Intel achieved record second-quarter revenue with 34 percent data-centric revenue growth and 7 percent PC-centric revenue growth YoY. These results were driven by strong sales of cloud, notebook, memory and 5G products in an environment where digital services and computing performance are essential to how we live, work and stay connected.
Second-quarter data-centric results were led by strength in the Data Center Group (DCG) with revenue up 43 percent YoY driven by broad strength including 47 percent YoY growth in cloud service provider revenue. Intel added to its data-centric product offerings in the second quarter with the introduction of new 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and new additions to its hardware and software AI portfolio for data center, network and intelligent-edge environments. Intel's memory business (NSG) set a new revenue record in the quarter, and Intel's portfolio for 5G network infrastructure gained customer momentum, most notably the 10nm-based Intel Atom® P5900 for wireless base stations. Mobileye continued to win new ADAS designs in a challenging economic environment for automotive, and Intel acquired Moovit, a mobility-as-a-service (MaaS) solutions company, advancing Mobileye's plan to become a complete mobility provider.
The PC-centric business (CCG) was up 7 percent YoY in the second quarter on notebook strength driven by the continued work- and learn at home dynamics of COVID-19, which also contributed to a volume decline in desktop form factors as demand shifted to notebooks. In the second quarter, Intel expanded its 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processor line-up with the launch of new Core S and H series processors for desktop and mobile gaming as well as the new 10th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro® processors, which deliver uncompromised productivity and hardware-based security features for commercial PCs. The second quarter also marked the launch of Intel Core processors with Intel® Hybrid Technology, code-named “Lakefield,” which utilize Foveros 3D packaging technology and feature a hybrid CPU architecture for power and performance scalability.
Intel is accelerating its transition to 10nm products this year with increasing volumes and strong demand for an expanding line up. This includes a growing portfolio of 10nm-based Intel Core processors with “Tiger Lake” launching soon, and the first 10nm-based server CPU “Ice Lake,” which remains planned for the end of this year. In the second half of 2021, Intel expects to deliver a new line of client CPU’s (code-named “Alder Lake”), which will include its first 10nm-based desktop CPU, and a new 10nm-based server CPU (code-named “Sapphire Rapids”).
The company's 7nm-based CPU product timing is shifting approximately six months relative to prior expectations.
The primary driver is the yield of Intel's 7nm process, which based on recent data, is now trending approximately twelve months behind the company's internal target.
The company will provide an update on its product and process technology transitions on today's Q2 earnings
webcast. Additional information regarding Intel’s results can be found in the Q2'20 Earnings Presentation available
