Intel is strip mining its current customers by jacking up newer server chip prices and discontinuing their older chips (due to 10nm fabs not being ready). Intel is producing few low-end chips(i3/i5), which has in part caused the current Ram glut.

These large customers that have caused a temporary surge in profit are in the process of migrating away from Intel.
