Opteron grabs 22.1% of x86 server market

Citing statistics by Mercury Research, AMD reported that its Opteron processor has taken 22.1% of the global x86 server market in 1Q06. This is a 35% increase from AMD's 4Q05 server market share of 16.4%. In revenue terms, Opteron now has 27% of the server market.

Excluding those Dell PowerEdge server with Intel Celeron inside, Opteron's share might be even higher.

AMD had 21.4% of the global x86 market in 4Q05. Its share should have increased by another 1% in 1Q06. I analysed this in another post.

You are leaving aside the obvoius candidate coprocessor: The 3D graphics accelerator. I don't wonder if, but when, the video card will go into a Hypertransport socket
