Opteron has 48.1% of the multi-processor server market in US

Gartner reports that AMD has taken nearly half of the multi-processor server market in US. AMD's share in overall x86 server space is 26%. Opteron server revenue topped $1 billion. If you take out those $299 Celeron and Pentium D "servers" out of the stats, AMD's share will be substantially bigger.

SUN's server revenue surged 8% year/year. SUN gained across the board, from x64 to big-iron. IBM, DELL and Fujitsu's server revenue dropped 4%, 2%, 14%, respectively, while HP's server revenue was flat.

How about the fact that with Dell, AMD hasn't had a chance (and even doesn't now) to get in any 2P Servers, it's not exactly fair to assess it.

Seen the GPU markets lately? Intel has some BS like 30% over ATI and nVidia, why is this? Because they count in all the Integrated Graphics on motherboards from Dell and others, which again is total BS and is not a fair assessment of the market.
