07/28/06 Mercury market share numbers show AMD gains - the inquirer
"Overall, AMD made a little headway, but not the huge leaps of the past few quarters. I think Q3 will be a win for the firm, and Q4 is where Intel will start to claw back business. It is going to be a very interesting year, filled with a lot of changes and a volatile market"

06/12/06 AMD: Chipping Away At Intel's Lead - Business Week Online
"Suddenly, AMD's ambition to create a true duopoly in microprocessors is no longer a pipe dream. It now holds 26% of the lucrative U.S. server-chip business, and a stunning 48% of so-called multicore processors, which put at least two chips on a single sliver of silicon. Three years ago, the high-end server business was Intel's alone. Most significantly, AMD's gross margin passed Intel's for the first time last quarter -- 58.5%, vs. 55.1%"
05/24/06 AMD's Opteron scores another big quarter - TG Daily
"The overall server market saw a dramatic seasonal adjustment in the first quarter. Revenues plunged more than 18% from $14.48 billion down to $11.85 billion in Q1 2006. Even if compared to the first quarter of 2005, the market was very soft, considering a 1.9% revenue decline from slightly more than $11.9 billion. Worldwide server unit shipments growth also slowed modestly to 9.5 year-over-year."
03/03/06 Strike three for Intel - CNET
"AMD's surge can be seen most strongly in the U.S. retail market, which accounts for about 9 percent of global PC shipments. In the first seven weeks of 2006, AMD's share in desktops in that area climbed to 81.5 percent, while Intel's has slid to 18.5 percent, Baker said. That's almost a complete reversal of their typical relative positions."
02/22/06 AMD more than doubles Opteron shipments in slowing server market - TG Daily
"According to Humphreys, AMD's Opteron processors continue to gain acceptance due to its superior performance, heat and power consumption characteristics. While it is speculated that much of the growth could come from companies delaying purchase decisions because of Intel's new chip generations expected to be introduced in the third quarter of this year, Humphreys believes that many buyers are switching because of the Opteron's features: "There are projects which require systems today," he said"
