Good news for healthy competition - AMD's market share is up.

Sales of Intel-based desktop PCs fell 22.3 percent during the fourth quarter, according to Current Analysis. As a result, sales of AMD-based desktops took the lead during the pivotal fourth-quarter holiday shopping season. AMD chips were found in 52.5 percent of desktop PCs sold in U.S. retail stores during that period.

Intel partially blamed poor demand for desktops for its fourth-quarter earnings results that were below expectations. But desktop shipments grew 13.4 percent among U.S. retail customers during the quarter, Bhavnani said. Last month, IDC predicted the entire U.S. PC market would grow only 8.3 percent during 2006.
