Seems to me that customers have been saying all along 'responsiveness' and Intel has always (until now at least) been hearing 'performance'. This story is encouraging but I wonder how the message of 'responsiveness' rather than 'performance' goes down at the hardware engineering level where the message has been all along about performance. I don't yet hear the Intel message as being 'look how responsive our new sub-20nm FinFETs are'. Responsiveness is a system-level metric, whilst it needs attention at the device level for sure, that's not in itself sufficient to ensure it. Microsoft will need bringing on-board too...

thank you Junko and Silicon_Smith, I could accept that 90% of the electronics is designed by embedded system provider, I actually have seen cases when it was 100%...but I though the look and feel of the final gadget (e.g laptop) is for a final OEM to decide...Kris

In fact, most semiconductor vendors with strong embedded portfolios contribute almost 90% of the electronics design at the OEMs/ODMs. TI/Qualcomm come to mind as well. The OEMs themselves are more involved in marketing and eco-system management.

Hi. No, Intel isn't getting into the laptop business. But remember, most OEMs and ODMs these days do need a lot of handholding when it comes to the development of a host of new devices (not just Ultrabooks but also emerging tablets). Intel, with its motherboard business, can offer convincing [design] ideas and hardware design.

Interesting story Junko...but how can Intel transfer this consumer perspective into design of microprocessor?...and the other way around: how can they influence how the laptop looks? I presume they are not getting into laptop business and don't want to the job for their customers...Kris

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

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.
