Intel to release Ivy Bridge processors at the end of April
You are too quick to condemn.
Was everyone in agreemente with the Intel 40% forecast? Nope. I think there were a number who thought the number was high.
Do you think that Digitimes got their forecast from Intel? Nope. Digitimes has a source at one or more of the Asian vendors.
Upon careful reading of the article ....
The Digitimes 15-20% number came from their "sources" who are telling them the Ivy Bridge intro date.
Do you think that Intel would tell Digitimes the intro date? Nope.
"By the end of 2012, ultrabooks are expected to account for 15-20% of total consumer notebook shipments with the proportion to rise to 40% in 2013 and surpass 50% by the end of 2013, the sources noted."
