RumorTT: AMD market share to grow in 2011? |

According to DigiTimes, Taiwanese notebook and motherboard manufacturers have their bets placed with AMD. Those anonymous (bah!) Taiwanese firms have predicting AMD's notebook market share will swell from it's current 11% in 2010 to 15% in 2011. With their server and desktop market shares increasing from 20% to 25%.

That last figure could end up slightly larger, maybe 30% by 2012 because of AMD's "strong performance/cost ratio as well as low power consumption". This of course will be great for sales as it'll drive netbook and notebook markets through the roof.

There's a standout bit in this article though - which notes that motherboard manufacturers are planning to increase the ratio of AMD to Intel motherboard shipped - which is a move "expected to help AMD win some global market share." This begs the question, are motherboard manufacturers backing AMD up for once or are they predicting greater demand with AMD's new product releases in 2011?
