[techreport] AMD market share sees short-term drop, long-term rise

post #1 of 14

The microprocessor market has been especially turbulent lately, with AMD forced to price its Phenom processors out of the high end in a bid to remain competitive. How has the situation affected AMD's and Intel's market shares? iSuppli has posted numbers that say AMD managed to increase its market share between the first quarter of 2007 and the first quarter of 2008, but on the flip side, it lost ground between Q4'07 and Q1'08.

iSuppli says AMD had 13% of the global microprocessor market (which includes non-x86 CPUs) in the first quarter of this year, while Intel was sitting pretty with 79.70% of the market. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2007, AMD's piece of the pie has shrunk: the company had a 14.1% share to Intel's 78.5% then. However, AMD only had 10.9% of the CPU market to Intel's 80.4% in the first quarter of 2007, so it has actually gained 2.1 market share points between Q1'07 and Q1'08.

According to iSuppli, AMD took roughly half of those growth points from Intel, while the other half came from other, smaller players in the CPU market. Those smaller players have seen their aggregate market share drop from 8.7% in the first quarter of 2007 to 7.3% in the first quarter of this year.

Just out of curiosity, how much of the market did AMD have at its height?

Whatever AMD can get is good. With the release of the 4800 series which seems to be highly successful, and no one has questioned why (they simply perform great at an astonishing price) and the new Phenoms being released that clock better and run cooler, the future is looking a bit brighter for the men in green.

Things are definitely looking better, but I still feel they're pretty far behind. Nehalem is just around the corner... with Larrabee around the next corner. I know it's not definite that Larrabee will be anything special, but I never bet against Intel. If Larrabee takes off, I pity the next generation of computer enthusiasts.

2.1% in such a short time, very impressive gains. Hope to see them capture further sales.

Where AMD needs to compete (and it seems are competing) is in the high profit margins mobile market. This is where the PC market in general is heading.

If I recall correctly, it was a little bit over 20%, so I'm thinking ~22%. Even when their CPUs were better, they didn't have the manufacturing capacity to penetrate the market much more than that.

I'm really glad that people realize this fact. Laptop/notebook sales are rising faster than anything else and AMD has two big projects geared at this specifically, Puma (and derivative platforms) as well as Fusion.

I completely agree. I can't wait until the 45nm's come out.

Tell me about it, these new 9850BE's and 9950BE's are overclocking REALLY well and with a die shrink should start to really kick some ass.

Maybe I can go back to AMD before Shanghai.
