Intel sales up, AMD's down

Guardian writes:

"It's a pretty safe bet that if you were asked to name the leading chip manufacturer, you'd guess right: it's Intel. If you were asked for the top three in this $274 billion market, you'd probably get the other two wrong. They are Samsung Electronics and Toshiba. Hard luck if you said Texas Instruments: this once mighty chip giant is now in fourth place with sales worth $11.8bn, according to Gartner's latest list of The Top 10 Worldwide Semiconductor Vendors by Revenue Estimates.

Intel is top by a wide margin, with sales increasing by 10.7% to $33.8bn. Toshiba ($11.8bn) has just jumped into third place with 20.8% growth. It benefited from increased sales of the Sony PlayStation 3."

How did the PS3 help help Toshiba out ? I thought if anything, it hurt them on the format war front ?

As the Corleones once said, this is strictly business. Not personal.

"Michael Corleone: [to Sonny] It's not personal, Sonny. It's strictly business."
