Posted by at 3:16 am on November 10, 2009

According to new IDC data, notebook sales were over the top this last summer.. Shipments of mobile processors   jumped 35.7 percent compared to the spring and grew more than three times faster than desktop CPUs, which advanced 11.4 percent at the same time. Server processors like Intel’s Xeon , sales grew by 12.2 percent during the same period.

The research group pinpoints the continued growth of netbooks   as a primary factor but also as a drain on the health of system builders. Although the total computer processor business saw its shipments jump 23 percent season-to-season, revenue only grew 14.1 percent. The Intel Atom processor is blamed for propping up shipment numbers without adding much to the bottom line health.

Intel benefited from the mobile focus as it gained 2.2 percent extra share of the total processor market and reached 81.1 percent. AMD lost nearly as much to fall to 18.7 percent. VIA is left with the rest at just 0.2 percent.
