AMD slips off of top 10 chip suppliers list

The company that not so long ago was battering rival Intel Corp.’s flagging market and mindshare, continues to take it on the chin. Dale Ford, a vice president at market research firm iSuppli Corp., said AMD’s sagging numbers in the first and second quarter of this year left the company in their number 11 spot.

“Relative to Intel, there’s a little bit of a pick up from Q1, but you couldn’t say there’s real momentum,” said Ford. “The first and second quarters of this year were really rough for them. The third quarter was a very nice quarter for them, but in a year-over-year comparison, they’re still not where they were.” (link)
