AMD takes the fight to Intel!

AMD is challenging Intel ever more. Today they unveiled their new dual core mobile chip for laptops that should improve battery life and performance. And earlier this week they announced that they will be investing $2.5bn in Germany to boost production.

According to Mercury Research, AMD had 21.1% of PC processor shipments in the first quarter, a sharp gain from the 16.9% share it had a year earlier.

And today, AMD said it expects to increase that share to one third of the micro-processor market by 2008. Now that's one heck of a challenge to Intel - the glove has been thrown down!
