Sources please : ) Those numbers sound like utter bullshit. I know for a fact that IBM dominates the 8S+ market, and they are pretty much a Xeon only company. That means that AMD could not have had 100% market share.
I know that AMD had >50% of the 4S+ market at one point (prior to Tigerton and Nehalem), but I doubt they had >50% of the 2S market. Their marketshare has steeply declined to well under 50% for the 4S market with the introduction of Dunnington and Nehalem-EX though (especially the latter).
