SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., 7 Jan. 2008. Microprocessor giant Intel Corp. in Santa Clara, Calif., is in a good position to remain a key player in the electronics business, despite many big recent changes, report analysts at In-Stat in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Intel has gone through dramatic changes since the beginning of 2006, including hiring a new CEO in Paul Otellini, In-Stat analysts say. Other major changes include cost cutting because of increased competition from AMD, a completely new product line, and new product strategies to enable expansion of the x86 architecture into new markets like discrete graphics, consumer electronics, and ultra-mobile devices, the market research firm says.
"Despite the challenges, Intel remains in a good position to transition with the market and remain a driver in the direction of technology, if it can remain competitive in these new markets," says Jim McGregor, In-Stat analyst.
In a new report,In-Stat finds that Intel's LPIA microprocessors are the keys to the company's future microprocessors and consumer SoC solutions; the first product in the Larrabee product family, which is targeting graphics, will bring together a new high-speed on-chip interconnect, LPIA processor core(s), graphics cores(s) and die stacking for cache memory; and although Intel has changed its memory strategy to focus on NAND, In-Stat believes that Intel will likely exit the discrete Flash market within a few years because of difficultly making a positive ROI.
