Intel reported a first-quarter profit that jumped more than 400 percent over the same period last year, citing strong demand for laptop chips.
They also released an 8-core Xeon 7500 processor late in the quarter, and expect good server results going forward.
Other comments from an earnings conference call included:
* Demand for "high-end products" was strong and "corporate demand is returning."
* "Consumer and corporate are spending more on on horsepower. They're buying high-priced machines in a time that you would think budgets would be tight."
* 32-nanometer chip technology: fastest technology ramp ever for Intel.
* Four 32-nanometer factories to be online by end of year.
