AMD's motherboard channel market expected above 30% in June

  • Chicago (IL) - Citing increased demand in AMD products now that 45nm Phenom II CPUs are available, industry sources quoted by DigiTimes are saying AMD's motherboard channel market share should return above 30% by the end of June, 2009.

    Socket AM3-based motherboard growth remains low, primarily due to the high price of DDR3. However, Socket AM2+ motherboards, along with their built-in support for use of prior-generation CPUs and future drop-in upgrades, is believed to be driving the increase. The less expensive upgrade path will help AMD gain back lost market share.
