Intel posts record quarterly earnings

Written by Fudzilla staff


Plans to take a stab at the tablet market
Intel has once again shown why it’s been the darling of Wall Street for decades.

The chipmaker has posted record earnings for the past quarter, $11.1 billion, up 18 percent year-on-year. Intel managed to do well in nearly all market segments and its upcoming products also show promise, so it’s likely that the company will extend its winning streak.

However, Intel CEO Paul Otellini admitted that the company was caught off guard by the strong interest for tablet products. He said that Intel would target the segment with all assets at its disposal.

“We think tablets are exciting and fully welcome their arrival. Apple has done a wonderful job reinventing the category.  Will they impact PC sales? Sure, at the margin they probably will,” said Otellini.

Ivy Bridge is meant to be still on track for 2H 2011. This just seems crazy. Intel are not going to release a whole new generation in Sandy Bridge and then replace it within 6 months!??

I guess they might just release a few 22nm parts like they did with 32nm but even that seems so unlikely right now. I mean we won't even have high-end Sand Bridge parts out yet and we will have the replacement for Sand Bridge at our door step!

Anyone know what Intel are really doing in 2011?

WTF???? :o :eek: :o
11.1 billions!!!!!!!

(that is more than a small country's earnings. And they are just a chip maker).

Intel is down almost -3% on the back of that news. Those fat cats at Wall Street are never happy!

I really doubt we'll be seeing Ivy Bridge in 2H 2011. Intel isn't even launching the high-end Sandy Bridge chips until Q3 '11 (the 6-core/12-thread and 8-core/16-thread chips).

I could maybe see Ivy Bridge in Q1 2012 for mobile and mainstream desktops with the higher end desktop/1S server and 2S server chips coming in Q3 2012.

Intel has slowed the tick-tock cycle for whatever reason (probably anti-trust) and I think you'll see the entire schedule adjusted down the line.

@Naterm

I agree, Intel seem to be slowing down just enough to let AMD get close again before they pull away.

You never know, they might just release a few 22nm chips just because its so much cheaper for them to make plus its only a die shrink so shouldn't really be a massive leap in performance especially taking into account that they control overclocking now so even if 22nm would clock much better it can't be exploited.

As a side note, i wonder if Intel would be allowed to buy nVidia? Intel have a surplus of cash and nVidia have big problems at the moment. Intel seem to want to get in the GPU game real bad and i would love to see what sweet cards they would make with nVidia's experience and Intel's far superior lithography technology.

They actually slowed down tick tock before the big AMD payout, in fact they did it because they wanted to give nehalem 'a sufficient lifecycle', in other words because they can.
Intel are bastards but at the moment they are years ahead of AMD and i am afraid 32nm Bulldozer, no matter how good it is, will not be comparable to Intel's 22nm chips, of course this has been AMD's dilemma for the last 6 years.

Seems very unlikely.

I don't think it's impossible, that in the future, intel would buy nVidia. Right now nVidia is overvalued and way too expensive.

However, they do have a lot of IP that would be of interest to intel. They have the best GPGPU hardware, they have CUDA, and a wide variety of assorted other technologies and patents.

You can moan all you want about CUDA, but it's fast becoming the GPGPU standard. The only way OpenCL can take off is if Apple really pushes it. Despite nVidia talking all kinds of shit about intel, it might be a decent purchase for intel after nVidia's stock price has been battered for a few years.

You know that intel is releasing unlocked chips, right? The days of getting another GHz out of a $50 processor are over, but I never really did that anyway. You can still buy $250-$500 chips and overclock the living hell out of them.
