In fact, our data-centric businesses grew 25 percent through June, and cloud revenue grew a whopping 43 percent in the first six months. Intel CFO and interim CEO Bob Swan’s “Supply Update” starts by noting the growth of the processor industry and secondly the performance of our PC-centric business has been even more surprising like the second-quarter PC shipments grew globally for the first time in six years, with this it brings pressure to its factory network.
