It expects its Q1 revenue to reach approximately $1.5 billion, 22 percent more compared to Q1 of 2007, but 15 lower than in Q4 2007. It attributed the decline to seasonality and lower than expected sales.
The chipmaker confirmed it will layoff around 10 percent of its workforce (some 1650 souls) by the end of Q3 2008.
