3 Chip Stocks to Note Now: Intel Reveals New Xeon Chips, Teardown Signals Broadcom Share Loss, and Nvidia Releases Shield Ship Date
Intel Corp. (NASDAQ:INTC): Intel has announced plans to introduce a low-power, high performance system-on-chips in the Xeon E3 family for compute, storage, and networking, Gigaom reports. The chips, built on 14-nanometer Broadwell architecture, could be released next year and will be built “for processor and graphics-centric workloads such as online gaming and media transcoding.”
Broadcom (NASDAQ:BRCM): Barclays says its recent GS4 mini-i9195 and Galaxy Mega 6.3-i9205 tear-downs confirm the firm’s recent bearish statements noting further share loss across nearly all original equipment manufacturers, and not only Samsung. It rates the shares at Underweight.
Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA): After a delay of the original ship date that upset numerous preorder-holding customers, Nvidia says that shipments of its Shield hand-held gaming device will begin on July 31, after the company postponed deliveries due to a mechanical malfunction in the units. ”Our goal has always been to ship the perfect product, so we made sure we submitted SHIELD to the most rigorous mechanical testing and quality assurance standards in the industry,” the company said.
