Intel sinks

   

Last year was supposed to be the time where Intel dealt with AMD once and for all by stealing the march on it with its new dual core chips.
However according to figures from  iSuppli,  AMD had a record year while Intel suffered a revenue decline.


AMD nearly doubled its sales, according to iSuppli Corp.’s final 2006 market-share ranking while Intel lost 11.1 percent of its semi-conductor revenue.
Intel’s bleak performance erased nearly all of the company’s sales gains from its strong year in 2005.


AMD on the other hand saw a 91.6 percent increase in revenue for the year, partly due to a major acquisition, but also because of strong gains in microprocessor market share.
