Bad news for AMD as Intel gains server share
AMD just can't seem to catch a break. After two profitable quarters (amid a multiyear string of losers), a product transition causes it to miss out on the big first-quarter server market rebound that propelled Intel to record profits.
According to a new market share report from IDC, Intel managed to take critical server market share from AMD, with the former company seeing a year-over-year jump from 89.9 percent last year to 93.5 percent this quarter. Meanwhile, AMD's market share dropped from 10.1 percent to 6.5 percent.
AMD's slow transition to the Opteron 6000 series, and the subsequent market share losses, are practically the mirror image of Intel's success in getting its 32nm Westmere and 45nm Nehalem EX server parts into the waiting hands of server makers who finally were ready to open their wallets and start purchasing again.
