Intel’s desktop sales increased by 15% throughout the year, while notebook sales increased by 40% year-on-year, which is incredible. However, these gains are at the cost of price reductions, as the average selling price (ASP) of Intel desktops and notebooks has fallen by 5% and 17%, respectively, indicating that Intel is lowering pricing to remain competitive with AMD.
