Puma is gonna tear Intel

100 Puma laptops ganging on poor centrino is not going to be a pretty scene.

Right now you've got to admit AMD is looking - ever so slightly - more likely to BK than Intel. Just a teeny weeny bit. :)

The AMD Puma Laptop platform looks much stronger than Centrino. I like the idea of being able to use alternative Wireless cards unlike Intel's Centrino. The idea of using both Dedicated and Integrated graphics is also highly innovative this would prolong battery life while not at the mains. High end GFX chips eat battery life even when in there lower state, so AMD have come up with a logical solution. It looks like Intel Centrino will lose many sales an AMD dominated laptop market looks likely.
AMD have had a harsh time recently with falling revenue, but AMD are the company who have come up with the Technological advances. Intel copy AMD and Intel CPU's have reliability problems too it seems. AMD are set to come back on top and rightly so.

Things just keep getting worse and worse for AMD!

AMD market share in graphics cards drops to new lows:

After unusually strong second and third quarters, the desktop graphics card market saw exceptional growth in shipments in the fourth quarter of last year, according to a new report by Jon Peddie Research. The market research firm says unit shipments increased by a staggering 50.3% between Q4 2006 and Q4 2007, and a still-impressive 23% sequentially between Q3 and Q4 2007. The overall value of the desktop graphics card market also increased 46.3% year-over-year, but lower average selling prices actually led to a sequential decrease of 0.6%.

Looking at market share, JPR's numbers suggest that AMD actually lost a fair amount of ground to Nvidia in Q4 despite the arrival of its Radeon HD 3800 series. Nvidia reportedly expanded its slice of the desktop graphics card market from 64% in the third quarter to 71%, leaving AMD with less than a third of all shipments. The report JPR sent us doesn't include any speculation on the cause of Nvidia's gains, but we'd be willing to bet the late October launch of the popular GeForce 8800 GT had something to do with it.

AMD BK Q2'08.
