Does anyone happen to know where I might be able to find this paper that was presented last week at ARM TechCon? I am currently taking a graduate level computer architecture course and I would love to present this article to the class. Any information anyone might be able to offer would be much appreciated.

We too saw some very innovative software from Russian coders in the 1990's and even in the 80's on the BBC Micro. The Acorn Risc Machine (ARM) computer of the mid 80's onwards had many emulators including x86/Microsoft emulations and they worked wellenough for many companies to run legacy software on. You can still pick these up on ebay for very little money (go for the RiscPC with latest version of RISC OS) I am sure they would surprise a few people - no they would surprise a lot of people. Especially given that everything was developed on a shoe string. Spend a few hundred pounds on a trip back in time and think where things could be now if Acorn had got the right investment!

I wonder how much that 40% of native performance is due to the x86 code. The ARM has more registers so does less stack shuffling to get its work done. Translated code has to pay the Intel Tax.

Hopefully the anti-trust rulings have put them on notice. Otherwise their business practices are un-ethical to say the least.

It is simply on its path. Intel will finally see a real business competitor. AMR is still small, but they have a real shot in making Intel sweat.

Yes. AMR is delivering better value per joule now. If we get Intel not to bundle illegal funds as they did with Dell to suppress AMD, we have a game here.

Yes, Intel will find it hard to attach AMR business model because of the octopus model

Good luck to ARM, we need a real competitor to Intel.

Intel cannot invade Samsung's vertically integrated ARM space, which will only grow, I think.

The real question is: Can ARM compete with Intel in the long run? It boils down to process and economics, not instruction set. Whomever delivers the most work per Joule wins.
