap stuff like 9800GTX or AMD 4850 will do ;-)

Learn to post facts that support your point, my naive fearmongering friend :P

You seem to care more about pointless things and less about important things.

Remember, the point of playing the game is to play the game.

If you can turn on the eye candy, and play it on your screen at a reasonable resolution, with a playable frame rate - you should be happy. And then focus on playing the game.

The Athlon X2 may not allow you to turn up everything to the max, but it will low you to play the game, and get the satisfaction of winning.
