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.
