Intel predicts Atom sales of 200 million units per year by 2012

AnandTech heard at the IDF that Intel is projecting sales of 1 billion Intel Architecture (IA) processors per year in the next decade. Intel also predicts Atom sales of 200 million units per year by 2012:
~1B IA processors shipping per year in the next decade. That makes much more sense. The plan is ~200M Atoms shipping per year by 2012. That's as many desktop CPUs as Intel is shipping today. Lofty goals Mr. Perlmutter, but we'd need a much better platform than what we have now - this is where Moorestown comes into play.
