Intel's loss is AMD's gain. AMD's share of the retail desktop market surged with its haul for the first seven weeks of 2006 coming in at over 80%. Intel's desktop share dropped to 21.5%. Intel has also seen losses in the notebook sector where its share has dropped to 63%.

All I can say is, WOW!

This probably means we can see some huge price drops in Intel processors!

We'd better have some price cuts. I'm not forking out more cash on a CPU just for the Intel logo when I next ugrade. If Intel screw up the Conroes then they've lost another customer in me.

This is not true. Below are the actual results overall. The posting above is clearly misleading as it is not applicable to retail marketshare and only retail sales. They say retail desktop market and not total retail sales.

That does seem quite extreme... I still think Intel has some work to do though or those numbers may actually become a reality.

Well if Intel is getting outsold 4-to-1 at the cash register, it's still a pretty major coup. And it won't take long for "retail sales" to turn into "market share" as those old Intel boxes are retired by people buying new AMD boxes.

But it's only an interesting statistic in the long run. The margins on PCs are razor thin, they are not exactly cash cow products. Both AMD and Intel are much more interested in the high-margin server market. AMD sure ain't outselling Intel 4-to-1 in the server world.

Indeed, but it's definitely not due to power, yet more due to large businesses signing contracts with Intel for reduced prices many years ago and being stuck with them. I'm actually contemplating going in with a friend and buing a couple servers and start a local webhosting company.......

Lol all the intel users are like "whehey, cheap processors"

and all the AMD users (Well ropey...lol ) are like "oh noes! Theyre going to go up in price!....I mean this is obviously not true. AMD has always performed better. Thats why I buy them. Not because they're cheaper."

I hope they don't go up in price though. Mine was expensive enough as it was and I got an OEM one :-|

Humm? Intel did very well with it's P4 line, now it's moving onto dual cores. You will be wining when intel takes over.

Well, the only reason my very first built was AMD based was because comparable Intel solutions were much more expensive (from a jobless teeneger point of view). I think the reason PC enthusiasts back AMD is because of:
1. Performance
2. Loyalty (Dam fanboys)
3. Less expensive than Intel counterparts
