The analytical company Mercury Research has published the results of a study by the Central Processor Market in the Third Quarter. According to the report, AMD managed to take some share from Intel, even despite significant production problems.
The total CPU shipment level in the third quarter of this year increased by 5% compared to a similar last year. At the same time, the market share was distributed between the main participants as follows: Intel holds 80.3%, having lost 0.3%per year, and AMD – 18.8%, adding 0.5%per year. At the same time, in comparison with the second quarter, the proportion of AMD decreased by 0.6%.
Changes in the structure can hardly be called critical, but it is worth noting that the companies from Sanniel managed to take part of the processor from the processor giant «pirogue» Against the background of significant difficulties associated with a high marriage level of 32-nm plate production of Globalfoundries, which negatively affected the number of shipped chips of Llano.
As for the forecast for the current 4 quarter, analysts from Mercury Research believe that Intel will give in a few more points, since AMD recently «I took out a ace from the sleeve», which became the FX family of chips on the architecture of Bulldozer.
The market analysis is built taking into account all the CPU families built on the X86 architecture, taking into account the chips for laptops, desktop PCs and servers.
