The company reported net income of $4.52 billion. That figure represent's 34 percent year-over-year growth.
In the year-ago quarter, Intel reported adjusted earnings of 80 cents a share on $15.78 billion in revenue.

While the client computing group still brings in the lion's share of overall revenue, Intel has been shifting its focus away from the personal computer market amid declining PC shipments. The segment reported better-than-expected revenue of $8.86 billion, or roughly flat year-over-year.
The company has instead highlighted its opportunities in new markets such as artificial intelligence and cloud infrastructure.
Earlier this month, Intel said it is collaborating with Facebook to develop artificial intelligence chips for data centers.
