"We're short Intel," Chanos told cable television network CNBC. Chanos said he has been "shorting" or betting against the company's shares for the past six months.

Chanos, who has been critical of the personal computer space and has bet against companies such as IBM and Hewlett Packard, said on Intel: "It's got the same challenges."
