Intel accepts the loss of market share
At Citi Global Tech Conference the Director of Microprocessor at Intel, Jason Grebe openly tells to an analyst that Intel has lost its market share. It is easily understood that AMD is its competitor. He adds on saying now Intel has to fight more aggressively to retain its share in the market. Jason Grebe further commented on Intel’s CPU market share and said;
“In general, if there is a CPU sale happening on the planet, we want to be involved in it. So we don’t look at any segment of the market and say, okay, we are going to walk away from that segment or that we’re not be interested there. We want to aggressively compete in all segments”.
On the PC side, Intel faced a supply problem for six to twelve months and they had to lose some low ens mobile and desktop share in the market. However, Jason Grebe makes a point of improving at a fast pace as that is the only option for Intel at present.
