Intel (INTC) accounted for 15.6% of all chip sales in 2011, estimates iSuppli, up 250 bps Y/Y. Rising selling prices for Intel's PC CPUs (fueled by its Sandy Bridge launch), strong Xeon server CPU sales, and the acquisiton of Infineon's mobile baseband unit drove the share gains. Samsung (SSNLF.PK) remained the world's #2 chipmaker, while baseband giant Qualcomm (QCOM) rose 3 spots to #6.
