According to Toms Hardware, AMD has drop 3 places to #11th, while Intel managed to solidify its expansion in the market place.
The acquisition of ATI helped AMD to enter the chip top 10 last year for the very first time. Ranked at #8, the company saw its revenues grow by 91.6% from $3.9 billion in 2005 to $7.5 billion in 2006. iSuppli, however, believes that the company's 2007 sales will take a significant hit, by 22.8% to $5.8 billion. Adding insult to injury, the market research firm sees this decline to be dramatic enough to kick AMD out of the top 10 list and list it at #11 in its preliminary ranking. Only one other top 10 player, Texas Instruments, will see its revenues decline for the year, iSuppli said.
