After facing what seemed an insurmountable decline in desktop PC sales during the first six months of 2005, Advanced Micro Devices (
AMD) captured a 52% share of the US retail desktop PC market in September, according to Current Analysis. AMD’s performance during the back-to-school shopping season topped chip giant Intel’s 46% share by six points, said the market research firm. Despite its past successes in surpassing Inteldesktop sales in select retail sales weeks, September 2005 marked the first time AMD was able to outperform Intel for an entire month, the research firm stated.
Sweet. AMD beat Intel for sales. If I had money, I’d get a new AMD system too Athlon 64 4000+ (code name San Diego). Anyhow. Congrats to AMD, keep it up! w00t
