AMD's Fourth-Quarter Rise

Sales have been strong for AMD CPUs in both the desktop and server market, and have made steady gains in the market. Their market share has risen close to four points in the fourth-quarter of 2005, bringing their total market share to 21.4 percent.

"Basically, I think the fundamental difference between AMD today and AMD two years ago [when the company had a lower market share] is that it has competitive product offerings in every segment," said Dean McCarron, principal analyst at Mercury Research in Cave Creek, Ariz. "Because [AMD] has something to sell, they're selling it."
