While these numbers are nice and speak good of ARM, it's only one half of the coin. The software dictates who will make or break the market. But it is pleasing to hear that X86 need not be the defacto standard on every PC.

Or... what if ARM go to a 64 bit chip, or even 128? Intel and AMD would be in big trouble across the board. Then throw in a Chrome/Android hybrid - say, Android 4 or 5...

I am wondering how performance number is measured. 10x is likely GPU performance. Since it is still Cortex-A9 based design, twice amount of cores and reasonable amount of frequency boost will not give more than 3x ARM CPU performance increase. Intel ATOM is already in big trouble. Current generation of Cortex-A9 is already exceeding ATOM processor performance at higher frequency. Give performance number QualComm and TI gave on their next generation processor. ARM processors might soon get into desktop/notebook market. In a few years, ARM processors is likely to make in road into server market. We would like to see Intel x86 monopoly being challenged by ARM architecture. In 10 years or sooner, we might be wondering who is going to challenge ARM dominance from mobile to server world. What if ARM stops license its IP and starts to manufacture own processors like today's Intel to maximize its profit margin?

"The company rated the processor at 11,352 on the Coremark benchmark, significantly above the Intel Core2Duo T7200." Wowww! Intel is going to be smoked :) ARM CPU speeds are increasing much faster than expected. Intel wont come up with such faster processor for mobile segment, else its own notebook segment margins will get cannibalized.

It seems that Nvidia is one company that has an excellent strategy to make inroads in the mobile computing space. Even though Their desktop segment is being battered by AMD, their concentrated efforts to claim a rightful place in the mobile domain seems to be really working...

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
