Is Intel About to Crush AMD’s Resurgence?
The latest market share numbers from the x86 processor space don’t paint a bright picture for Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) as it seems to have lost more ground to rival Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ: AMD). According to market research firm Mercury Research, AMD’s share of the x86 processor market — which includes processors used in servers, laptops, and desktops — increased to 24.6% in the third quarter. This reading is the second-highest share AMD has ever seen in x86 processors, after the 25.3% share it achieved in the fourth quarter of 2006.
