Intel extends lead over AMD

Written by Fudzilla staff



83.7 percent share


Intel is ending the year with an increasing lead over chief rival AMD. According to IHS, Intel’s share worldwide revenues in Q3 rose to 83.7 percent, a 1.2 percent jump over Q2. Meanwhile AMD’s market share dipped 0.3 percent to 10.2 percent.

Of course, we are talking about revenues, not unit sales. Due to higher average selling prices, Intel’s revenue share is greater than the overall market share. Analyst Matthew Wilkins noted that the tablet boom had both upsides and downsides for Intel. Although the vast majority of tablets aren’t based on Intel chips, Intel still benefited from the trend by boosting sales of server chips used in data centers for cloud computing.

However, Atom sales suffered a great deal from the shift from netbooks to tablets. According to Intel, Atom sales dropped 32 percent year-over-year in Q3.
