Market research firm IDC recently indicated that Advanced Micro Devices commanded 27.8% share of 4P server market in the U.S. in the most recent quarter, which is a proof of the company’s success in the enterprise-oriented computers.

“Server is the market segment, where our momentum is probably the most impressive. We have an accelerating extension in both the number of configurations as well as a number of offerings for configuration from each of our partners since the beginning of this year,” said Henri Richard, AMD’s Executive Vice President, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer.

During a recent presentation at its Analyst Day 2005, AMD said that according to IDC, its market share in the 4P server market in the USA was 27.8% in Q1 2005, up 34% quarter-over-quarter. In Q3 2004 market share was 13.7%, in Q4 2004 the Sunnyvale, California-based chipmaker commanded 20.8% share of 4P server market in the USA.

AMD said its rising market share was because of superior performance and lower power consumption of AMD Opteron processors. Another driver was broad number of AMD Opteron-based server configuration. For instance, since November, 2004, the number of AMD64 server platforms grew from 8 to 25.

Advanced Micro Devices did not reveal any market share figures for global server shipments as well as 2P server shipments. Intel has been leading in terms of market share in the server market for a number of years already with the bulk of the revenue coming from relatively affordable server processors aimed at 2P machines.

The processor maker AMD Opteron processor growth is planned to exceed 200% for 2005. Quite naturally, AMD does not provide any volume-related figures for its processors.
