"Intel warned on Friday that its revenue for the first quarter would come in at between $8.7 billion and $9.1 billion [EUR 7.2 and 7.6 billion], roughly $500 million [EUR 415 million] lower than estimates the company issued in January. The chipmaker cited a weak market and a 'slight' market share loss. Analysts generally agree about the market, but are putting more emphasis on the loss of share. Some have pointed to the momentum shown by AMD, which has been far more aggressive over the past 18 months. The rival chipmaker has been strengthening its ties to PC makers, most prominently with HP, and keeping prices low."
