AMD and Intel downplay effect of tablets

Written by


Won’t eat into PC sales, much
Chipmakers Intel and AMD don’t appear to be overly concerned by ever growing tablet sales.

During last week’s conference calls, both outfits concluded that tablet sales won’t have much of an effect on their core business.

However, tablet sales seem to have had a negative effect on netbook sales, but they were declining even before tablets came along. Intel CEO Paul Otellini noted that discretionary spending was shifting towards netbooks instead of tablets, which basically means that people are buying toys are now choosing tablets.

AMD VP Rick Bergman believes tablets did not cannibalize PC sales in any significant way. He stressed that AMD views tablets as a market segment complementary to PCs.

Both Intel and AMD have tablet oriented chips, based on Bobcat and Atom cores, but neither can match ARM cores in terms of power efficiency and low cost. However, both companies are focusing on new form factors that could liven up the notebook market, such as ultrabooks and APU based ultraportables.

Riiiight, so when they dropped that cool $500-$800 on that iPad they were buying "toys"?!! This is EXACTLY why nobody that matters listens to AMD or wants the CEO job. Refer back to my first statement.

The PC is not miles ahead of a damn thing. Its playing console games, and copying the console not leading it! A fake @$$ Kinect and a busted 360 controller are proof. Let it go.

Considering you can now get sub $400 Sandy Bridge laptops the relevance of tablets has been reduced. All ULV 22nm Ivy Bridge will only further tablet irrelevance with outstanding battery life too. I don't see tablets living too much longer.

I have a tablet and it's no threat to PC market, as it has a different use at home. I only pick it up when I'm tired and want to read a book on my couch or browse online a bit. That's it, everything else is done on my PC. So basically a tablet is a little toy, nothing more.
