AMD taking microprocessor market share from Intel

Quote:
Strong demand for Fusion chips helped Advanced Micro Devices take global microprocessor market share from Intel in the second quarter this year, Mercury Research said in a study released on Thursday.

AMD's x86 microprocessor market share grew to 19.4 percent during the second quarter, up from 17.8 percent during last year's second quarter. Intel's market share fell to 79.9 percent from 81.3 percent in the year-ago quarter.

And they attribute this increase on the fact that hard economic times are forcing consumers into cheaper products...not necessarily that AMD is making a better or more powerful product.

Hi there
For building cheaper GOOD fast systems processors like the AMD phenom II X4 make excellent sense for cash strapped consumers.

A bit of competition is not bad for EVERYONE.

The fact that Apple has MORE money to spend at the moment than the U.S Govt doesn't mean MS is doomed (or the USA either |!!).

Honda sell more cars than FERRARI -- but so what --different products for different markets.

It may be that in future both INTEL and AMD can't survive in their present form -- but lets enjoy the competition at the moment and benefit from the lower costs.

Cheers

I see a Phenom X3 720 black edition being sold for $75.00 that can unlock to 3.2 mhz and higher if lucky. That's amazing performance for the money.

Intel has had some shady business practice in the past involving AMD.

AMD Wins Another Round Against Intel

Intel to pay AMD $1.25 billion in antitrust settlement | Business Tech - CNET News

In November 2009, Intel agreed to pay AMD $1.25bn and renew a five-year patent cross-licensing agreement as part of a deal to settle all outstanding legal disputes between them. In short Intel was lying about amd server processors to clients. Saying that they would not meet the demand of Intels clients who where looking to go to AMD.

Even though I use an Intel CPU in my main machine, I still have a decent Opteron 175 machine that I built just prior to Intel's release of the Core 2 Duo. Up until that time, AMD had been kicking Intel's butt in regards to CPU performance. Remember the Socket A - XP processors? I had several.

I'll always have great respect for AMD & want to see them do well. I would venture to question that - if it weren't for AMD's competition - would today's Intel's CPUs be as great if there had been NO competition present? I doubt it. They would still be spending more on marketing than R&D.

AMD Processors offer excellent value for the money spent. I got a MB and Athlon II X4 630 processor for $125 on sale in Nov 2009. The MB supported the Phenom II X4, so I changed over to that earlier this year. I know it's not the i7 class of Intel, but it's plenty fast for what I do, including ripping DVD's using DVDShrink, DVDFab, or HandBrake.

I agree that the Intel chips are faster but will you ever to be able to use that say 7% gian you get from an Intel chip in the real world? I do not not think that the cost is worth the little proformace gain.
