Intel reported that its personal computer oriented sales were up 16 percent while its datacentric computing was up 22 percent.

“Stronger than expected customer demand across our PC and data-centric businesses continued in the third quarter. This drove record revenue and another raise to our full-year outlook, which is now up more than six billion dollars from our January expectations. We are thrilled that in a highly competitive market, customers continue to choose Intel,” said Bob Swan, Intel CFO and interim CEO, in a statement. Swan added that Intel is in a position to win market share in an expanded $300 billion total addressable market.

ADAS processor acquisition Mobileye achieved record quarterly revenue of $191 million, up approximately 50 percent YoY and brought its year-to-date design win total to 20.

While processor  and non-volatile memory sales performed well two business units that did less well were the IoT group and the programmable solutions group, which includes Altera. The IoT group sales were $919 million, up 8 percent YoY. PSG sales were $496 million, up 6 percent YoY.
