Default AMD's CPU share grew last quarter

Mercury Research: AMD's CPU share grew last quarter - The Tech Report

Quote:
Mercury Research numbers quoted by PC World say AMD's slice of x86 processor shipments grew to 19.1% last quarter, up from 18.2% in the first quarter of 2012. Intel's share declined from 81% to 80.2% over the same time period.

More encouraging for the underdog, the data shows AMD's share of desktop x86 CPU shipments held steady at a cool 43%. PC World doesn't quote Mercury Research's mobile data, but it says customers "also opted for lower-priced laptops, many of which had AMD's chips."
Chalk that up mainly to AMD's APUs and Llano, I suppose. Either way, I'm glad to see that AMD isn't lying down and taking a beating without throwing a few punches of their own.
