insane schrijft: "Intel heeft in de 4 kwartaal van 1999 heel goede zaken gedaan. Omzet is $8,2 miljard vergeleken met met $7,61 van 1998. Ze hebben een winst van $2,11 miljard vergeleken met $2,06 miljard van 1998. Cijfers van AMD worden volgende week vrij gegeven, hopen dat ze breakeven gaan halen":
Intel turned in good gains for its financial quarter to the end of its fourth quarter, with revenues rising by eight per cent to $8.2 billion, compared to $7.61 billion for the equivalent quarter last year.
Net profit for the quarter amounted to $2.11 billion, compared to $2.06 billion for the equivalent period in the last quarter last year.
Craig Barrett, CEO of Intel, said that his company's networking, wireless and internet businesses were likely to grow by as much as 50 per cent during the course of this year.
Barrett, however, warned that seasonal factors would make Intel's Q1 this year slightly weaker than the results for Q4.
Those seasonal factors are likely to be insufficiency of Intel's new Coppermine processors.
But chief financial officer Andy Bryant said that Intel's current inventory was not what the company desired during the period, although the .18 micron Coppermine process had successfully ramped during the period.
Plans for the coming year included the introduction of .13 micron technology, he said in a conference call.
