Since time immemorial - at least that's what it feels like - Intel has dominated the PC chip market and the latest figures from market watcher Mercury Research offer no sign of a change to the status quo.

AMD fanboys will be tickled to know that the chip giant saw its market share slide from 83.5 per cent in Q1 to just 82.7 per cent, down a whopping, a humungous... er... four-fifths (0.8) of a percentage point.

Some of that loss was picked by AMD, which saw its market share rise by an almost equally monumental half a percentage point (0.5) to 15.5 per cent. The remaining third (0.3) of a percentage point that the chip giant haemorrhaged during Q2 went to Transmeta and VIA for them the squabble over the spoils. Together those two account for 1.8 per cent of the x86 market.

Compared to Q2 2003, AMD's share was down - by a tenth of percentage point (0.1) - while Intel's was up by the same amount.

The good news for AMD enthusiasts is that, at this rate of sequential gain and Intel's quarterly 0.8 percentage point decline, AMD will overtake Intel in exactly 13 years' time - sometime in Q2 2017. Assuming, of course, that Transmeta doesn't suddenly spring forward and steal the market from both of them...
Whole Story...
