Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 1:10 pm

Intel Corp., the world’s top chip maker, shipped 5 million of its new dual-core processors in the first two months of its sales, amid signs of strong demand for laptop PCs this quarter, company executives said on Monday.

Intel reached the sales mark for its new Core 2 Duo chipsets, which use a pair of chips at their core, within the first 60 days of their going on sale on July 27, Thomas Kilroy, vice general manager of the digital enterprise group, said at a developers’ forum hosted by Intel in Taipei.

Intel gave the sales figure as other executives forecast a strong fourth quarter for notebook PCs, despite some concerns about possible shortfalls due to a string of recent recalls involving batteries from Sony Corp.
