    Intel Corp. and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. (AMD) in the third quarter both managed to gain share in the global microprocessor market due to robust sales of PCs and servers and the cessation of the companies' brutal price war, according to iSuppli Corp.'s final ranking. In the third quarter, Intel accounted for 78.7 percent of global microprocessor revenue, up 0.3 of a percentage point from 78.4 percent in the second quarter. AMD fared even better, with its share rising by more than the twice the level of Intel's to reach 13.9 percent, up 0.6 of a percentage point from 13.3 percent in the second quarter. The two microprocessor suppliers gained at the expense of their smaller rivals, whose collective share of global revenue declined to 7.4 percent in the third quarter, down from 8.2 percent in the second quarter. Please note that this ranking accounts for sales of all types of general-purpose microprocessors, including RISC chips as well as the PC-oriented x86 devices sold by Intel and AMD.

    This story was pretty general IMO. I think it is kinda obvious that companies benefit from high demand.
