Pressure from the smart phones population

The reason for Intel's monopoly getting challenged is the growing population of smart phones and tablets which are now outnumbering the no of Wintel products . These smart phones and tablets are based upon non Intel processors and that is the real cause for pressure on Intel to downsize.

Re: Intel inside becomes Intel out side now

To claim that Intel has not been innovative is not remotely accurate. Many well funded companies took runs at Intel, only for Intel beat them .... not just by manufacturing might, but by technical excellence.


They have been transitioning their current architecture into low power and arguably based on recent tablets they are competitive.



Add in strong developments over the years in multi-cell memory, strong wifi offerings, way ahead in manufacturing, etc. .....


In terms of peripherals, that is not remotely true either. Integrated GPU, ports, etc. and/or companion chips with all the ports, arguably a good plan as you tune mfg for what you are trying to accomplish on a chip by chip basis.


To stay on top in such a fast moving industry for so long is really quite an accomplishment and should not be discounted.

Intel inside becomes Intel out side now

Company ruled the world by introducing the power hungry processors every year without peripherals, continuously changing the marketing strategy of the connectors, not by innovation, and miss leading advertise, Intel inside.

The nano-scale reduction and the increasing K of insulator, reached its limit now, 

There is no more fool around. 

The latest SOC and Specific purpose IC dominating the market. 

That starts, the of camel comes under hill.

It sounds like they're expecting to hit their number by attrition -- "The company says it will use methods like voluntary programs, retirements and leaving jobs vacant when employees leave."

As a public company, not sharing stuff is possible sometimes, but lying is lillegal.

They would say that wouldn't they! In the past any redundancy numbers were shrouded in secrecy. That is, after the workers left the company, Intel did not state exactly how many redundancies there were. So, they could say 5% now but the actual number could be closer to 10%...

How about some guesses as to the actual % that will be cut by year end? I take 7%.

I expect the year will continue to provide bad news for Intel and by mid-year another 2% or so layoff will be in the works. I think "Big silicon" is on the way out...
