Intel 0.13 micron crossover – ‘not this year’

Intel today said the world should not expect the crossover to 0.13 micron technology to take place in 2001.

Speaking during a conference call where the chip giant announced its first quarter results, Paul Otellini, exec VP and general manager of Intel's Architecture Group, described Q1 as "a tough quarter". He said demand had been weak in all geographical areas, and especially bad in the US.

He added that the disappointing levels of PC demand had spread to other product areas, such as servers and communication devices.

In the Q&A that followed the announcement, Otellini was asked about when the crossover was likely to take place with the 300mm wafers using 0.13 micron technology. When would shipments of these wafers be bigger than those of the 200mm wafers with 0.18 micron technology?

The only answer Otellini would give was: "Not this year."

The 0.13 micron products will launch later in 2001 - with the mobile chips out mid-year, and those for desktops due on the market in Q4.

Meanwhile, Intel CFO Andy Bryant said the worst seemed to be over regarding Intel's chip business, which he said he believed had bottomed out. ®
