Revenue from servers with Intel processors is due to exceed revenue from servers with reduced instruction set computing (RISC) processors for the first time in 2003, bringing in close to $20bn (£12.7bn).

According to researcher Dataquest, Intel-based servers sales will continue the growth trend in 2003 that they have established over the past six years, fuelling a turnaround in the server market.

Intel-based server shipments have increased annually since the first quarter of 1996, when the figures were first tracked, rising to 87% of all servers shipped.

Sales of RISC-based servers are also expected to be strong in 2003, totalling about $18bn (£11.4bn).

The researcher predicted that Linux server-based shipments will double in 2003 to reach 800,000 units. Dataquest believed new standards will emerge next year that will spark modular computing.
