    Despite strict competition from Intel, AMD managed to gain market share in Q3. In Q3 2007, Intel sold 76.2% of all processors, AMD sold 23.3%, and everything else went to other manufacturers such as VIA. AMD processors got said market share from companies such as VIA and Transmeta, according to Mercury Research. Intel market share has remained somewhat flat over the past couple quarters. According to analysts, "Clearly, there are a lot of different dynamics to what is going on in the market. There is really strong consumer demand and there are some indications that we might be at the beginning of a corporate refresh cycle". Hence, AMD may be releasing the Phenom/Barcelona processors at an opportune time. Mercury research also discovered that laptop/server usage went up by 15%, and the mobile market segment experienced a 26% sequential growth this past quarter.

    Its gaining its share back, and its close to where it was when it was making a profit. I wouldnt really worry about AMD or read too much into their losses. They absorbed a company, of course they will take hits. It would be the same thing if Intel absorbed Nvidia. However, its starting to swing up for them and the losses are getting lower and lower and growth is stronger and stronger. Also, with their new chips being released and at a terrific price point, it should really help AMD out in the short and long term situation.
