90nm means more profits


Intel, which currently makes only one desktop processor (Prescott) using the 90nm/300mm manufacturing technology is going to introduce two new chips, Dothan (notebook) and Nocona (server) based on the new manufacturing technologies, says David Wong, analyst with AG Edwards. This will boost Intel’s gross margins to a record 64-65% in the Dec 04 quarter, and even higher in 2005. Intel is currently offering 3.4GHz Prescott processors on 90nm technology, and Wong expects Prescott to scale to 3.8-4.0 GHz performance by the end of 2004.
