Intel financials set new records

14 Oct 2010

Revenue for the quarter was up 18% year-over-year to $11.1 billion, as Intel reports operating income of $4.1 billion and net income of $3.0 billion. 

“Intel’s third-quarter results set all-time records for revenue and operating income,” said Paul Otellini, Intel president and CEO. 

“These results were driven by solid demand from corporate customers, sales of our leadership products and continued growth in emerging markets,” he added. 

“Looking forward, we continue to see healthy worldwide demand for computing products of all types and are particularly excited about our next-generation processor, codenamed Sandy Bridge, and the many new designs around our Intel Atom processors in everything from the new Google TV products to a wide array of tablets based on Windows, Android and MeeGo operating systems.” Q3 2010 highlights
