Nah, just that they don't have all the figures in neat order. This always happens, since they don't need to get them right other than the annual reports.

Lol I know. I was just making fun of the fact that those figures are not important for them, just approximate numbers they trow around, and yet it is like 500 times more than 95% of world's population will ever earn in their entire life.

not surprising with this news and its boring. they're still dominating over the competitions with a very huge gap, but some of peeps reject to say it's a monopoly practice because the mediocre one is still alive, and perhaps will collapse in near future..
what a sad story..

It would seem to me that Intel is not suffering even if they are "flat". The fact that the economy is in such turmoil all over the world and yet Intel is managing to stay level must mean one thing they have a good product that every one want's or needs. You can say Intel is the largest this and biggest that, But they too are at the mercy of the economy. Intel is doing well because they have a strong product and strong marketing.

Intel, how about those 6 or 8 cores? Are you still selling them as extreme with extreme grotesque price?

Profits are actually down 14% and PC sales are down just over 8% too:

It seems data centre revenues have partially shielded the drop in desktop sales,although costs have gone up.

The revenue was within what Intel predicted:

http://newsroom.intel.com/community/intel_newsroom/blog/2012/09/07/intel-lowers-third-quarter-revenue-outlook

They expected $13.2 to $13.5 billion in revenue,instead of the previously expected $13.8 to $14.8 billion it seems.

Of course, given that its still a niche product. I don't see the need to mass produce 6 or 8 real cores yet, especially when 4 IVB cores can stomp almost all competition.
