While responding to a question from an analyst at the Citi Global Tech Conference, Intel's Jason Grebe, Corporate Vice President, General manager Cloud Platforms and Technology Group, admitted that the chip giant is losing marketshare to AMD.
He didn't call AMD by name, but revealed that Intel lost some marketshare in the low-end mobile market as well as in the channel desktop market.
In general, if there is a CPU sale happening on the planet, we want to be involved in it. So we don’t look at any segment of the market and say, okay, we are going to walk away from that segment or that we’re not be interested there. We want to aggressively compete in all segments. As we have gone through the supply issue kind of in the last six to 12 months on the PC side, we had to walk away from some low-end mobile share as well as some channel desktop share. But as we continue to improve our supply situation, we’ll continue to get more aggressive there. – Jason Grebe, Intel.
Asked about how Intel plans to address NVIDIA, Grebe said Intel will get into the GPU business "1.5 years, 2 years from now." He added that over 70 percent of workloads over the next couple of years will involve some kind of AI, which is one of the reasons why Intel is working on its Xe graphic architecture.
