Intel promises no more chip shortages, giving priority to multi-core processors

  According to "PC World", Intel's new CEO Bob Swan said on Thursday that the company's manufacturing process will no longer be a stumbling block to customer development.

Intel will once again invest in 14nm process chips to increase its capacity, and will also launch more next-generation 10nm process products as planned.

The Client Computing Group, which is responsible for the PC business, faced many obstacles in the past, and Intel gradually no longer emphasized this part of the development, but this time, the PC business revenue has grown and the outlook is optimistic, but it has been a relatively successful data center business revenue in the past. The profit fell.

Intel decided to withdraw from the 5G mobile phone modem market, and Swan said that by reducing the scope of the business, they will be able to do their best to do the best.

According to "PC World", Microsoft's chief financial officer Amy Hood mentioned in the Microsoft conference call that the PC market for Windows is stronger than they expected because the chip supply reached the target for the second quarter. "PC World" believes that this may also mean that Intel's manufacturing has returned to the right track.

Intel's PC market plan will not change much. In the second quarter, the quality of the 10 nanometer chip "Ice Lake" will continue to be improved. It is expected that the PC with this chip will appear on the market before the Christmas holiday. .

The shortage of Intel chips affected the entire PC market, and Gartner Consulting estimated that global PC delivery fell by 4.6% in the first quarter of 2019. Intel's competitor AMD has benefited from it. According to "Mercury Research", AMD's market share in the desktop and notebook markets increased in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Swan said that reaching the customer demand and launching 10 nanometer related products is the two goals that need to be achieved, and is progressing. In the past, insufficient supply has a great impact on customers. He promised that it will never affect customers. The development of things happens.

In addition, Swan also said that Intel will give priority to manufacturing multi-core processors instead of smaller, cheaper chips. "PC World" believes that the ninth generation of desktop processor chips will be the focus of its production.
