Apple isn't the only firm posting impressive financial results for the last quarter. Intel did rather well for itself, too. The chip maker raked in a record $13 billion in revenue for the second quarter of this year, a 21% year-over-year increase. Net income hit $3 billion for the quarter, which is a mere 2% higher than for the same period last year. Here's how the numbers for this quarter compare to those from a couple of previous ones:
|Q2 2010||Q1 2011||Q2 2011|
|Revenue||$10.8 billion||$12.8 billion||$13.0 billion|
|Net profit||$2.9 billion||$3.2 billion||$3.0 billion|
Although the official press release says that Intel enjoyed double-digit revenue growth across all business units, it also concedes year-over-year revenues were down 15% for Atom processors and chipsets. The Atom division only accounted for $352 million in revenue, though, and the PC Client Group as a whole saw its revenue rise by 11%.
