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.

I can't help it! I just HAVE to argue when I know that somebody's WRONG. (You, not me)

Shame I can't find any reviews of the Intel Pentium E2200, which costs just $80 at newegg and can easily be overclocked to 3 Ghz... can anybody help me to find a review?

Strangely all of the reviews of the Intel Core 2 Duo 4xxx series have disappeared as well. Still, lets find a 6300 review.

Ouch. Is the AMD FX 62 about the same as the AMD X2 6000 in terms of performance?

The ball is in your court.

You showed me how 6300 got owned by cheapo X2 4600, and I don't care about OC because most people don't OC. Satisfied?

LOL somebody forgot to look at the red bars which show the 6300 being overclocked, beating every AMD processor out there.
