The idea is to expand the PC market "down" by grabbing market share from mobile ARM-based. Not yet a total unification which is and was for quite a while technically possible but a carefully controlled multilevel compatibility offerings with Windows 8 Blue providing unification at the high-end and web terminals like Android subsidized at the low-end in order to put the ARM based mobile centric companies in a bind. Intel is poised to take over mobile and Apple should start planning on Intel silicon -- the only way Apple can offer a comparable mobile unification with their PC's.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
