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.

What's the point in that if Athlon X2 consumes even less power than Wolfdale?

You first wanted to see 45W Intel dual-core CPUs.. so I showed you proof of Intel dual-core CPUs drawing less than 45W. In later posts you added "TDP", which is entirely different from *actual* power consumption.

I can show you a truly remarkable CPU that draws 0W.. it's the CPU in my computer when the computer is unplugged. Irrelevant, you say? Of course, but that's not the point.

The point is that power consumption, as a measurement taken alone, is useless. What truly matters is how much performance you get out of each watt the CPU consumes. In that measurement, it's hard to beat the Wolfdale across *all* applications, not just games.

Like I already answered above, I expect this statement to be supported by numbers. Sorry, I don't trust words and statements without numbers to prove them.

Check out this link for some power consumption numbers.

"If you look at the last five years, if you look at what major innovations have occurred in computing technology, every single one of them came from AMD. Not a single innovation came from Intel." -- AMD CEO Hector Ruiz in 2007
