AMD's Future Processor Market Share Expectancies

This isn't all too surprising I have to say. XBit Labs report that AMD have an expectancy to gain at least a 33% processor market share within the next 2 to 3 years, almost doubling that of its current stature in the market place.


Given the significant and well placed advancements in technology with regard to their Athlon64 and X2 dual-core processors, i'm sure these expectations are quite plausible, and would even go so far as to say that their claims to hold a 50% share in the market by 2015 are well under-estimated if their current rate of success is anything to go by.


Further info over at XBit folks.


Advanced Micro Devices seeks to almost double its market share throughout the next two or three years, its CEO has said in an interview with journalists. Other AMD executives have made even bolder claims and expected the chipmaker's share to be 50% by 2015.


"There's no reason why we shouldn't aspire be a third of the market in the next two or three years," Hector Ruiz, chairman, president, and CEO of AMD, told InformationWeek recently.


In Q1 2005 AMD commanded 16.9% of the x86 central processing units market, up about 1.9% from the first quarter of 2004 and an increase of 0.3% sequentially, according to market research figures by Mercury Research. Intel's market share was 81.7% in the first quarter, or down 0.5% compared to the Q4 2004 and 1.8% annually. The remaining 1.4% of the market was shared by chip designers like VIA Technologies and Transmeta Corp.
