AMD is Creeping up on Intel

Intel was and still is the undisputed leader as far as market share in PC processors is concerned. AMD has however, managed slowly but steadily to gnaw at that lead. A recent report by Gartner Dataquest indicates that Intel's lead has been greatly reduced in Q3. That reduction has even resulted in AMD possessing 50% of the market in some countries, such as Japan.

So in Japan 54% of home PC's had AMD processors, a significant rise from the 24% AMD had during Q3, 2000. In Western Europe 49% of home PC's had AMD processors during Q3, 2001 while the equivalent figure for the same period in 2000 was 25%.
In the US AMD sales overall reached 27% in Q3, 2001 up from last years 17% for the same 2000 time period. Broken down the figures for AMD in the US were:
40% of commercially sold PC's had AMD processors while 33% of government and 18% of education PC's had an AMD processor running the show.
These results will certainly help raise spirits within AMD since they are eagerly anticipating the same figures for Q4, 2001. Those figures will really count for them since they will include the new XP line, remember they are trying to convince the market that MHZ don't count, and the effects of the recent P4 price cuts announced by Intel.

AMD is Creeping up on Intel

Dont start a flame war anyone :) both companies keep us happy because they reduce prices to compete with each other and faster CPU;s comeout remember 1000Mhz was annonced anyways i cant remember who releaced for AMD or Intel but in 3 days the other company followed or something like this! I was a fan of intel until i started to read reviews of AMD CPU i slwoly chnged my mind NOW the New xp CPU are wicked mine is on my christmas list 1800+ 1.533Ghz :) NV25 is next :) cant wait till that is released EPOX 8Kha+ seems a good AMD mobo with some cons but i have set up a rig that wont conflict i know all the week points of this mobo so i work around them :))) i dont need raid aaahhh long post sorry i kept u bored see u gamers

Real Mature Gingerbread Mani have an intel processor cos the amd could not handle being on for any more that about 18hours of the day where the intel can stay on all day or all week for that matter and still runs as fast as it was brand new!!!!!!!!!!(AMD ARE CHEAP AND NASTY)

shrub, i don't think you know what you're on about! i have had my AMD processor at LANs where it ran for more than a week without a rest. the whole time, the processor was subjected to a bombardment of high floating point tests (3d games to the max.) The processor never once reached a temperature of over 30 degrees celsius. it ran, as i mentioned earlier, for more than a week without the system being shut down, and it sustained no damage at all. at the LAN, we also had a p3 and a celeron. They both stalled within 12 hours of punishment. what does this tell you?get your facts straight bush, or shrub, whatever you call yourself.

Im sorry but i think its time to face the facts... i didnt want to admit that 3dfx was going out of business but it did.. and intel is falling behind (im not saying its gonna go out of business !!!!) so i odnt know why ppl are arguing, i dont know any ppl that post stuff on here and how long they ran thair computers, but the computer i am on is an athlon 800 and it has been running 2 weeks now as a lan server and for 3d games (quake3, ut, rune, cs etc) and no over heating... also people say that intel has better marketing so people that dont know about computers will buy a pentium 4.. but everyone knows the diffrence between prices and amd is a lot cheaper and faster .. well thats it for now... see you at the next amdvsintel update from Megagames

Who ever says that P4s are better ought to get smacked upside their heads. AMD shows best results for Gaming, and everything. I occasionally like to chip P4 chip across ponds because they are worthless piecess of crap. What backs me up on this is everyone that truely knows about PC hardware, not some idoit that knows how to use one. I wonder why AMD's 1800 had better benchmarks than the P4 2.0ghz. I wonder why my AMD 1.0ghz keeps running while the P4s stall out. I would get an AMD processor even if the processor cost more than a P4.AMD's is better!!!!!PENTIUM WOREs SWALLOW!!!!!!

AMD is Creeping up on Intel

runner, it's not as if people don't know that the Athlon XP 1800 isn't 1.8ghz. What we do know for sure is that the 1800 can out-perform the p4 1.8 ghz even though it does run at 1.533ghz. It has even out-performed the p4 2.0ghz in multimedia and games. Just check out the benchmark results. The proof is there. AMD is trying to point out that a processor's performance doesn't rely souly on the amount amount of ghz. It also relies on the core's architecture and amount of chache memory. AMD Athlon XP processors have 384kb of on-board cache memory, whereas p4's have a mere 266kb. This fact contributes greatly to the Athlon XP's superior performance. The processor's core is also a factor. The Athlon's core may be slower, but as benchmarks' results prove, they are more powerful. Also runner, AMD and Intel don't have the same FSB rate. P4's run at 400mhz, whereas XP's run at 266. this makes no difference though. XP's still out-perform p4's.p4's do run well with games, there's no denying that, but XP's run better. visit [url removed] and see the proof that XP's lead the way. always.

runner, you make it awfully obvious that you're a computer newbie. i have nothing against intel, i just know that AMD produce higher quality processors that are more powerful. also, nearly all motherboard manufacturers are starting to lean towards socket A. and runner, benchmarks don't lie. the AMD athlon XP 1900+ is now the most powerful processor on the commercial market. AMD are now in front. i think it will be very hard for intel to catch up now, unless they launch some incredulously powerful processor that blows the socks of the market. but that's pretty bloody unlikely.

AMD is Creeping up on Intel

AMD is better becuase theres more choies on price range and DDR kicks with a AMD xp 1800+ but intel has the edge on compatible AND THERE CHEAPER but intel real mouterboards and 1.5 off ram 133mhz and a 2ghz p4 and geforce 3 and westorn digitl hardive kicks ass but coast

AMD is Creeping up on Intel

AMD ownz j00 allIntel is pish overpriced and underpowered. I have noticed that many PC manufacturers that ship P4 PCs gove 'great prices' on intel machines. on closer inspection these 'superfast and cheap' machines use SDRAM at 133mhz instead of RIMMs. i think this is a bloody crime as it makes consumers think they are gettin a bargain when they buy a 2GHz P4 with 512MB RAM when an athlon XP 1800 (which only runs at about 1.4GHZ) with 512 MB DDR RAM goes a hell of a lot faster due to the intel only having SDR RAM to play with. I have heard reports that VIA are trying to manufacturer DDR P4 boards. Mr Intel doesnt like this and are talking lawsuits. This is a shame as only then would a P4 would be a viable alternative to an athlon. on a similar note f**k RAMBUS for trying to take over the RAM industry with its underhand tactics( a. charging a fortune for RIMMS b. trying to claim that they should own the patent for SDRAM) BUNCH OF ARSEHOLES!!!!!!!!!!

AMD is Creeping up on Intel

to all u intel supporting poofs who says amd chips are cheap and nasty.I have a Duron 750 runnin at 1.1GHzal u need to do is chuck an extra couple of fans into your case. my CS and Q3 run minty smooth for next 2 f**k all. beat that for overclockin you intel whores.

AMD is Creeping up on Intel

I just ask all AMD fans one Question.After Intel disappear, AMD rulez. After that, AMD will higher their price (example: Atlon XP 1800+ cost 400$). Did you buy that chips or not with that price?I'm sure you will because only AMD has available.Don't need told other person AMD rulez and Intel suck. You must see the futur.!!!!!!!! If Intel disappear AMD price will higher. !!!!!!!!

AMD is Creeping up on Intel

I don't like intel at all, they've been during years doing whathever they want with the users, i'm very happy that AMD is in the position he is, i think only people who don't know about microprocessors buy Intel now, it's a true that AMD is better than intel, althought the net value of the Intel company is much much bigger than AMD, so don't be worried about intel's death, intel is very alive still, and will be, and in the case of intel crash, another company (for example VIA ciryx) will take place, look at graohic market: 3Dfx died, is Nvidia alone now? have then the entire marked? NO, here is ati, with his Radeon 8500, better than any gforce. AMD RULEZZZ :)

AMD is Creeping up on Intel

So AMD vs INTEL ill give you some serius factsI have at home aAMD XP 1600MHz@2500MHzSome dude I dond know his name didINTEL P4 2200MHz@3000MHzas you see both companies can clock a litle bit so its only a question in time?The fastest home gpu on the market is not Geforce 3 ti 500 its Ati Radeone 8500So if you say your system is the best then get look a thes nubers and think. OOOO and a Geforce 4 TI 1000 (128MB 8X AGP) is on the way.

AMD is Creeping up on Intel

Yep extreem warer cooling.My cpu temp is around -15 to - 20 c* or 5 to -4 F* Under fullThe system is disignd for evreyday use and can not be brought in a store. The liguid I use is high dielectrik and froces if the temp goes under -72 C*. The system dosent make much of noise becose it has only one fan and its 80*80*25 and its in the power supply boxs dident have time do modify the power suply box.

AMD is Creeping up on Intel

Ok, this is nice... I hope both Intel and AMD stays in the market and hopefully more companies...AMD is great for its prices as its their only hope to stay alive...Intel on the other hand maybe left hand hehe is still the leader and no matter what happens it will remain the leader as long as their prices are higher than AMD or othersOverall, AMD fans (me) don't get to exited as we all know we like AMD because of their prices cuts againts Intel is working smoothly, but when its alone it won't care about ( us ) so Intel and AMD are 2 in 1 coin.
