Intel Meltdown-, Spectre-Proof to Launch in 2018

E-mail Print PDF

Intel reports record revenues for Q4 and full-year 2017, reaching $17.1 billion for Q4 and $62.8bn for the full year-- even if the fallout of Meltdown and Spectre might affect future financials.

Intel Q4 2014 revenue growth is at 8% Y-o-Y, while 2017 growth reaches 9%. Chipzilla says most growth comes from "data-centric" operations, contrasting with PC-centric operation revenues declining by -2% Y-o-Y in Q4 2017 (or growing modestly by 3% for full-year 2017).

Also showing growth is IoT, with both Q4 and full-year 2017 revenues rising by 20% Y-o-Y. Non-volatile memory is up by 9% Y-o-Y in Q4 and 37% for the year, while programmable solutions revenues are up by 35% Y-o-Y for Q4 and 14% for overall 2017.

"2017 was a record year for Intel with record fourth-quarter results driven by strong growth of our data-centric businesses," CEO Brian Krzanich says. “The strategic investments we've made in areas like memory, programmable solutions, communications and autonomous driving are starting to pay off and expand Intel's growth opportunity. In 2018, our highest priorities will be executing to our data-centric strategy and meeting the commitments we make to our shareholders and our customers."

The earnings report also has Chipzilla assure investors it is working on hardware solutions for the Meltdown and Spectre situation. Krzanich promises security is top Intel priority, and as such products launching later in 2018 will have "silicon-based changes" to mitigate the threats.
