  • Why Intel Could Really Sell 30 Million Smartphone Processors [View article]
    Author says "dual-core does not generate heat as much as octa-core SoCs." and references a link, which doesn't mention octa core, but clearly says the opposite regarding Quad core vs fewer cores.

    "Less heat and power consumption: Most of the newer quad-core chips are so small and efficient; they can actually use less power and generate less heat than single-core systems."

    Your thesis is flawed.

    Furthermore, the number of cores is only as relevant as the software that is running them and usage model. If running poorly written software, your results will suck no matter the cores you use.

  • Intel's Financial Outlook Indicates Q2 Will Beat Expectations [View article]
    Bruce, SSD's have been in the enterprise for quite a while now. The question is whether this new disruptive cost will spur some big change. The enterprise will always value HDD's as well, believe it or not.

    Definitely have to agree that INTC has the Server and PC biz on lockdown for years to come. Even when the ARM camp finally gets some HW out there, you can bet they'll have a ways to go on the SW side.

    As far as disruptive pricing goes, I'm still awaiting INTC's move in the consumer space because at $409+ for a 400GB enterprise drive vs. samsung's 850 500GB for $189 on the consumer side...INTC has to get the price down to compete on the consumer side. It's do-able, but just not a clear slam dunk so far.

    Thanks Bruce, I understand, but the biggest market/growth will come on the consumer side. It seemed like INTC's talk of disruptive cost was beyond only enterprise. Otherwise, without getting consumer market share, they don't have much.

    Reviews of INTC"s SSD are coming...


    http://bit.ly/1DL9fZP

    The performance is there, but the cost is way high for a consumer targeted SSD....They're basically enterprise class and will not add much to the top/bottom line this year...Will keep an eye out for the first real consumer SSD from INTC that is cost disruptive...

  • Intel Earnings: Bad News Baked In, But One Longer-Term Problem [View article]
    Seeing as how DCG is becoming INTC's growth driver, the future server needs of GOOG, FB, APPL, NFLX, MSFT, AMZN come into question. I know these guys have all been in a major growth spurt for the last 5-7 years so when will this tail off ? They're all fighting for more MAU growth, which seems to be slowing in some cases, and gaining in others...

    Ok so you think a "real pc" experience is what we need here ? You should seriously consider becoming an Intel exec VP.
