While this will make data collecting somewhat more difficult on a monthly basis, earnings reports and guidance will still likely be provided by Intel and AMD on a regular basis, so much of the data will still be there (although probably not in the format that the WSTS would like).

We have been trying to gather comments from the industry on this issue. While industry officials try to downplay the significance of the news, this is an incredibly short-sighted move on the part of Intel. The industry, when its stops collecting data of its own market, will start losing its power. It starts losing its own voice -- against whatever unforeseeable battles/issues the industry would need to fight collectively. Tell us your thoughts.

Since the two giants have left the consortium WSTS will have to revamp the mission statement from start. As it will no longer be able to provide statistics for PC processors.

The WSTS data is useful for Market Share information provided you are comparing apples to apples AND you know the real sales numbers per category and companies participating. Some companies, even public ones, are not comfortable sharing much detail on their sales let alone a breakout of those sales by product category. I prefer to know my market share by looking at how my design wins are increasing against my peer competition, and how that translates into increasing revenues. Do I know the exact number? NO... but I do know it is increasing. The responsibilities of the company organization is to continue that trend as long as possible by providing true value to customers with their product offerings and solutions and support.
