Although the stats of this giant improved compared to Q1 2015, Intel is still behind its 2014 financial results.

Although the global PC market is cooling down, Intel continues to deliver strong financial results, thanks to the company's expansion across multiple markets. According to the news release concerning their financial results in Q2 2015, Intel had a revenue of $13.2 billion during this period and a gross margin of 62.5 percent, slightly better than the latest outlook.

The results of various Intel groups are these:

  • Client Computing Group - $7.5 billion revenue, 2 percent sequentially up and 14 down year-over-year
  • Data Center Group - $3.9 billion revenue, 5 percent sequentially up and also 10 percent up year-over-year
  • Internet of Things Group - $559 million, up 5 percent and 10 percent year-over-year
  • Software and services segments - $534 million, sequentially flat and 3 percent down year-over-year

The release mentioned earlier also reveals that Intel 6th gen Core Skylake processors are qualified for production and "will deliver exciting new PC experiences in the second half of 2015." The company managed to generate $3.4 billion in cash during the quarter, paying dividends of $1.1 billion and also using $697 million to repurchase 22 million shares.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
