Intel blames slow PC sales for bad Q1 2006

Posted on Friday, Apr 21 2006 @ 12:13 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Intel reported its first quarter financial results on Wednesday and blamed a weak PC market for its poor results.
Wall Street doesn't appear to be buying Otellini's take on the status of Intel's business. A Merrill Lynch analyst earlier this month urged Intel to consider whether or not Otellini is really the right man to revive the firm, which has fallen behind AMD on desktop and server processor performance.

AMD last week reported an increase in notebook, desktop and server processor sales, while posting a more than 70 per cent rise in overall revenue. Like Intel, AMD did point to the PC processor market as its slowest segment.

They need Conroe/Merom/Woodcrest asap. But, as usual they want to wait till the entire business has gone to **** before they start selling any such chips. Oh well, if they want to HAND the business to AMD I guess they can do that!

These processors will arrive in the third quarter of this year and based on what I hear and read they will kick AMD's butt.
