very large, complex, power hungry die are typically the first candidates for shrinkage. Most of the mobiles do not fall into these categories.

Good question. It seems like mobile has struggled to get access to leading edge Intel tech, but the company is catching up with 22 nm parts planned for 2H2013.

Why is Intel not using its latest process(22nm) for its mobile cpus?? IINW 22nm Ivy Bridge CPUs are available in market for atleast 6+ months now.

Intel's 22nm mobile SOC is called "Merrifield", not Mary Field.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
