Business Unit Summary

Intel previously announced several organizational changes to accelerate its execution and innovation by allowing it to capture growth in both large traditional markets and high-growth emerging markets. This includes the reorganization of Intel’s business units to capture this growth and provide increased transparency, focus and accountability. As a result, the company modified its segment reporting in the first quarter of 2022 to align to the previously announced business reorganization. All prior-period segment data has been retrospectively adjusted to reflect the way the company internally manages and monitors operating segment performance starting in fiscal year 2022.

Business Highlights

▪       Intel continues to make progress with its goal of achieving five nodes in four years. Intel 4 is progressing towards high-volume-manufacturing, and the company expects to tape out a production stepping of Meteor Lake in the fourth quarter, the final step in taking the 14th Gen Intel Core processors from the design phase to early production in silicon. Intel 3 continues to progress on schedule. On Intel 20A and Intel 18A, Intel’s first internal test chips and those of a major potential foundry customer have taped out with products undergoing fabrication.

▪       In the third quarter, CCG launched the 13th Gen Intel Core processors, which offer the world’s fastest desktop processor and optimized gaming, content creation and productivity. CCG also introduced Intel Unison to deliver best-in-industry multidevice user experiences.

▪       DCAI shipped its 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor high-volume SKUs. In addition, Google Introduced its C3 machine series powered by Intel’s 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor and Google’s custom Intel Infrastructure Processing Unit E3200.

▪       NEX introduced its 12th Gen Intel Core processors optimized for IoT applications, designed for use cases across retail, banking, hospitality, education, industrial manufacturing and healthcare.

▪       AXG launched the Intel Data Center GPU Flex Series, giving customers a single GPU solution for a wide range of visual cloud workloads, and the Intel Arc A770 and A750 desktop GPUs, bringing much-needed GPU pricing and performance balance to gamers around the world.

▪       This week Mobileye went public on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange, which Intel believes will unlock value for Intel’s stockholders.

▪       IFS announced that NVIDIA has committed to joining the U.S. Department of Defense’s (DOD) RAMP-C program, led by Intel, which enables both commercial foundry customers and the DOD to take advantage of Intel’s at-scale investments in leading-edge technologies. In addition, since the second quarter, IFS has expanded engagements to seven of the 10 largest foundry customers, coupled with consistent pipeline growth to include 35 customer test chips.

During the quarter, Intel introduced the Semiconductor Co-Investment Program (SCIP), a new funding model for the capital-intensive semiconductor industry. As part of SCIP, Intel signed a definitive agreement with Brookfield Asset Management, one of the largest global alternative asset managers, under which the companies will jointly invest up to $30 billion in Intel’s manufacturing expansion at its Ocotillo campus in Chandler, Arizona. The company also made progress toward creating a geographically balanced, secure and resilient semiconductor supply chain as it broke ground on two of the world’s most advanced chipmaking facilities in Ohio. This site is intended to power a new generation of innovative products from Intel and serve the needs of foundry customers as part of the company’s IDM 2.0 strategy.

As Intel embarks on its next phase of IDM 2.0, it is embracing a foundry mindset and model for its IFS customers and Intel product lines. To drive this, Intel created the IDM 2.0 Acceleration Office (IAO) led by Stuart Pann, chief business transformation officer. The IAO will be responsible for fully operationalizing Intel’s IDM 2.0 model and for developing and implementing the systems and processes to support the company’s internal requirements and external foundry customer commitments. This is intended to allow Intel to identify and address structural inefficiencies that exist in its current model, achieve more transparency on its financial execution, better measure itself against other foundries and drive to best-in-class foundry performance.
