AMD is showing it's strengths in the market, with just over 20% of desktops, and 17.8% of all PC's globally being based around an AMD processor.  With their ~25% price reduction on most CPU's just before the christmas season, that number could be different by Q1, 2006.

"Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) surpassed a 20% share of the desktop PC-use CPU market worldwide in the third quarter of 2005, its first time since 2001, according to Mercury Research. The vendor grabbed a 20.4% share, following Intel with 77.5%.

After the introduction of the Turion 64 mobile technology CPUs in August of this year, AMD's notebook CPU shipments jumped by 55% sequentially in the third quarter."
