The WSTS actual sales data for January is an estimate of the global total sales data based on extrapolation from the actual sales data WSTS obtains from more than 50 participants. With Intel involved WSTS reckoned participants were responsible for about 75 percent of sales. Without Intel it will be a little over half...and WSTS will, or have, changed their fudge factor accordingly. We have been told that AMD dropped out late in 2011 so we do not think AMD sales data was captured. We don't know about Intel. As they were first reported to have dropped out of WSTS on February 28 it is possible that they did partipate in January's tally but not thereafter. But either way WSTS will be using methods to estimate Intel's contribution to global chip sales.

So I called up WSTS and asked the same question; this WSTS asked me are you a subscriber? I said no - . I have only a simple question: is Intel included yes or no. The WSTS lady hung up on me. I called her back and she told me to call the SIA...
