Intel sees more than 10 percent sales boost in Germany
"That (launch of Windows 8) will lead to a demand boost among retail customers," the head of Intel's German business, Christian Lamprechter, told Reuters on Tuesday.
Lamprechter said he was also banking on demand for the new "Ultrabook" category of super-thin PCs, which will be equipped with Intel's new Ivy Bridge chip technology, designed to consume less energy.
Intel's sales volumes in Germany have grown 4-6 percent per annum in previous years.
