China has introduced a new by-law that will allow its companies to sue for damages in the event that their financial interests are affected by actions taken by third-party, non-American companies abroad.
ANALYSIS In announcing the departure of Bob Swan as chief executive, Intel has made sure to mention that the announcement has nothing to do with either its financial performance in 2020 or its failure to introduce 7nm CPUs on time.
American firm Qualcomm Technologies, with 29%, remained top of the market for smartphone application processors - also known as system-on-chip - during the second quarter of the year, despite losing three percentage points year-on-year.
Intel will be forced to delay the introduction of 7nm CPUs, with the company telling investors on Friday it would have to push back the schedule for producing the most advanced semiconductors by six months as it has no economically viable way to produce them at the moment.
