AMD's Opteron processor carved out an 11.2% share of the server market in the second quarter of 2005 according to Mercury Research. The 11% share is a nice boost from the previous quarter, where AMD captured 7.4% of the market. The availability of dual-core processors is credited for a rise in Opteron shipments, a trend that may continue as long as Intel's Xeon processors feature only a single-core.
Recently, Intel has taken to pushing its dual-core Pentium D desktop chip as a solution for single-socket workstations and servers. That could siphon off some potential Opteron customers; however, Intel doesn't have a dual-processor platform for the Pentium D.
