Intel has in the past quarter sold five million chips for tablets, but revenue from mobile and communications division fell 61 percent. Sales of laptops seems to be stabilizing. Intel, however, should have especially its data center sales.
According to Intel CEO Brian Krzanich is 80 to 90 percent of the tablets with Intel SOCs an Android model; the other tablets concern Windows versions. Most devices have a price of between 125 and 250 dollars. Krzanich has set itself the objective to put 40 million tablet processors in a year and coming quarters should subsidies for manufacturers made sure that objective is achieved.
Intel wants to get some time foothold in the market for smartphones and tablets, which are still being dominated. ARM Revenues from the Mobile & Communications branch fell , however, by 61 percent to $ 155 million, but that is according to the CEO because Intel is working on the transition to mobile chips with integrated 4G and the costs associated with the grants for tablet manufacturers .
It was striking that Intel was able to register for the supply of processors for laptops., For the first time since the second quarter of 2012, an increase compared to last year That could also be due to the sale of 2-in-1 hybrids, which would be 20 percent higher than the previous quarter, while last quarter that includes the month of December with traditionally high sales.
The supply of desktop chips remain about the same as a year ago. Deliveries rose by 1 percent, but revenue was down 1 percent for Intel anyway, because the average price per chip supplied decreased by 3 percent. Especially the consumer market remains weak, according Krzanich, though he expected due to the fact that people get their Windows XP systems to replace that improvement is coming.
The data center and enterprise market continues to grow concerned at Intel: revenues from data center products increased 11 percent compared to last year and the cloud, network and storage divisions could all record growth of over 20 percent. Another important growth market for Intel’s Internet of Things: sales grew 32 percent, with particularly strong demand for chips for automotive and point-of-sale systems ensured. Eventually the quarterly sales amounted to 12.76 billion U.S. dollars, an increase of 1.5 percent compared to last year, but profits fell by 4.8 percent.
