Intel loses market share to AMD

Category: CPU's
Posted: 02:11AM

After the release of Intel's Core 2 Duo microprocessors, AMD lost a massive amount of market share. Now with the economic crisis, and every penny counting, AMD have seen a nice boost in market share especially since AMD dominates Intel in low price, high performance. With the introduction of AMD's Phenom II, AMD have given Intel's Core 2 Quads a run for their money, especially since AMD's new microprocessors are cheaper, and in almost all cases out-paces most of the Core 2 Quads. Later this month AMD will release new quad-core Phenom IIs which should pose some sort of threat to Intel's Core i7. Time will tell, and it's time that AMD regain some ground in the market.
