Intel Reports First $11 Billion Revenue Quarter

“Intel’s third-quarter results set all-time records for revenue and operating income,” said Paul Otellini, Intel president and CEO. “These results were driven by solid demand from corporate customers, sales of our leadership products and continued growth in emerging markets. Looking forward, we continue to see healthy worldwide demand for computing products of all types and are particularly excited about our next-generation processor, codenamed Sandy Bridge, and the many new designs around our Intel Atom processors in everything from the new Google TV products to a wide array of tablets based on Windows, Android and MeeGo operating systems.”

Er, AMD?

Intel has as much of a monopoly as Apple does in other market segments: ie there is NOT a monopoly, only a market dominance due to customer choice. :pimp:

$3billion.... I read this after reading about AMD's lack of profit above, and my jaw dropped to the floor. Hang in there AMD! I'm looking forward to the release of bobcat for netbooks and the bulldozer( or w/e the desktop variant will be).
