AMD Marketshare Stabilizing

AMD revenues up, Intel unit shipments too

July 19, 2007 - After six months of microprocessor market-share loses to rival Intel, AMD in the second quarter managed to stabilize its market share, according to iSuppli. AMD accounted for 11.4 percent of worldwide microprocessor sales, up half a percentage point from 10.9 percent in the first quarter. This rise brought to an end a period of decline for AMD that saw its market share dwindle by nearly six points from 16.8 percent in the third quarter of 2006 to 10.9 percent in the first quarter of 2007.

The main cause of the market-share reversal of fortune was a decline in Intel's microprocessor Average Selling Prices (ASPs), said Matthew Wilkins, principal analyst for compute platforms research at iSuppli. This caused Intel's revenue share to decline - although its microprocessor unit shipments were up sequentially.
