The key issue for Intel now is to mass-produce and market 10nm process products as soon as possible, and Intel today renewed its commitment that the Ice Lake processor will be released as scheduled during the shopping season at the end of the year (although there are no desktop products for the time being).
However, after a long delay of 10 nm, it will be impossible for Intel to become the main force for a while and a half. 14 nm will probably remain Intel's most dependable technology for a long time. So Intel is also increasing its investment in 14 nm and expanding its capacity. The road map leaked yesterday also shows that Intel will still play a major role in 14 nm in the desktop market in the next two years.
It is worth mentioning that Microsoft's statement after the release of the financial report shows that the serious shortage of Intel processors has greatly improved.
Microsoft CFO Amy Hood told investors: "WindowsThe overall PC market is much stronger than expected, mainly because the chip supply has been greatly improved, which can better meet the commercial and high-end consumer demand in the second quarter, as well as the commercial demand in the third quarter.
Microsoft does not name Intel, but considering Intel's dominant position in the processor market, it is self-evident that AMD Revlon has made some contributions, including desktops and notebooks.
According to the financial report, Intel's revenue in the first quarter of 2019 was 16.1 billion US dollars, which was the same as that of the previous year. PC client computing business was 8.6 billion US dollars, up 3% from the previous year. Game, large business, baseband and other product lines were growing. Data center business was 4.9 billion US dollars, down 7% from the previous year, mainly due to the weak market and overstock of inventory in China.
