A couple of weeks ago, AMD attempted to mitigate its none-too-pleasing second quarter financial results announcement by proclaiming that it had regained market share from Intel. As eWeek reports, market intelligence firm Mercury Research has now published market share numbers from the second quarter, and it looks like AMD did indeed recover some of the market it lost to Intel in the first quarter.
Mercury Research says AMD had a market share of 22.9% in the second quarter, up from 18.7% in the first quarter of this year. Intel, meanwhile, saw its market share slip from 80.5% to 76.3%. As a whole, Mercury Research says the PC microprocessor market had a strong quarter, with mobile, desktop, and server segments all seeing "double digit growth."
