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.

Haha noob. Must be from the bible belt. You are the one who posted that an X2 can get 30-60 fps.... Where is the proof?

42.93 fps for the fastest Athlon X2. And that's only 1024x768 resolution.

Barely 31 fps for the $90 X2's you are whining about.

Why stupid? Because Athlon X2 6000+ posts 37 FPS in SupCom no matter what Intel fearmongers babble? Yeah, THG is stupid to debunk ya Intel lovers, sure :) I told ya SupCom will post somewhere between 30 and 60 FPS on a fast Athlon X2 so I was right, see?

Barely 31 fps for the $90 X2. OWNED!
Yeah, THG just owned you, fanboy. I said above that SupCom will post above 30 FPS on that $90 AMD chip, and THG just proved my words. Eat this, Intel lover. Go cry a river about THG posting wrong graphs or something :o)
