A main driver for the period is the build-out of infrastructure to support cloud and hybrid-cloud implementations. As such, x86 server shipments are up by 5.3% Y-o-Y with revenues growing by 16.7%, while RISC/Itanium Unix servers are down 2.3% Y-o-Y in shipments and 18.3% Y-o-Y in revenues.

The "other" CPU category-- primarily consisting of mainframes-- shows a 54.5% Y-o-Y  increase.
