Even though the decline, according to FBR Capital Markets, an investment bank, seems to be relatively slight in the first quarter (Q1), the demand towards PCs will also not increase in Q2.
"Our contacts suggest Intel's Sandy Bridge products are not stimulating as much end demand as expected, likely impacting AMD too," said an analyst with FBR Capital Markets in a research note for clients," said an FBR analyst in a note for clients, reports StreetInsider web-site.
