Samsung could overtake the Intel only if they can make a challenging application processors that can be actually used by other OEM’s to make the smart phones or tablets. With the recent investment by Intel in the wireless technology the overall sales by Intel will go up in the future. The Atom series processors are also making really good progress and we will see lot of low power embedded systems will use these processors.

And remember the mind-boggling capex. Un-emulated support from national government.

Thanks for this article. Very good for Samsung, they are gaining on Intel…and? Intel is during very well and I am sure they will come up with another marketing campaign to continue the outstanding work that they have started. Intel is like Microsoft, they have a strong computer user base. If Samsung doesn’t continues to make the gain that they did this year, I wonder if someone is going to do research on how Samsung continues to fall behind Intel. The pie in this area is big enough for both Samsung and Intel.

I wonder how Intel's push in the mobile market with Atom and purchasing Infineon's Wireless Solutions will help them. I would think this would help them hold off Samsung by riding a rapidly growing market. Of course, sometimes I think we over think the importance of some of these statistics. If they are #2, over 25% profitable, and making over 2 billion dollars a year, is that really bad? I think my company would take that. It's not like they are staying stagnant and not innovating. They are pushing in mobile with the Atom. They are innovating in the CE market with Google and Sony on the GoogleTV products. If Samsung does over take them, I think it's just a bounty of riches for the industry.

Nevetheless, there is some downside for diversified businesses. Some might be making losses and have to be covered by others.

Samsung's business is more diversified than Intel's as Intel historically has not been successful to grow beyond microprocessors despite many attempts...so Samsung will likely overtake Intel but I don't think it will happen as quickly as the article states...Kris

The "Others" category beats Intel by 4:1. This tells me there is a lot of diversity in the chip business. That's good.

no, no way it can't be possible due to the repo of intel across the world. it will easily grab the season.

Samsung is doing much ARM core. With the growing mobile and tablet markets, it might happen that Samsung will overtake Intel soon.
