Even with the worldwide economy as bad as it is, Intel's market share has held steady and even increased, to where it is now at a 10-year peak. Intel's revenue has gone up 20 percent which equates to $48.7 billion. The next closer competitor, Samsung, only gained 0.6 percent to a total revenue of $28.6 billion.
Intel gained a massive boost from its purchase of Infineon, which allowed it to produce 3G chipsets for a possible Intel phone and for use in the many phones that are powered by its competitor, ARM. AMD gained only 1.4 percent to a total revenue of $6.4 billion, which equates to 12th on the list. Qualcomm came out the big winner, however, with a massive increase of 41.6 percent. This resulted in a total revenue of $10.2 billion.
