AMD wants 30 percent market share
As processor and chipset manufacturer AMD explained at the launch of the new Athlon MP in Kuala Lumpur, the plan is to achieve a global market share of at least 30 percent by the end of this year.
It is clear that this plan is a clear declaration of war against competitor Intel, which still has the majority share in the processor market. So far, this lead has been maintained primarily through mobile and server processors, as the Advanced Micro Devices mainly supplied the mainstream market with the Athlon. But with the presentation of the new Athlon MP, which was specially designed for server use, as well as the Mobile Athlon 4, the counterpart in the mobile sector, manager Wee Yep Yin is extremely confident of the current market share of almost 21 percent in the first three months of this year Year to be able to expand to the self-set goal at the end of the year. 'We are on track to achieve our target of a market share of 30 percent by the end of the year.' said Wee Yep Yin and reaffirmed in the interview: 'We see unequivocal signs that we can do it'.
