Intel vows mobile push following revenue slip

Quarterly revenue not on-track for growth.

Bet AMD wishes it could make 2bil in profit. Intel may have to start selling fab space to make cash been rumours for months that it would do so.

Lackluster new products for the PC since Sandy Bridge burst onto the scene with rapturous applause, one reason why PC market is stale is that there's not enough performance jump from Sandy Bridge to Haswell to make enthusiasts want to upgrade.

Leaving any chance of growth in system sales, which of course isn't a growth area - most business PC's get replaced in 5 year cycles now and the mass market is choosing to buy portable devices over PC's.

The focus on FinFet processes and power reduction are both long term investment for future releases and die shrinks, Intel probably knew this and accept the short term pain in terms of these developments.

Although it's proven that the TIM they use between the die and IHS is exaggerating the heat issue in an overlcocked state, I hoped they would of at least fixed this.

$2bn is still $2bn - I'd like to know more about their future plans for the desktop, this switch to the mobile market is all well and good, but that market is saturated and it will take years to take market share unless they and their partners innovate beyond the products available today.

Future plans for the desktop are irrelevant. There are not enough ehthusiasts to warrant investment in developing an uber-CPU, and the current ones are crazy powerful for most people's needs, and then some.

The PC market is sliding down; mobile devices are going up. Where does it make more sense to focus Intel's efforts?

Nexxo maybe right - desktop users are fast becoming relics of the old republic, the processing power requirements of a gaming PC will be governed by consoles which as we know for the next 4-7 years are not even as powerful as todays sandy bridge systems....maybe deves will work on doing more with more cores in future.

I guess the mhz wars are over

Intel are only a challenger in the mobile sector, to succeed in their ascension they need to align themselves with the next big innovation (ARM with it's relationship with Apple and Android have this arena well and truly sewn up) - google glasses and smart watches are novel but they are essentially extensions of existing innovation (ie smartphones) - they need to be the engine behind whatever comes after smartphones and smart watches and google glasses - Intel putting more effort into this market place makes some sense based on the sheer volume.

However, due to the saturation of the technologies in that sector until that next big idea, the mobile arena is hardly going to be the high margin cash cow the desktop and server computing remains to be.....would not be so bad but to make Haswell better than it is, all they needed was different TIM between die and IHS.

I don't agree with everyone who see the demise of desktops, the market is shifting towards mobile computing and Intel would be wise to do all they can to address the needs of computing on low power, that is if they are not to late to the party.

In the past if you wanted a computer the only choice you had was a desktop. Now people have a choice on what suits their needs best, so in time i believe the market will find its own level.

Its just a matter of what percentage of the market will be made up of low power (mobile) processors and what percentage will be made up of faster processors (desktop,server)
