Intel's stock is down 11.92 percent to $49.99 today after a lackluster earnings report from the chip giant. Intel's third-quarter revenue was up 5 percent year-over-year to $19.2 billion and non-GAAP net income soared 54 percent to $7.0 billion. Adjusted earnings per share came in at $1.71, which far exceeded the $1.11 Wall Street consensus.

The big stinker was that Intel's fourth-quarter estimates are below Wall Street's forecast. Intel predicts it will earn 90 cents per share on revenue of $18.3 billion, which is below the $1.01 earnings per share and $18.25 billion in revenue that financial analysts had estimated. Analysts are also worried that Intel's higher future capital expenditure will put a burden on earnings growth in the coming years.
  • Third-quarter GAAP revenue of $19.2 billion, up 5% year over year (YoY), and non-GAAP revenue of $18.1 billion, up 5% YoY. Achieved all-time record revenue in Intel's Internet of Things Group (IOTG) and record third-quarter revenue in the Data Center Group (DCG) and Mobileye businesses.
  • Third-quarter GAAP earnings-per-share (EPS) was $1.67; non-GAAP EPS was $1.71, which exceeded July guidance by $0.61. Exceeded July guidance for EPS and gross margin.
  • Raising full-year 2021 EPS and gross margin guidance. Now expecting GAAP EPS of $4.50 and non-GAAP EPS of $5.28 and GAAP gross margin of 55% and non-GAAP gross margin of 57%.
  • Intel CFO George Davis announced plans to retire in May 2022.
SANTA CLARA, Calif., October 21, 2021 -- Intel Corporation today reported third-quarter 2021 financial results.

“Q3 shone an even greater spotlight on the global demand for semiconductors, where Intel has the unique breadth and scale to lead. Our focus on execution continued as we started delivering on our IDM 2.0 commitments. We broke ground on new fabs, shared our accelerated path to regain process performance leadership, and unveiled our most dramatic architectural innovations in a decade. We also announced major customer wins across every part of our business,” said Pat Gelsinger, Intel CEO. “We are still in the early stages of our journey, but I see the enormous opportunity ahead, and I couldn’t be prouder of the progress we are making towards that opportunity.”

MSI predicts DDR5 will be 50-60 percent more expensive

1 day ago
MSI logo
Soon we'll see the arrival of Intel's Alder Lake-S, the first desktop CPU platform with support for DDR5 memory. As is typical, new memory costs a lot more than mature memory so early adopters can expect to pay a big premium versus DDR4. In a new blog post, MSI predicts DDR5 will be roughly 50-60 percent more expensive than DDR4:
DDR5 vs. DDR4 Memory Costs
Historically, newer memory technology has always commanded close to a 30-40% premium over the previous generation. However, this time, DDR5 includes additional components that have driven the costs up further. As a result, we expect a 50-60% price premium compared to DDR4 at launch.

It typically takes around 2 years to reach price parity with previous generations, and we expect trends to remain similar with DDR5 modules as well.

— Sara Lin, MSI
The Intel Z690 chipset supports both DDR4 and DDR5 memory, so customers will be able to continue to use DDR4 memory by opting for a DDR4-based Z690 motherboard.

SK Hynix starts work on HBM3

2 days ago
SK Hynix reveals it kicked off the development of HBM3, the successor to HBM2E. The firm says HBM3 will support a bandwidth of up to 819GB/s and enable per-chip capacities of 16GB and 24GB. HBM3 is mainly aimed at HPC and AI applications:
SK hynix Inc. (or “the Company”, www.skhynix.com) announced that it has become the first in the industry to successfully develop the High Bandwidth Memory 3, the world’s best-performing DRAM.

HBM3, the fourth generation of the HBM technology* with a combination of multiple DRAM chips vertically connected, is a high value product that innovatively raises the data processing rate.

*Previous three generations are HBM, HBM2 and HBM2E, which is an update to the HBM2 specification with increased bandwidth and capacities.

The latest development, which follows the start of mass production of HBM2E in July last year, is expected to help consolidate the company’s leadership in the market. SK hynix was also the first in the industry to start mass production of HBM2E.

SK hynix’s HBM3 is not only the fastest DRAM in the world, but also comes with the biggest capacity and significantly improved level of quality.

The latest product can process up to 819GB (Gigabyte) per second, meaning that 163 FHD (full-HD) movies (5GB each) can be transmitted in a single second. This represents a 78% increase in the data-processing speed compared with the HBM2E.

It also corrects data (bit) errors with the help of the built-in on-die error-correction code, significantly improving the reliability of the product.

SK hynix’s HBM3 will be provided in two capacity types of 24GB – the industry’s biggest — and 16GB. For the 24GB product, SK hynix engineers ground the height of a DRAM chip to approximately 30 micrometer (?m, 10-6m), equivalent to a third of an A4 paper’s thickness, before vertically stacking 12 chips using the through silicon via technology.

*Through Silicon Via (TSV): An interconnecting technology that links the upper and lower chips with electrode that vertically passes through thousands of fine holes on DRAM chips

HBM3 is expected to be mainly adopted by high-performance data centers as well as machine learning platforms that enhance the level of artificial intelligence and super computing performance used to conduct climate change analysis and drug development.

“Since its launch of the world’s first HBM DRAM, SK hynix has succeeded in developing the industry’s first HBM3 after leading the HBM2E market,” said Seon-yong Cha, Executive Vice President in charge of the DRAM development. “We will continue our efforts to solidify our leadership in the premium memory market and help boost the values of our customers by providing products that are in line with the ESG management standards.”

    Made for Durability
    The SGK60 is especially characterized by its stable, long-lasting Kailh-BOX switches: They all have an operating life cycle of at least 80 million keystrokes, while the design form protects the switch from dust and dirt. In addition, 14 especially durable PBT keycaps are included. Thanks to double-injection technology, these should offer long-lasting use without showing signs of wear.
