Intel Reports Best Quarter Ever in 42-year History

Investors should be glad to hear that Intel's doing well in business these days.

Intel Corporation today reported second-quarter revenue of $10.8 billion, up 34 percent year-over-year. The company reported operating income of $4.0 billion, net income of $2.9 billion and EPS of 51 cents.

"Strong demand from corporate customers for our most advanced microprocessors helped Intel achieve the best quarter in the company's 42-year history," said Paul Otellini, Intel president and CEO. "Our process technology lead plus compelling architectural designs increasingly differentiate Intel-based products in the marketplace. The PC and server segments are healthy and the demand for leading-edge technology will continue to increase for the foreseeable future."

    I'm going to pin this on AMD being scarce in the market.
    I'd love more laptops with a 25watt x2 and 5670m.
    Or even any highend low-TDP AMD chips for laptops...

    Honestly, I believe AMD could dramatically step up their sales if they put out a decent laptop chip already. D:

    jrharbortAMD already has some excellent mobile offerings, and more coming shortly(X920 BE anyone?). It's the poor adoption by manufacturers that is hurting AMD at the moment. More people need to step up and see AMD's potential. But I guess a lot of us are waiting for bulldozer and fusion. =/


    Plus the fact that Intel's marketing is still better than AMD. A lot of people know or hear of Centrino, Core or Pentium, but not much of Vision, Phenom or Turion.

    Yep, you nailed it there. Pretty much anyone could hum the Intel jingle for you.

    It's prices like theirs that cause inflation...
