As explained in the post about the job cuts, they are restructuring to move away from PC-focused sales. In other words, silicon limits are smacking their ass, so they need to look elsewhere in order to keep revenues high.

The data center and Internet of Things (IoT) businesses are Intel's primary growth engines, with memory and field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) accelerating these opportunities - fueling a virtuous cycle of growth for the company. These growth businesses delivered $2.2 billion in revenue growth last year, and made up 40 percent of revenue and the majority of operating profit, which largely offset the decline in the PC market segment.

But it's not because their profit margins on every PC sold are wider. Even if PC sales go down 10%, they're probably making 20%+ more per sale simply because they can pack so many on a wafer.

Even so, those 12,000 employees laid off aren't going to be able to improve their capability in terms of delivering cloud products.

The only way this makes sense to me is if they're preempting Zen. The pie is undeniably shrinking and that shrinking will accelerate with the launch of Zen which means they don't need to produce as many chips in the next few years. 12,000 is still a lot of jobs and you'd think they'd be hiring people to research new substrates/technology.
