Intel reported quarterly earnings and revenue well ahead of expectations and said it expects a record year despite the continuing stagnation in the PC business. The company is also raising its full-year outlook for both sales and per-share earnings.

The bottom line: While sales were flat in the PC chip unit, the company saw significant growth in its other key areas including flash memory, data center chips and Internet-of-things products.

The company reported per-share earnings, excluding items, of $1.01 compared with expectations of around 80 cents, with revenue of $16.1 billion, ahead of consensus estimates of $15.7 billion, per Zacks.

"We executed well in the third quarter with strong results across the business, and we're on track to a record year," Intel CEO Brian Krzanich said in a statement.For the year, Intel now expects revenue of $62 billion, up $700 million from its prior forecast, with per-share earnings (excluding items) of around $3.25, up 25 cents from earlier projections.
