Intel’s more than 20 Years of supremacy as the sovereign of the silicon-based semiconductor is on the edge to conclude this week. This is due to the fact that Samsung Electronics of South Korea tweaks the U.S. manufacturer down to turn out to be the top player in the manufacture of computer chips.
Samsung posted record-high sales and profit of this quarter. Industry experts claim that it elbowed Intel aside in the April–June quarter as the top maker of semiconductors. This has been a dream come true for the South Korean tech major. On the other hand, Intel has been in shock and has claimed to gain the leading spot back in the future.
Last month, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. claimed that it will spend minimum $18.6 Billion in South Korea to expand its growth in displays for next-generation smartphone and memory chips, in a plan that guarantees to make around 0.5 Million jobs.
The deal highlighted the company’s willpower to broaden its growth in memory chips, which is anticipated to propel third most-valuable company in Asia to confirm profit in 2017. It periodically spends over $10 Billion in chips yearly, assisting it stay prior to rivals such as Japan’s Toshiba Corp. and cross-town competitor SK Hynix Inc.
Earlier this month, Intel Corp. declared a new range of microprocessors for information centers. This announcement triggered up a clash with Advanced Micro Devices and others for the profitable venture of providing the chips that fuel cloud computing.
The new Xeon Scalable Processor chips offer far better support for computing applications of next generation such as driverless cars and artificial intelligence. This was claimed by Vice President of artificial intelligence products group of Intel, Naveen Rao to the media in an interview.
The chips are targeted at firms comprising Microsoft Corp., Alphabet’s Google, Amazon.com Inc. and others that function data centers with millions of computers, both to offer computing horsepower for users who do not wish to maintain and own their personal computer systems, as well as to fuel their own services.
Well, let us see as to how much time Samsung will sustain as the leader.
