Intel unsure when stimulus will lift chip demand

Reuters: "Intel Corp, the world's largest chip maker, is uncertain when demand for semiconductors will revive, Chairman Craig Barrett said on Wednesday.

Asked when he expected to see a recovery in the chip industry, Barrett said stimulus packages being rolled out by governments around the globe would probably have an impact over the next six to 18 months.

"So you pick your time that you want the recovery to occur in that six to 18-month period, and your guess is as good as anyone's," he told reporters during a visit to Beijing."
