Intel needs to drop their prices. it's just too expensive in a time like this, especially the i7.

I hope they read this.

"Intel saw its market share dropped by 2.5 points ..... to 79.1% from 81.6%.  AMD grew its market share by 2.3 points to 12.8%."

AMD is as much of a threat to INTEL as Linux is to Microsoft.

Your point is?.... All that matters is that Intel dropped and AMD gained. Nuff said!

Just like Linux,  AMD has had since 1991 to "catch up"  and a short term 2.3 increase is meaningless at this point.

I didn't resort to name calling. Just goes to show how immature you are.

If you think about it in consumerist terms, people aren't buying Intel products as much as they used to. Instead during this recession, more people are likely to buy AMD budget chips which will raise AMD's share.

2.3 measly points isn't something to get excited about, but when and if you see AMD producing more chips that has a better "bang-for-the-buck" than Intel, then it'll be a threat. Until then AMD has still got quite a ways to "catch up", but for a company that only controls a 5th of the market, they are competing very well with Intel.

...that only controls a 5th of the market...

 Now here the statment is a bit inacurate. They have 1/5 market SHARE but CONTROL id say more like 40% of the actual market producing CPUS

Intel no doubti has like a 50-56% control while Nano, Ion, etc making up a control of like 4-10%

 I'm proud to say that I'm part of that 40% marketshare as 99% of PC's in my apartment run AMD CPU's and have ATI graphics!

I'd give it to amd with its phenom II

not everyone is a hardcore gamer with a big bankrole

in my area the 2 don't go hand in hand

so when some one come to me to build a Pc and says i wanna game

with a budget of 1200-1500$ (thats CND$ eh!)

i dont recomend Core i7 and i dont recomend C2D anymore

ive gone back to AMD

and also i agree with PCIV

If someone comes in looking for a laptop for school + a lil sims 3 i recomend AMD with ATI grafix

it just does a better job!

Well, for notebooks, I blame the Intel graphics card. I, being a geek (I'm here, aren't I?), tell people to get AMD for laptops just because it can't come with Intel's graphics. Apprantely, others are doing the same.

 I think it has more o do with Intell pissing on

Mother Board MAnufacturers

Nvidea

And God

 They threw their weight around and got slapped in their fat ass when they started to piss off their vendors enmasse
