Due to a reporting error, the story, "Intel reports Q3 profit growth despite Atom's struggles," posted to the wire on Tuesday, misstated the day of the week. Intel's third-quarter earnings reports were announced on Tuesday.

The first paragraph has been updated, and now reads:

Intel on Tuesday reported profit and revenue gains for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 on strong PC and server chip sales, overcoming a drop in Atom tablet and netbook chip sales.
