CPU shipments up 6.7% in Q3, Intel increases its lead

CPU shipments up 6.7% in Q3, Intel increases its leadAs reported by IDC, the global PC processor market has done quite well in Q3, with unit shipments going up 6.7% sequentially and 5.2% on-year, while revenues (aided by a rise in average selling price) topped $10.7 billion, up 12.2% compared to Q2 and up 16.1% over Q3 of 2010.

The growth in Q3 was really kind to Intel who managed to increase its CPU market share to 80.2% (up from Q2's 79.3%). Now, the number one microprocessor maker actually lost some ground in the mobile segment, dropping to 82.3%, but it gained in the server and desktop markets, reaching 95.1% and 75.8%, respectively.

Intel arch-rival AMD has seen its market share slip to 19.7% (20.4% in Q2) due to drops in the desktop and server segments, but at least it can brag with a nice gain in the mobile space. Overall, AMD's desktop, server and mobile CPU unit shares (in Q3) were of 24.1%, 4.9% and 19.7%, respectively.

VIA Technologies was only able to grab 0.1% of the market.
