In 3 years Samsung will have a SOC chip targeting each of these markets Smartphones, tablets, laptops, servers. Intel should be very very nervous about Samsung.

Samsung would never touch x86, and ARM in laptops is far-fetched at this point for a number of reasons: compatibility, performance, and Intel's ever-shrinking process tech. Servers are a different matter, but remember the chip Samsung has slated for 2014 is going to be competing with Intel's 14nm architecture. The outcome is far from decided.

These are the mostly awaited change in the processors. Once this devices are incorporated in the processor designs it will surely reduce the design complexities as that will become the part of device manufacturer.

Intel is clearly has a plan for interconnect evolution,(IDF may give us more insight) with recent acquisitions, we will very likely see Ethernet (40G, 100G, 400G) and Infiniband continue to be the leaders. Both are a decade ahead on Bandwidth, latency is not a issue if your 4 to 10 times the data rate, (ie RapidIO is only 10G) Network Adapters and switches will be integrated into the processor or/and Chipset, and in many cases already are.

I expect AMD will weigh in here before long with an interconnect based on technology acquired with SeaMicro

AMD lacks execution strategy because they are not good in marketing. They have great technologies.

"In April it bought an interconnect group from Cray for $140." ---- Wow, that was dirt cheap. ;-) I guess the word "million" has been omitted.

Any word on optical pcie or other optical interconnects ? Altera and avago demoed an fpga with the optical transceivers built-in but still yet to hear any more about it. http://www.avagotech.com/pages/optical_fpga

Also looks like xilinx has a QPI interconnect and can put a vertex7 in a xeon socket http://press.xilinx.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=212763&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=1733820&highlight=

Good to note Xilinx. Expect that company to move into mobile space in coming years and compete with ARM

Compete with ARM ? They are using ARM9 hardcores in the zynq chips

Just to clarify, the Xilinx parts are Cortex-A9, not ARM9. Certainly not the fastest Cortex-A9 parts you can get on the market, but it is the latest ARM instruction set (until ARMv8 devices enter market) so latest and greatest software will run on these Zynq devices.

There is chance that ARM will give Intel a real fight. AMD is a toast and out of the picture.
