Relax, this isn't about Advanced Micro Devices Inc. beating the Core 2 Duo. After gaining slightly more than 2% in both desktops and notebooks, AMD has broken its own record by capturing 25.3% of the $29.5 billion x86 market in the last quarter of 2006, according to a report released by Arizona PC market watcher Mercury Research. "Intel has had lower [quarterly] shares than this, but this is the lowest since late 1995," said Dean McCarron, principal of Mercury Research. McCarron noted that Intel expanded its server share by slightly more than 1% in the same period. AMD's gains came from first-time design wins in servers, notebooks and desktops from Dell, servers from Gateway as well as more design wins from IBM, Hewlett-Packard and Sun.
