How Intel Can Thrive As PC Sector Lags

$200-$400 PCs

Intel pointed out during its most recent conference call that clam shell sized computers will reach the $300 range. The hybrid functionality of tablet/PC will be below $400. When Bay Trail is released, prices could drop even lower, to the $200-$400 range.

Mobile Strategy

The Atom processor architecture is central to Intel’s mobile strategy. Silvermont, which is the next generation for the atom architecture, is touted as delivering over five-fold reduction in power, with a three-fold improvement in performance. The architecture supports Microsoft’s (MSFT) Windows and Google’s (GOOG) Android operating systems. And Samsung’s (SSNLF:OTC) Galaxy Tab 3 will be powered by an atom processor.

Related Investments

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD) and Hewlett Packard (HPQ) are two companies that rely on PC sales. AMD is diversifying away from this market by supplying chips to Playstation and Xbox consoles. Meanwhile Hewlett Packard is trying to grow market share in enterprise software, instead of waiting for the PC market to rebound.
