Intel’s Jason Kimrey: Windows 7 End-Of-Life Opportunity Is ‘Unprecedented’

“[There are roughly] 40 million devices that still are [running] Windows 7 today that have to be upgraded [with Microsoft ending support and security updates for Windows 7 effective Jan. 14, 2020],” said Intel Channel Chief Jason Kimrey. “This is an incredible opportunity. If you look at the data from any of our client [device] partners they're doing well because of this opportunity. Now is the time to really finish the job.”

What is Intel's progress with the CPU shortage?

So on the shortage side, [Intel CEO] Bob [Swan] (pictured) announced last fall that we were going to bring on a billion dollars' worth of new fab capacity, and essentially we're starting to see that increased capacity start to provide the output that we need.

I think in [the third quarter], we believe that our output will meet demand, but we'll still have some challenges in product mix. So we're still kind of working through that, but I think by [the fourth quarter], we expect supply to meet demand and, even those areas of where we've had product shortages [on] the small core side, we [expect to meet] demand across our different products by then. So we're on track with that increased output in 14-nanometer [processors]. But then also we're on track with our 10-nanometer part availability that we previously announced with Ice Lake.

When you say small core, are you talking about lower-end processors on the client or server side?

Mostly client. This tends to be in the Celeron and Pentium family.
