It looks like AMD's Fusion APUs are starting to work their magic. According to Mercury Research figures quoted by eWeek, AMD enjoyed some fairly substantial share growth in the x86 processor market last quarter. Intel, meanwhile, saw its market share retreat below the 80% mark.

Although eWeek doesn't say, I'm guessing these are unit share numbers. Revenue share data compiled by IHS iSuppli last month suggests AMD's slice of x86 CPU revenue was nowhere even close to 18% in the first quarter.
Naturally, Mercury Research attributes AMD's spurt of growth to the company's freshly released Fusion chips. It says the new silicon allowed AMD to grow its mobile shipments by a cool 10% in the second quarter. AMD's Q2 earnings release also talked of mobile growth, but the company's CPU business saw flat revenue growth overall due to declining sales of server offerings.
