英特尔：进军物联网 PC拖了后腿 - OFweek物联网
据外媒报道，英特尔发布一季度财报，PC板块近乎持平，物联网板块表现出较强增长。 英特尔在今年的CES上表现出深入、近乎急躁的对物联网的关注。英特尔的确展示了一系列平板、手机以及超极本，但展会的亮点却不在于此。发光的 智能碗 、监控心率的耳机、联网的婴儿服还能大哭。显然英特尔对这一领域有些痴迷，原因在于：物联网是英特尔目前最有前途的业务。 英特尔发布的一季度财报显示，作为摇钱树的PC板块营收下跌1%。看起来似乎持平的电脑业务， 衰退 才是更准确的词 去年PC行业遭遇最快速度的下跌。于此同时英特尔在移动领域（包括手机、平板芯片）暴跌61%，令人震惊。 物联网目前是英特尔的亮点，较去年同期增长32%。数字表明这些 智能 产品是有需求的，需要植入芯片的产品对英特尔来说是巨大的优势。对于英特尔来说 智能碗 有市场是个不错的消息，但这一市场仅占英特尔全部销售额的3.8%。物联网要花多长时间才能取代英特尔电脑的支柱地位？移动领域的业务如何处理？这对英特尔来说都是问题。（元器件交易网毛毛 编译） 以下为原文： If you set foot in Intel s CES booth thiswinter, you probably sensed a theme: the company is deeply, almost manically,focused on the Internet of Things. Sure, Chipzilla was showing off some tabletsand phones, along with a shelf full of Ultrabooks, but the highlights of theshow were all a little more unusual. Think: a light-up smart mug, headphones that can monitor your heart rate. An internet-connected baby onesie,for crying out loud. It was obvious the company was a bit obsessed, and nowit s clear why: the Internet of Things is currently the most promising piece ofIntel s business. Take the company s first-quarter earnings,for example, which just came out today. Intel s revenue from PCs, normally itsbiggest money maker, dipped 1 percent. At best, you could say the computerbusiness is flat but really, decline is the more accurate word --the PC industry faced its steepest-ever drop last year. Meanwhile, revenue formobile products (read: phone and tablet chips) plummeted 61 percent. Yikes. But the Internet of Things -- now that s abright spot. Sales there were up 32 percent from the year-earlier period. Weknow, we know: that s partly because the Internet of Things simply wasn t, uh,a thing last year. But the numbers do suggest that where there s demand forsome sort of smart object, Intel has a strong chance of getting oneof its chips inside. That s good news for Intel, but maybe not good enough:even with a booming smart coffee-mug market, connected objects still accountedfor just 3.8 percent of Intel s overall sales last quarter. How long will ittake smart baby onesies to catch up before Intel doesn t have to use PCs as acrutch? And what s the deal with that tanking mobile business, anyway? We lllet you chew on that while we wait for Intel to host a conference call. We llupdate this post if we glean any new details.
