AMD Going to China to Eat Intel's Lunch

China is the number 2 PC market in the world and Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE AMD) has 18 percent marketshare. It wants more and AMD is going to China. THis is just after Dell, Inc. (Nasdaq DELL) announced it will offer a second notebook with AMD chips.

According to IDC, AMD held a market share of 18 percent in China last year.

"Even though there are common denominators in each of the emerging markets, they are not all the same, by any means," Arenas said. "But still, AMD could become much stronger by looking at what are some of the product and resource requirements in those regions."

For instance, AMD is supplying processors in MIT's One Laptop per Child initiative. In 2004, the company also started a program to develop new technology that will bring affordable Internet access and computing capability to 50 percent of the world's population by 2015, Arenas said.
