More on Intel's Q3: PC division sales -8% Y/Y, server division +6%. PC CPU prices -1% Q/Q and -4% Y/Y. Gross margin was 64.3%, nearly flat Q/Q and better than expected. But it's forecast to fall to 57%-59% in Q4, which suggests pricing/ASP weakness. 2012 capex, previously expected to be at low end of $12.1B-$12.9B range, is now expected to total just $11B-$11.6B (a negative for chip equipment stocks). INTC -1.9% AH. CC at 5PM ET (webcast). (CFO comments - PDF) (PR)
