In a research note released today, Wall Street watching investment firm Lehman Brothers once again lowered its earnings per share (EPS) estimates for AMD, due to what it said was "fierce competition" from market-leading rival Intel Corp.

For the industry as a whole, however, the outlook is much brighter. Lehman said that new multicore processor launches and "steadily improving traction" in the consumer market for Microsoft's Vista operating system should lift growth in the second half of 2007 and in 2008. The firm said the MPU market is set to grow at a rate of 9 percent year-over-year in 2007 and 12 percent in 2008, after just 6 percent growth in 2006.
