AMD gains market share

The last time we broached the subject of market shares of AMD and Intel, we were based on a study that looked iSuppli Intel winner (what a surprise!) And rising. Boom! A new study by Mercury Research said today that AMD has instead taken market share from Intel with the success of Fusion APU. An important difference between the two studies is that of iSuppli covers the entire microprocessor market, while that of Mercury Research is limited to x86 compatible CPUs.

The market volume is not the same, the number of players either. According to Mercury Resarch, AMD took 1.6 points of market share between the second quarter of 2010 and the second quarter of 2011. Most of this increase took place between the first quarter 2011 and second quarter of 2011, AMD jumped 18.2% to 19.4%.

Intel, at the same time dropped from 81.3% in second quarter 2010 to 81% in first quarter 2011 and 79.9% in the second quarter of 2011. As shown by the quarterly results of AMD, this increase is solely due to APU Fusion Ontario / Zacate pleased that manufacturers of netbooks and notebooks first prize.

Sales of Phenom / Athlon or Opteron, they were stable or declining. GG accounted for 70% of the sales volume of notebook processors from AMD and 40% of the total sales of AMD.
