PC Makers Blame Intel For Revenue Shortfall
PC makers are pointing the finger at Intel accusing the semiconductor giant of being the culprit behind the revenue downturn in the technology industry.
Both Dell and HP called out the chipmaker by name in earnings reports which revealed lower than expected revenue.
Intel continues to forecast a shortfall in chips despite growing demand for its products and remains central to the PC supply chain.
Intel has faltered at a crucial time as companies look to upgrade from the Windows 7 to more up to date operating systems.
The supply issue has been going on for more than a year and has come at a time when PC shipments are increasing due to strong W10 demand and the W7 end of support.
