Intel feels sorry for neglecting desktop PC market

Speaking at last week's Citi Global Technology Conference, Kirk Skaugen, Intel's Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Client Computing Group, acknowledged that the chip giant neglected the tower desktop PC market last year. Skaugen admitted that not putting in R&D to launch Broadwell parts for the desktop was a mistake that hurt Intel financially:
Skaugen who’s Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Client Computing Group at Intel said that not launching desktop oriented Broadwell CPUs last year was a “mistake”.

I mentioned desktop’s more than a $10 billion business for Intel. We didn’t build a next generation core product our last product for Towers. We made an experiment and we said maybe we are putting technology in to the market too fast, but let’s not build a chip for the mainstream Tower business, more than a $10 billion business.

Turns out that was a mistake. It saved us some R&D, but XP end of life and then there was no reason to buy a PC this year.
