Intel servers encroach on total market

Intel servers are accounting for an increasing fraction of the overall server market, according to market research firm IDC. In the first quarter of 2001, Intel server sales declined 12 percent to $4.6 billion worldwide, but that decline was less than the overall server market decline of 21 percent to $11.9 billion for the quarter, "therefore Intel-based systems continued to gain share," said analyst Mark Melenovsky. Compaq Computer--an independent company in the first quarter of 2001 but now a part of Hewlett-Packard--led the competition with 32.6 percent of the Intel server sales, Melenovsky said Tuesday. Dell was in second place with 19 percent, IBM in third with 14.7 percent, HP fourth with 7.9 percent and Fujitsu in fifth with 6.1 percent.
