One thing they can consider is to revamp the ugly x86 architecture.

Intel's focus on low power consuming 32 nm medfield for smart phones will be a boon to the smart phone manufactureres and users.

Intel already have a great DSP kernel inside x86 chips (IA32 or IA64) starting with MMX series since 1994, Robert. And it works well otherwise you should see the H264 movies only to DVD :P

Thunderbolt on iPhones and iPads? That would do wonders for your battery life. This technology may be 'royalty free' for Intel chip customers, but it is not an open standard - thus only one supplier for the chips - expect it to remain costly and un-popular until it's open like PCIe or USB.

What if Apple puts Thunderbolt on iPhones and iPads? Other OEMs are sure to follow.

@doubleudot: We covered those peripheral folks. But still only one system OEM--Apple

Sony, Canon, WD, LaCie and others are apparently on the Thunderbolt bandwagon. Ya gotta keep up.

Like to point out that DSPs and Low-power general purpose processors are very different. DSPs have very different constraints like real-time, predictability, etc. They throw out a lot of what Intel is good at, e.g., speculative execution, branch prediction, etc. In contrast, doing a low power design is right up their ally as they have all ingredients except low power. I say Intel has a much stronger change here.

The software issue is something of a red herring regarding CPU selection. The platform is defined more by the OS than the CPU anymore. Change one compiler switch and recompile and most applications can speak ARM, as long as the OS libraries are consistent. Larry M.

They can get into anything they want through acquisitions. This is one company that anyone must respect because in their domain, they are very big

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
