Market research firm In-Stat predicts Intel will see strong growth for its mobile and server x86 processors, with moderate growth for desktop PC processors over the next several years, writes DigiTimes.

Intel's overall CPU chipsets are expected to rise from 153 million units in 2004 to 241 million in 2009, says In-Stat.

New trends will be the shift to dual-core CPUs for PCs, and multi-core chips for servers, to increase performance while maintaining or decreasing power consumption. A new processor generation that features on-chip, core-to-core communication and shared cache will also make inroads.
