According to the most recent iSuppli Computer Systems research, Intel has gained microprocessor market share over second point, up 1.1% from 80.7% market share they had in Q2 2010. AMD, consequently, lost 1.1%. Matthew Wilkins, principal analyst for compute platforms research at IHS, said, "Intel in the second quarter benefited from the combination of a recovery in PC demand and strong shipment growth for its new Sandy Bridge line of microprocessors. Strong corporate PC sales were particularly beneficial to Intel, as the enterprise computing segment has been outperforming the consumer market." The increased market share could be due to Intel's strong GPU performance in their Sandy Bridge processors, although this data incorporates not only x86 processors but also RISC processors and other types.
