Don't confuse the performance of ARM implemenatations, optimsed for low power and small die area with the performance of RISC processors in general. Since the Pentium Pro Intel's chips have a RISC core and a decoder of x86 intructions into RISC micro-ops. CISC processors generally refer to older processors that use micro-code to sequence operations generally over several clock cycles. The RISC v CISC war is over and RISC won.

One thing is to claim that a RISC cpu can perfrom the same tasks as a CISC, but the penalties incurred may be too much to bare (ssslllooowww ).

I would know 3 good reasons to switch from x86 to Arm. Performance, Power and Cost are the same for both . Giuann

Customers are sticking with Windows in industrial electronics!?

It can't be a good thing for competition with Windows dominance in the desktop computer market. That said I do not think the same will happen in the handheld market. Android will have the last word, I reckon.

I for one do not want anything close to Windows on my smart phone or on my tablet. I believe Microsoft is making a mistake and Windows 8 will be a flop, as every Windows version between XP and 7 were.

Windows on ARM is definitely a strong competition for the Intel in the future. Particularly in the areas like Industrial electronics where the customers has to stick to x86 platform to support the windows will re consider their decisions to go to ARM who can provide really low power and multiple manufacturer support ARM solutions.

Yes, this is a very interesting article. I support the comments that one contributor made earlier. I have no idea “what” or “why” this will require 4 different OS for ARM. This sounds like a great deal for ARM.
