Even though overall consumer CPU demand remains a bit weak, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich revealed during the company fourth-quarter earnings call that demand for enthusiast processors is booming. Overall client computing group revenue was down 8 percent, ut sales of the high-end Core i7 and K-series CPUs hit all-time volume records:
Even though the Client Computing Group ended the full year down 8%, we were excited to see that we were able to grow sequentially in the second and third and fourth quarters. As of November, 14 nanometer products made up more than 50% of the Client Computing volume. For the year, high-end Core i7 microprocessors and our K SKUs for gaming, both set all-time volume records, leading to our rich product mix.
Intel also revealed that its going to launch its Skylake-based V Core processor lineup for enterprise PCs sometime next week.
