“AMD HAS CARVED a chunk out of Intel’s market share over the last few months, according to figures just released by iSuppli.
The numbers show that AMD managed strong chip sales and its share increased by 2.3 percentage points to 12.8 per cent in the first quarter.
Intel’s market share slipped 2.5 points to 79.1 per cent in the same period, and iSuppli claims that the decline ended a year of sequential growth for Chipzilla that started in 2008.”
