Data Center Group reported solid 11% growth in revenue to $3.1bn.
Intel reported 4.8% drop in its profit generated during the first quarter of 2014, as it has been struggling with sluggish PC demand.
During Q1, the chipmaker’s revenue was up 1% to $12.8bn year over year, and its operating income reached $2.5bn, while net income dropped 5% to $1.9bn.
The chipmaker’s Data Center Group saw solid 11% growth and generated revenue of $3.1bn, while its PC Client Group revenue reached $7.9bn, a 1% drop year-over-year.
Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said that in the first quarter the company saw solid growth in the data centre, signs of improvement in the PC business, and shipped 5 million tablet processors, making strong progress on goal of 40 million tablets for 2014.
"Additionally, we demonstrated our further commitment to grow in the enterprise with a strategic technology and business collaboration with Cloudera, we introduced our second-generation LTE platform with CAT6 and other advanced features, and we shipped our first Quark products for the Internet of Things," Krzanich said.
The previous week, Intel modified its financial reporting structure to better reflect its focus on the Internet of things unit as well as mobile processors.
