Intel microprocessor market share hits highest in four years According to data released by iSuppli, Intel Corp. has built on its lead in the global microprocessor market. Intel received 81 percent of all revenue made from microprocessors in the second quarter of 2009; a 2 percent rise compared to the figures from last year.
It represented the highest level it has had in almost four years, after achieving an 82 percent share in the third quarter of 2005.

Both Intel and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) reported lower revenues than a year earlier because of a decline in PC shipments. Intel benefited as the global PC market began to recover, according to iSuppli analyst Matthew Wilkins.

Because AMD's average pricing for a microprocessor was lower than that of 2008, it did not gain from the small sequential rise in sales of new PCs.

While Intel saw strong demand for products in all segments, only the netbook segment provided Intel with any growth over the previous year, at about 13 percent. Last month, the chip-maker upped its third-quarter sales forecast due to stronger than expected demand for its processors.

Zippy I lost you at ADM...

I've had better experiences with AMD opposed to Intel. The computer I built last year contains the Phenom 9850 Quad Core been very happy with it. Runs everything I've thrown at it, even Pinnacle Studio 12 when I was converting .m2ts

Just saying in the last 5 or so years(ever since intel came out with the C2D) ADM has not been at the top of their game.
