AMD enjoyed very slight market share growth compared to the third quarter of last year, but it lost ground sequentially, according to Mercury Research market share numbers quoted by PC World. The numbers apply to the x86 processor market specifically.

According to PC World, Mercury Research calculated that CPU shipments went up 5% year-over-year in the third quarter. The market research firm also said that the average selling price for PC CPUs was $107—reportedly the first time it's gone over $100 since early 2007.
It's nice to see AMD holding its ground against Intel despite those 32-nm manufacturing issues at GlobalFoundries. Presumably, the underdog's A-series (Llano) and E-series (Zacate/Ontario) APUs contributed to the year-over-year market share growth. In its last financial results release, AMD touted a 35% growth in mobile CPU revenue, which it said helped compensate for a decrease in desktop CPU sales.
