Company Intel Corporation, the world's leading microprocessor manufacturer, released its quarterly results showing its profits more than quadrupled year-over-year.
At the same time, net sales amounted to more than 10 billion US dollars, which is 44% more than in the same period last year. And this despite the fact that the first quarter is usually very dull for the microprocessor market. But Intel also had to pay a large contribution AMD, who won a lawsuit in a case on charges of dishonest business conduct.
These are the best figures in the history of the company. Intel Atom processors, designed for netbooks and other portable computers, played a significant role in their achievement. This year, the company intends to make as much effort as possible for their further development.
Naturally, such positive news could not but affect the growth of shares Intel, the cost of which immediately grew by 4%.
