Intel reports record third quarter revenues
Intel has published its third quarter earnings. The chip giant posted record revenues of $9.96 billion, up 8% from the second quarter and 18% from the third quarter of last year. Intel also set records for total microprocessor, chipset, flash memory, and wireless connectivity unit shipments. However, despite record revenues and shipments, Intel's net income for the third quarter fell to $2 billion2% lower than that of the second quarter of this year. Net income was up 5% from the third quarter of last year, though.
There's more to this earnings report than just financial numbers; Intel CEO Paul Otellini also slipped in a little teaser:
"Execution remained solid as we launched our new dual-core server platform ahead of schedule and began shipping microprocessors built on our industry-leading 65nm process technology. The combination of our 65nm manufacturing network, broad range of new dual-core processors and unique ability to provide platform solutions positions us well for continued growth."
Unfortunately, Otellini doesn't reveal which 65-nano processors are shipping, or in what volumes.
