Despite the good press, Intel has a tough quarter

Despite the good press, Intel has a tough quarter

Chip maker Intel has been riding high recently, with the release of the first Intel-based Apple computers and the praise heaped upon its new Core Duo chip, including a CNET Best of CES nod.

But Intel's stock dropped late Tuesday after a disappointing earnings report highlighted weak fourth-quarter performance for 2005. Soft sales for desktop computers in general were blamed, as was a gain in market share by rival AMD. The New York Times reports that Intel's "revenue fell $200 million short of the low end of the company's own forecast, issued less than a month ago."
