    Silicon giant Intel certainly has the upper hand in the current chip market, with its market share rising to over 80% for the first time since Q3 2005. Back in Q4 2006, AMD was enjoying a market share of 15.7% according to market watcher iSuppli, with Intel on 75.7%. However, the latest figures show that these statistics have now changed to 11.1% and 80.2% respectively, quite a noticeable drop for AMD. Intel has been gradually clawing back the market share it lost to AMD ever since the release of the Core 2 Duo processors, with AMD’s market share peaking at 16.7% in Q3 2006. AMD will be hoping for improved sales later this year when it releases its new desktop and server CPUs.

    Intel will, for a good time to come, have a lead in pc chip sales. For the longest time, its been just them. SUre IBM had a processor, Via, Cyrix, etc...but Intel has been a mainstay for years. AMD, though I wouldnt call it recent, only in the last 15 years at most, started competing with Intel. They've gained quite the ground on them. They didnt lose too much with the C2D release, but its enough to worry them. Im sure some of it will come back with the K10 architecture. However, and I hope most agree, I dont see AMD ever taking over in the forseeable future. Maybe, if they do right and really make good procs, 30 years, but not anytime soon.
