In the third quarter, Intel reclaimed some share for chips that power desktop PCs and servers, while smaller rival AMD gained share for chips used in laptops, according to analysts at Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan, citing data from Mercury Research. Intel and AMD both increased their market share for so-called x86 microprocessors used in PCs and servers as VIA ended production of some of its processors. Intel’s overall processor unit market share grew to 76% for three months ended Sept. 30, up from 73% in the prior quarter. AMD’s overall share grew to 23%, from 22%. Intel gained roughly 6 points in the desktop segment and two points in the server segment, where AMD has hurt Intel the most over the past two years.
