PLEASE INSERT THIS BETWEEN INTEL AND MOTOROLA: AMD
Your article on microprocessor vendors, "The reward of many RISCs" (Information Processing, Mar. 30), is correct in naming Intel the industry's No. 1 supplier of microprocessors for computers. However, your chart showing Motorola as the No. 2 supplier, with just more than 3 million microprocessors for computers shipped last year, is well off the mark. In fact, Advanced Micro Devices Inc. is easily the second-leading manufacturer of microprocessors for computers, with more than 5 million units sold in 1991. This year, the gap between Intel's No. 1 position and AMD's second-place rank will get smaller, while the gap between AMD and Motorola will widen as our Am386 microprocessor family continues to gain market share.
