Research firms Mercury Research and IDC have both posted numbers for the processor market in the third quarter of this year, as eWeek and X-bit labs report. While the two research firms’ market share numbers differ slightly, their data suggests AMD largely held its ground against its bigger rival while enjoying increased processor sales compared to the same time last year.

Mercury Research says x86 microprocessor shipments increased more than 15% between Q3 2006 and Q3 2007. That growth was largely driven by notebook CPU sales, which increased a staggering 26% year-over-year, Mercury Research adds. In terms of market share, the research firm quotes 23% for AMD and 76.2% for Intel, numbers almost unchanged from its Q3 ’06 figures of 23.3% and 76%.

IDC, meanwhile, cites growth of 14.3% for the microprocessor market as a whole. Unlike Mercury Research, IDC says AMD’s market share actually went up—from 23.1% in Q3 ’06 to 23.5% to Q3 ’07, to be exact. That 0.4% gain was made at the expense of Intel, whose market share dropped from 76.7% to 76.3%. According to IDC, AMD’s slice of the mobile processor market increased 1.9% year-over-year to 18.9%, and its share of the server market grew 0.7% to 13.9%.
